WORKSHOP: Innovations in times of great disruptions

Innovation and transformation require knowledge, vision and insights that can penetrate existing markets and ensure sustainable growth.

We all have difficulty converting (new) knowledge into growth and new products, concepts and / or procedures.

The fragmented, sometimes small markets, low investments in intangible assets and promotion (pull) and the lack of digital knowledge and (too) old staff create a shortage of skills.

A more cooperative and open approach at local, regional, national and Euro-Mat level would help to create awareness and support among and with each other.

A critical element of innovation-driven growth is a well-functioning supply chain. Bringing out knowledge is essential to create a profitable playing field for our stakeholders and enable them to scale up quickly and grow and to dare to invest in each other.

Therefore, and certainly in these extreme troubled and disruptive times, we would like to invite you to add your much appreciated value, build and create together the workshop: “Innovations in times of great disruption”!

Under the inspiring leadership of Professor Nathan Furr, authority in this field and professor at INSEAD University in Paris.

Networking is central to the concept of sharing and exchange. Sharing best practice and discussing with peers, customers and suppliers, this will again become a very promising and exiting event.
