On innovation and innovative practices in society and business
Guglielmo Marconi, (1874-1937) was an Italian inventor, best known for his development of a practical radiotelegraph system, which evolved into what many would today know as radio. Most of the technical ingredients of the wireless telegraph were known at the time; Marconi’s genius was to combine existing technology in a unique and innovative way. He shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun.
The Guglielmo Marconi Lecture focuses on innovation and creativity.
