Today marks the launch of Harvard University’s Innovation Lab, or i-lab, in Boston. In the press release, Harvard President Drew Faust describes it as “a bridge between imagination and implementation,” evoking Lincoln Center Institute (LCI’s) concept of the ICI Continuum (Imagination –> Creativity –> Innovation). So what does this new institution, another example of higher education’s recent efforts to promote these capacities, actually look like?

Lincoln Center Institute (LCI) believes, as we state in Findings of the Imagination Conversations, that hands-on projects and real-world challenges ignite students’ imaginations. The nonprofit Entrepreneurs’ Organization understands this, too. It produces the annual Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA), which encourage young people to do innovative work. The 2011 GSEA Global Finals will take place at the New York Stock Exchange on November 17-19, as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The Jefferson Innovation Summit, hosted by the Batten Institute, part of the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, happened in Charlottesville on October 11 and 12, and although it was separated from Lincoln Center Institute’s (LCI’s) Imagination Summit by almost three months, the two events are clearly linked by their respective topics. In large measure, the purpose of both was, as Jefferson’s website puts it, to bring together “the brightest minds in business, government, academia, media, and the arts to talk about creating and sustaining a society of entrepreneurs and innovators.” And both summits were a success.

Steve Jobs’s death on October 5 has sparked a public conversation about the personal qualities that enabled his astounding innovations and successes. Gene Pinder, writing for the North Carolina-based News and Observer, singles out one factor: Jobs “joined his love for the humanities and art with steely analytical thinking and discipline. Both served him well, and it should remind us all that one without the other fails to maximize the highest levels of human potential.” (For more on this point, see Walter Isaacson’s recent New York Times opinion piece.)
