    How can collaborative innovation help fill the gaps of what we know and don’t know relative to human health and performance? How about through a workshop focused on strategies and best practices? On January 19, 2011 the 1st NHHPC Workshop will address collaborative innovation strategies and best practices through various keynote presentations. Four speakers have been confirmed to date. Dr. Karim Lakhani from Harvard Business School will kick-off the workshop with IdeasCloud, an introduction to open innovation. Pascal Finette, Director of Mozilla Labs, will follow with Lessons from Mozilla – lessons learned, mistakes made, and how they came to be one of the (accidental) poster children of Open Innovation. The morning session will conclude with a panel discussion, moderated by Bev Godwin from the GSA, on how to run an effective challenge through open innovation platforms and will feature various NHHPC members. In the afternoon, the Cazneau Group will discuss their process for impact investment where they bring diverse players together to accelerate solutions to complex healthcare challenges, and General Mills will present on the topic - Putting It All Together in a Corporate Setting. The workshop will conclude with a breakout session where members can organize around similar projects, services or core capabilities.
