VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

The sudden global pandemic has highlighted commercial, technical and social challenges. By breaking old rules, crises bring threats, but they can also create opportunities. Inevitably, due to the crisis companies have witnessed the disruption of their R&D life cycle. In order to remain competitive, R&D teams are seeking new ways of innovating.

Key players from across the R&D landscape will have a two-day discussion to address the current status of R&D management and future expectations. They will pursue questions on effective strategies for project and portfolio management in R&D during Covid-19, enabling digital platforms and ecosystems, maintaining process excellence and performance levels in R&D, nurturing an innovation culture within the R&D department and new tools for measuring success.

By assessing the present threats and prospects in R&D management, attendees will see what is on the horizon. Join us for a series of compelling case studies, engaging group discussions, and use networking opportunities to learn the latest on R&D management excellence. We look forward to meeting you online!
