Annual Conference 2019



“R&D has to think Business”

Annual Conference 2019

16 - 17 May 2019, Gothenburg, Sweden


Welcome to the new role of R&D managers! R&D has to think business!

In order to create value, researchers need to understand the new ecosystem: how can they create value outside of the traditional value streams they have worked in?

This question is not new but the emergency is more pressing.

Today, researchers are exposed to a lot of new scientific approaches: the opportunity to add value to organisations is growing fast.

This Annual conference will focus on the person and function of a R&D manager as well as the future of R&D management.

Bring your experience and your questioning to Gothenburg. Let’s exchange between practionners and create the future together!

Issues addressed (non exhaustive list)

  • How to engrain business modelling capability into R&D processes?

  • What does the culture evolution in managing R&D mean for your R&D leaders?

  • What leadership approaches can help your teams in disruptive and break through environments?

    etc ....

At the end of DAY 1, participants will enjoy a visit of Volvo (EIRMA member):

The participants are invited to listen to presentations from Volvo Group managers on topics such as sustainable transport and new technologies (including a unique concept for autonomous, cab-less, electric vehicle for repetitive transport flows in ports, factory areas and logistic mega centres).
