Moving into the next generation of external search and partnership for long and short term technology growth

In a fast-paced world where new technologies come to light every day, companies have to fight for the position of technology leader. That is why external innovation and strategic partnership play a key role in company growth. Companies need specific scouting strategies and intelligent technology investment plans. Well managed external partnering will lead to an increase of quality technology, expansion of the product portfolio and discovery of new business models and markets. Whether this is done through an open innovation platform, separate corporate venturing subsidiary or establishing joint ventures, it is driving global business forward.

This summit brings together leading innovation, R&D and corporate venturing executives from top companies and a cross section of industries. We offer an excellent mix of strategic insight, product case studies and interactive panels to help your company grow technology and establish meaningful and successful partnerships.

CRISTAL GLOBAL

General Manager for R&D and Technical Sales Services

The conference is well organised, right duration, right number of attendees. It is coherent, topic focused and allows people from different industries to share common concerns and solutions.

ASTRAZENECA

Diversity Director Research & Development

The presentations were of very high quality and the atmosphere was one of inclusion rather than competition. The openness with which information was exchanged was unusual and this was critical to the effectiveness of the conference. The audience had as much to contribute as the presenters and it was a refreshing change that they were not only 'talked at' but 'listened to'.

BARILLA

Product Development Director - Soft Categories

It’s a nice way to become more open. And being open is a promise for innovation
