This is a selection of my keynotes, talks, interviews and lectures on #NetworkThinking #TechTalent #SmartCities and more.  I know you and your audience will enjoy our interaction. And this is why:

Why you?

To succeed in today’s network economy leaders must know how to work in networks and communities. My passion is to inspire you how to embrace this change. Does your company, city or country needs more thought leadership to grow?

If so, the Network Thinking is your way to foster innovation, entrepreneurial talent and help unleash growth. Network Thinking breaks silos and turns managers into leaders who can  communicate and collaborate across industries, entrepreneurial firms and governments.

Why me?

Born in Poland, I am the World Economic Forum Digital Leader who lived in 6 countries and speaks 5 languages.

I convey a powerful message: every business, city or country must embrace the digital future. I have done it myself and changed the world around me. A scientist turned entrepreneur and global businesswoman, I chair the group of High-Level Advisors to European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation. As a Digital Leader of the World Economic Forum, I was often invited to give keynotes around the world. Today, Financial Times features me as a woman changing the tech world.

WIRE Conference for European Regions, Innsbruck 2018

Keynote briefing

To increase productivity and create value, businesses and governments need to innovate. But how innovation is created? And how can entire regions, countries and continents innovate in a fast changing world where old economies have broken down? Dr. Tataj proposes a replicable model for innovation based on a concept of an entrepreneurship-driven Knowledge Triangle: a coordinated network of research institutes, universities and businesses. Analyzing networking innovation models in Europe, the United States and China, her book ‘Innovation and Entrepreneurship A Growth Model for Europe Beyond the Crisis’ is the first comprehensive attempt to explain a new model of collaborative networks designed to boost growth in Europe known as Knowledge and Innovation Communities. Launched by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, the KICs have been recognized as some of the most daring policy experiments. Based on her research and hands-on experience at the EIT founding Board, Dr. Tataj presents a systematic approach how innovation hubs emerge attracting talent, knowledge and funding or face away suffering from brain drain. Anchored in the theory of the Network Society, she offers a methodology how to integrate research, education, innovation and entrepreneurship – the four pillars of the innovation economy. Dr. Tataj explains complex processes in a simple way and offers ‘Network Thinking’ as a toolbox how to overcome the silos of business and academia and transform post-industrial areas into vibrant innovation districts in large or mid-size cities. In the Preface to Dr. Tataj’s book, Professor Manuel Castells, the Winner of the Holberg Prize 2012, writes: “This is a fundamental, innovative book on innovation that will reshape the way we think about innovation and may yield the most needed policy lessons for a new growth model in the aftermath of the economic crisis.”
