The Frontiers of Innovation conference was held at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), March 31–April 2, 2008, and hosted participants from more than 50 countries. The conference highlighted how governments can be more effective at solving problems and improving the lives of their citizens through innovation.
The conference—designed by HKS faculty for senior managers, elected officials, and nonprofit leaders—included crosscutting themes such as anti-corruption reforms, successes in engaging citizens in democracy, and twenty-first century models of governance. In addition, participants learned how successful innovations in global health, disaster management, and social justice are used to solve pressing public policy issues.
