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.

I have enjoyed the meeting and was in fact very positively surprised. It was very good to get this cross-industry feedback and I took back quite a few refreshing ideas which are worthwhile to follow up. This was definitely no waste of time and I will look forward to E.N.G.’s next meeting.
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.
Rich and vibrant conference, with an excellent mix of speakers from SME, mid-sized, and large companies.
