RIPE: Making It Happen

Applied Research is a vital component of business development and prosperity in the Okanagan Valley.  New ideas, new technologies and new partnerships, foster continued growth and open new business opportunities.

This keynote will identify some of the deployment challenges that we face, with the intent of provoking ideas, solutions and collective thinking of the 2019 RIPE attendees.

RIPE.  Research. Innovation. Partnerships. Expo.

Spam’s Labyrinth: Eating Right in a Wicked World

Social scientists talk about wicked problems, which are defined by contradictory and incomplete information, changing or differing requirements for those who want them solved and for which solving one part generates new, different, problems. The idea of “eating right”—with the many scientific, cultural, ecological, and value-laden perspectives we bring to bear on it—is such a wicked problem. Rather than viewing this as a Labyrinth of Despair, we can see this as a cornucopia of opportunities for new kinds of science, research, and action.
