The Global Energy Prize annually honors outstanding achievements in energy research and technology from around the world that are helping address the world’s various and pressing energy challenges.

The Global Energy Prize will help the Rugrids-Electro participants to learn how to think “out-of-the-box”

On October 19th in the framework of the 5th Rugrids-Electro forum the  “Global Energy”   Non-profit Partnership will hold an interactive session «Think differently: success stories of the Global Energy Prize laureates”.  The session’s unusual format is aimed at involving the Rugrids-Electro participants into the world of creativity; it also reveals the Prize laureates from a different angle.

What to expect from the interactive session? Only vivid impressions and practical advice which will help to make a step from an automatic to creative thinking. The Global Energy Prize laureates made this step some time ago and it proved to be the right one. It was unconventional thinking that drew them closer to success. It took quite a long time for them to cope with difficulties and finally turn their idea into innovation. President of the “Global Energy” Non-profit Partnership Igor Lobovsky will tell in details the laureates' stories.

The ability to think “out-of-the-box” made it possible for the Prize laureates Jayant Baliga, Shuji Nakamura, Arthur Rosenfeld, Boris Katorgin and Rodney John Allam to literally change the world while staying true to themselves. The session's guests will learn some little known facts from the scientists’ biographies and their personal traits.
Aside from the Prize laureates’ success stories the session includes a theoretical part. This part covers the following aspects: why creativity is the XXI century competence, how to avoid automatic thinking, what is the difference between convergent thinking and divergent thinking.

The participants will have an opportunity to solidify their new knowledge during the practical part of the session. The training includes individual and group exercises united by the same goal – to learn think “out-of-the-box” and become successful.
