iNNOVATIONS Congress: Successful via innovation

Innovations are our future

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower"

(Steve Jobs)

What does the future hold? This question quickly presents itself when you consider the pace of technological advances in our rapidly changing world. Innovation is regarded as the most important driver for the long-term success of businesses and thus as a driver for the growth of tomorrow.

The Innovations Congress, under the motto "successful via innovation - how to manage innovation", provides information around innovation management. Among other things, this means open innovation will also be one of the topics: away from conservative idea generation, to open and efficient innovation processes.
