Asia NGO Innovation Summit 2012

Intel’s ongoing efforts to drive innovation, productivity and growth in the Asia Pacific region all fall under the philosophy that big challenges cannot be solved alone. This is why Intel strives to build self-sustaining networks that are comprised of governments, NGOs and industry stakeholders throughout the region.

The Asia NGO Innovation Summit is one example of the company’s efforts to catalyze collaboration between the various sectors, so that such relationships can make our communities better places to live, work and learn. In line with this thinking, Intel co-hosted the Asia NGO Innovation Summit 2012 in Seoul, Korea, which saw 100 delegates attend from 16 countries. The summit brought together thought leaders in social innovation from across Asia Pacific to engage in collaborative discussions around initiatives that are enabling social and economic transformation in the region.

Similar to the previous year’s summit, the two main themes of discussion this year continues to be around social innovation and capacity building in the region. The summit highlighted the role that NGOs play in positive social change and innovation throughout the region while reinforcing the need to fuel innovation through the sharing of knowledge, technology and resources.
