Innovation talks

In March, Engage Rotterdam will host 5 researchers from the DESMA Network. The theme of the event is “Innovating in Transition”. The research fellows will share two distinct perspectives on the topic:

Inside-out: How organisations innovate when a fundamental transition towards user or service centricity is required. Examples from Philips and Volvo.

Outside-in: Barriers to innovation. How to support organizations to absorb, digest and implement. Examples from Politecnico di Milano and Future Concept Lab.

The keynotes will be followed by a panel discussion led by Veronica  from Living Labs Global where the audience will be invited to actively contribute to the conversation.
