Neumann Society launches Hunnovators conference
Neumann Society announced that it will hold its first large-scale international conference, entitled the “Hunnovators” tomorrow in San Francisco, at the historic Fort Mason General's Mansion, marking the society’s first annual gathering for Hungarian-American innovators and their friends living in the Bay Area or elsewhere in the United States of America.
“Neumann Society, a charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by a group of Hungarian-born innovators in Silicon Valley, is launching a transatlantic community of game-changing, mission-driven innovators from all disciplines to shape our future together. With their Hunnovators program, they are following in the footsteps of renowned U.S. innovators of Hungarian descent such as mathematician and “father of the computer” John von Neumann, Rubik’s cube inventor Ernő Rubik, and presentation powerhouse Prezi CEO Péter Árvai.” the press release said.
Mel Horwitch, dean and university professor at CEU Business School is scheduled to give an academic address as one of the keynote speakers. Horwitch will discuss the importance of innovation in Central Eastern Europe and how the School is nurturing a newly fashioned management education institute in Budapest based on value creation. He will also show how CEU Business School helps upgrade transatlantic relations via new teaching and learning methods, which emphasize innovation and entrepreneurship. In the afternoon, he will also facilitate an academic workshop, entitled “Awakening new generations: education, scholarship and mentoring in a transatlantic academic context.”
