The Lemelson Foundation has joined a host of others who see the connections between their work and the ReVisioning Value conference in Portland, OR, March 7&8. The agenda of cross-sector collaboration and inventive thinking towards problem solving is perfectly aligned with their mission, and offers a chance to support an international event happening right in their backyard.
Lemelson Foundation ”improves lives through invention,” an apt statement for ReVV2011. With Henry Petroski joining us to talk about the role of the engineer in problem solving, the connection is elegant. “While science studies what is,” he says, “engineers create what doesn’t yet exist.”
We welcome the Lemelson Foundation as a partner in thinking about “what doesn’t exist yet” as we seek new solutions and strategies to our growing concerns, bringing talent, finance, and experience to the challenge.
We need designers, tinkerers, engineers, and inventors to gather together with us to invent a future we can all live with.
