With plenty of fanfare and birthday wishes from all over the world, Techna was officially launched yesterday on November 9th, 2011.

Thanks to all our guests who attended the event, especially those who flew in to join us.  The energy and enthusiasm expressed by all was infectious.  We look forward to turning the Techna Hypothesis into the Techna Method.

In his talk, Techna Director Dr David Jaffray showed a video by Steven Johnson, which illustrates the role of Techna as a engine of creativity, as a space where – in the words of Johnson – “ideas could mingle and swap”.
