Preconference Excursions 
This year’s excursions have been timed so that you can attend one from 1-3pm ET and one from 3:30-5:30 pm ET, if you choose. A third to a pharmaceutical plant may be added at 1-3pm ET. Opening Reception for the conference begins at 6pm ET at the conference hotel.

Excursion 1: Reading Terminal Market
When: Thursday, June 23, 1:00-3:00pm ET
Location:  
Description: This tour is for anyone interested in entrepreneurial resilience during a crisis, Philadelphia history, and/or great food! The Reading Terminal Market (RTM) is one of America’s largest and oldest public markets, housed since 1893 in a National Historic Landmark building. https://readingterminalmarket.org/  RTM offers an incredible selection of locally grown & exotic produce, locally sourced meats and poultry, plus the finest seafood, cheeses, baked goods, and confections. Built next to the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company’s elevated terminal, this street-level market reverberated with the sounds of overhead trains until the railroad closed in 1976. Inbound and outbound commuters, as well as city residents from many neighborhoods got food items and meals from as many as 250 vendors and 100 farmers packed into the grid layout. Cycles of prosperity and hard times repeated throughout the 20th century, with a significant renewal effort in the 1990s tied to construction of the nearby Philadelphia Convention Center. COVID posed another challenge to the market’s vitality as in-person shopping shrunk to nearly nothing. The market pivoted quickly to online ordering and delivery, among other innovations that kept it open throughout the pandemic. Now its more than 80 merchants have reestablished the gastronomic bazaar that its original planners envisioned; in fact, RTM was just voted “Best Public Market in America” by USA Today. We’ll meet with RTM’s General Manager and the Chair of its active Volunteer Committee. You can plan to eat lunch ahead of our start at 1pm or stay for souvenir shopping after we conclude at 3pm.

Excursion 2: The New Pavilion at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP)
When: Thursday, June 23, 3:30-5:30pm ET
Location: Meet at conference hotel for short walk to Pavilion (escorted) or meet in lobby of Pavilion (1 Convention Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19104)
Description: This tour is for anyone interested in innovating and implementing new spaces and workflows, not just in health care. Opened in November 2021, the new Pavilion is one of the largest and most technologically advanced hospitals in the United States. The $1.6-billion facility consists of 17 floors and 504 patient rooms and was designed with the future in mind. Come tour the hospital then discuss the innovations with hospital leaders. We suspect that the lessons in design, implementation, workforce and operations management and other topics, apply across many industry contexts. The multilayered design process used behavioral research to guide design choices at each step, including input from thousands of employees through a series of life-size mockups of clinical spaces and simulations that the design team used to test design assumptions and generate feedback. You can watch a 1-minute video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzOveJDK7iEor), an overview of the pavilion design process and features (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5Po8XbcbmU) and/or a Drone Tour (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZeR1AGk_Uk).

Opening Plenary | Innovations Driving New Industry Disruption and Emergence

Particularly in the last few years, we have witnessed the rise of innovations that have disrupted existing industries as well of those that have sparked new industries. It has been exhilarating for some, daunting for others, and both for others. In this plenary, three renowned panelists will each discuss an innovation that is disrupting an industry or industries, leading to a moderated, cross-thematic discussion of how innovations can transform industries in exciting, unexpected, and concerning ways. The innovations that will be discussed are telemedicine disrupting the health care industry (speaker: Joseph Kvedar, MD), artificial intelligence in the consumer products industry (speaker: Renee Richardson Gosline, PhD), and electric vehicles disrupting the transportation and energy sectors (Kristin Dziczek, MPP, MS). Jeffrey Furman, PhD, ISA Innovation & Entrepreneurship chair, will moderator the plenary. All of our lives have been or will be touched by these innovations and themes in these industries likely apply to our own work, making this plenary relevant to all conference attendees.

Renee Richardson Gosline, PhD, Senior Lecturer in the Management Science group at the MIT Sloan School of Management; Head of the Human-AI Interaction group at MIT's Initiative of The Digital Economy; Digital Fellow at Stanford's Digital Economy Lab; Author of forthcoming book, "The Human Algorithm" (MIT Press); 2020 Thinkers50 Radar List of thinkers who are "putting a dent in the universe". 

 

 

Joseph Kvedar, MD, Professor, Harvard Medical School; Senior Advisor, Virtual Care, Mass General Brigham; Chair of the Board of the American Telemedicine Association; Athurd of "The New Mobile Age: how Technology Will Extend the Healthspan and Optimize the Lifespan (2017)", Editor, npj Digital Medicine, a Nature Research Journal.

 

 

Kristin Dziczek, MPP, MS, Policy Advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago; former senior vice president of research at the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) from 2005-former associate director of the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship in New Space Industries 

The space sector is currently undergoing a paradigmatic shift. What used to be the exclusive domain of two superpowers twenty years ago is now being democratized and made accessible to established organizations and entrepreneurs from both developed and emerging countries. This new space era is a vibrant environment for technological innovation and entrepreneurship translating science fiction into reality and creating a sustainable future for our planet. It is being shaped by major technological advances in launch vehicles, satellites, robotics, telecommunications and new business models around space tourism, space habitats, lunar and interplanetary exploration, and even management of space debris. However, like any era of major technological disruption, it is subject to significant uncertainty and change. How long would it take for the emerging space opportunities to achieve fruition and for the companies to build sustainable business models around new technological innovations remain open questions? This session would provide a holistic account of how technology, innovation and entrepreneurship is shaping the emerging space sector in terms of the global business opportunities and challenges, and the future implications for our society and our planet. The panelists are global experts on market and technology trends, business strategies, public policy and geopolitical considerations, and would provide participants with a rich account of the new space era both in terms of the industry context and also the research opportunities.

Plenary | Innovation and Competition: New Rules?

Debates about the relationship between innovation and competition are not new but have new urgency in the present moment.  Prevailing notions that antitrust actions are only appropriate when corporate M&A would cause consumer prices to rise are challenged, evoking an earlier era when the concentration of power was, by itself, a reason for regulatory action.  In parallel, debates continue about whether Big Tech should be viewed as the primary source of disruptive and growth-enhancing innovations or as a barrier to innovations from smaller new entrants, echoing two different phases of Schumpeter’s thinking.  Finally, privacy is rising to the forefront of policy making, with new voices are challenging the idea that privacy regulation will “stifle innovation”.  Important differences in tackling these issues are evident across the U.S., the EU, and China.  These distinguished panelists will bring varied perspectives from the legal and regulatory arena, applied especially to the major platform businesses that affect our daily lives so heavily.
