    Keeping Innovation Alive (E3): The Road Ahead


    In the third episode of our popular NS Roundtable series, Keeping Innovation Aliveinnovation executives from Eaton, Nokia and OMRON Healthcare share their thoughts on what corporate innovation will likely look like in the future. 

    During this hour-long event, we challenge our three panelists (and our attendees) to view innovation through both a short-term and long-term lens: What problems are we solving this week? What problems will we be solving in 2021? What about in 2030... and beyond?
