Why You Should Attend

DIGITAL WEEK - 5th Annual R&D Performance Management

Our Digital Week Format

We recognise that in today’s worlds our clients need information delivered in a different way; one that recognises that fluid working hours and flexible working environments are the “new normal”. Our DIGITAL WEEK FORMAT is designed to compliment this new way of working by delivering three hours of highly focused, practitioner drive content per day, spread across your working week through our innovative Live+ online streaming platform.

Event Focus

By attending this marcus evans pan-European and cross-industry conference for controllers and R&D professionals, you will be able to discuss how to get the most out of your investment; you will be able to benchmark how others are doing valuations and project prioritisation and discuss the R&D finance, more technical aspects, as well as the important strategic question of looking beyond typical project metrics to assess the economic value of knowledge generated by R&D. You will be able to explore the impact of external financing or partnering on how you manage your portfolio. The case studies will be practical and the discussions open and interactive for maximum learning and knowledge sharing.

In the current, fast-changing environment, companies must prioritise and avoid wasteful R&D investments. R&D controllers have to learn how to work well with innovation managers for better results, not least of which is how to ensure you get the most benefit out of portfolios and overcome bottlenecks in the process. Having the right capabilities, the right toolbox, and the right processes in place is crucial if R&D performance management is to make a difference.

marcus evans Live+

Our passion is connecting people through our events; we firmly believe a virtual event experience should be no different. Our Live+ content platform will of course give you access to all the presentations as they happen and beyond, but we have to do much better than that! Our focus is on unlocking the incredible knowledge, experience and value within our entire event delegation, not just our world class speakers. That is why our Live + platform is loaded with features to ensure you are able to fully participate.
