03: Creating the Future: How to Reinvent Innovation Processes

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Technological developments and changes in society require ever more rapid reactions. In the future, innovative processes and ecosystems will be strongly influenced by digitization. At the same time, innovative business models are gaining traction. On the one hand this creates new opportunities for collaborative brainstorming; on the other, enterprises become more transparent by opening up towards the outside. In this breakout session we will discuss how enterprises can meet these challenges and actively shape the change.
