Summary

What excites companies most is the potential and promise of innovation – from product development to digital enablement to a fresh approach to working.  But where does innovation belong in a digital environment, where many new approaches are being driven not by companies themselves, but by technological development.

Powerful companies who foster the creation of innovative products and bring new solutions to their biggest challenges are the ones increasingly being able to manage sustainable economic growth.

Technology is transforming the way we do business. Innovation requires new ways of thinking about our products, our business and our partners.  The goal of this summit is to facilitate dialogue between innovation executives involved in product development, R&D, business development and marketing to find where does innovation belong in a digital environment, where many new approaches are being driven not by companies themselves, but by technological development.
