Hybrid Zone X

Hybrid Zone X (HzX) is a creative and combinatorial exchange at the interface of research, education and business.

Today’s most compelling ideas are likely to emerge from people who are:

* independent, yet connected
* playful, yet rigorous
* curious, yet productive
HzX seeds compelling ideas by convening such people. They live with an openness to experience and engage the world by observing, questioning and experimenting. They shape the 21st century through their creative productivity as scientists, technologists, entrepreneurs, artists, educators and CEOs. We hand-pick these contributors from increasingly interrelated fields to represent an unconventionally wide range of thinking styles for an HzX Exchange (held twice yearly in November and May).
The theme for each of our HzX Exchanges keys off of the latest work of a leading academic in one of WID’s eight research areas. The day-long exploration results in a collectively authored hybrid publication highlighting linkages, complexities, societal ramifications and opportunities of the theme.
