R&D Management Conference 2023


About the event

“Mastering the Successful Transformation Towards a Resilient R&D”

Enterprises face multiple pressures from outside to significantly transform itself. Decarbonization and the shift towards sustainability, even enforced by ESG (environmental, social, governmental) criteria from capital markets, drives multiple technological options into the future portfolios and thus creates high portfolio complexity.

The search for the best talents pushes new work models and spreads the site footprint to wherever talent is available. Globalization challenges have raised the need to rethink supply chains in terms if their robustness and their sustainability. New legislations push the need for a faster technological transition or enforce the rethinking of site decisions in the context of local content. Currently big markets might be a future risk and ask for a more resilient and balanced market portfolio.Those dynamic shifts accumulated ask more than ever for a transformation of current R&D setups in almost every aspect.

What to epect at our R&D Management Conference?

At our R&D management conference we want to share and discuss practices for a successful transformation:

  • How are all those shifts influencing the organization and its setup?
  • What is the impact on product and service development?
  • What transformational patterns do we observe?
  • How to enable the R&D to handle the increasing technological, portfolio, site, supply chain, and legislation complexity?
  • How to prepare the R&D to be “weather-proof” and resilient for whatever scenario?
  • How to enable a rapid and successful transformation?
