Abstract: The new millennium presents humanity with unprecedented challenges: managing an increasingly complex and turbulent global economy; resolving international conflicts and the rise of global terror; responding to global climate change and environmental sustainability challenges; solving global poverty; and dealing with the complex array of issues raised by an ever growing population, etc. In this context, many of our traditional paradigms and frameworks must be reinvented and revamped. Innovation is the key to answering these challenges. 'Fostering innovation in all aspects of human endeavour is possibly one of the most important tasks of our age'. At the same time, new technologies, new levels of global exchanges, and a new level in human understanding are offering hitherto unreachable opportunities for innovation.
