Event description
A celebration of the United Nations World Creativity & Innovation Day.

About this Event

To enhance creativity and to develop innovation, individuals in large organisations often have to immerse themselves in underground organisational activities that have no formal support and/or are otherwise rejected by the leadership of the organisation.

Underground research is important for the management of the firm for the following reasons:

it emerges as a potential link between individual creativity and formal innovation. Companies should accept covert research as a ‘biotope' for actively creative people

it highlights a set of self-regulating mechanisms in corporate organisations and how creative employees may attempt to bridge corporate paradoxes

underground research and development and other underground activities play an essential role in the competence building process of the organisation

employees who develop projects in the underground have a high degree of organizational identification which is important for innovation performance and project acceleration

Despite its contribution to business performance and economic growth, underground creativity and innovation is an underexplored area of research and requires further investigation, so please join in contributing to the discussion and exploration of underground creativity and innovation focused research.

This event is free and open to all. Once registered, you will receive a link to join the event in April.


United Nations World Creativity & Innovation Day

There may be no universal understanding of creativity. The concept is open to interpretation from artistic expression to problem-solving in the context of economic, social and sustainable development. Therefore, the United Nations designated 21 April as World Creativity and Innovation Day to raise the awareness of the role of creativity and innovation in all aspects of human development.

Wealth of Nations

Creativity and innovation, at both the individual and group levels, have become the true wealth of nations in the 21st century, according to the findings of the special edition of the Creative Economy Report "Widening local development pathways", co-published by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) through the UN Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC).
