This is one in a series of posts from Innovation Embassy initiatives while preparing for the Innovation Embassy launch. In these posts, we show actions, methods and tools to create the hottest global innovation network.

A great deal of what Innovation Embassy is about is what happens when 20.000 eyes combine effort – and not just a team of 20.

Back in late 2013, a small girl was killed infront of her mother by a truck turning right who could not see her. These are terrible accidents that should never happen.

Instead of not doing anything, Erik Micheelsen invited Denmark to come up with ideas to suggest to polititians and investors. People and professionals from all walks of life answered this call. The initiative was partnered with national television TV2, the biggest newspaper then MetroXpress and Volvo Trucks.
