’What’s the Greatest Innovation?’ is a survey of key thinkers in science, technology and medicine, conducted by spiked in collaboration with the research-based pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Each contributor was asked to identify what they see as the greatest innovation in their field. More than a hundred experts and authorities, including half-a-dozen Nobel laureates, have responded. At this event, some of them take part in a panel debate about the survey, which will roll on spiked throughout May and June.
The aim of the online survey and the event is to highlight some of the many gains of human ingenuity, and to put the current discussion of innovation into a historical context.
