R&D Management Conference 2023

Mastering the successful transformation towards a resilient R&D

23. Jun 2023

Atlas Design Offices, München


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.

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.

What to expect 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?

Together with other top decision makers and executives from R&D, we want to give impulses, discuss intensively and provide answers to the pressing questions about the future of R&D. The conference language of the R&D Management Conference 2023 is English.

Who will you meet at the R&D Management Conference?

Our conference is aimed at international top-level executives and decision makers from R&D as well as related key functions in high-technology industries, such as automotive, commercial/rail vehicles, aerospace/defense, mechanical/plant engineering, (consumer) electronics, telecommunications, IT and software, energy/utilities, and Medtech.
