On November 6 and 7, another edition of the Cross Industry Innovation Summit took place in Houston, Texas.

Pedro Moneo, CEO of Opinno, moderated a discussion about good practices for harvesting innovation and how to break down obstacles in organizations.

The summit brought together top innovation executives from the world's leading institutions to discuss innovation in various industries. Most industries work at the forefront of technological standards and are constantly looking for new technologies to make operations simpler, more innovative, safer and more profitable.

A major problem in several industries is that engineers and scientists are usually exposed only to like-minded people. It is this mentality that can prevent innovation and the maturation of "ready-to-use" ideas. Finding innovative solutions to challenges often requires venturing into different ways of thinking to bring new added value.

This event connected and discussed common challenges, comparing innovations, discussing analogies along various industry lines, and then provided a platform for participants to explore solutions and identify new strategies through future technology collaboration.
