The Kreyon Workshop

Event Category: 

The first Kreyon Workshop addresses the dynamics of novelties – a fundamental factor in the evolution of human societies, biological systems and technology – with the aim to unfold and quantify the underlying mechanisms through which creativity emerges and innovations diffuse, compete and stabilize.

This workshop will be the opportunity for talks and discussions about ongoing empirical and theoretical work relevant to creativity, novelties and innovation dynamics.

Bringing together perspectives from physics, mathematics, anthropology, linguistics and musicology, the workshop aims at providing an interdisciplinary setting to unveil and quantify the complex ecology around creativity and innovation, especially for sectors, like education, learning, research, social challenges, where creativity and innovation are much needed fuels.

The Workshop is organized by the Kreyon Project, funded by the John Templeton Foundation and supported by Sapienza University of Rome, ISI Foundation and CNR-Institute for Complex Systems.
