Virtual, Live+

Why You Should Attend

Consumer-Focused R&D | R&D Performance Management

This dual-stream marcus evans event will explore how to deliver R&D value in a volatile environment, full of new risks and opportunities created by the COVID-19 crisis. Our unique cross-industry event will discuss how exploration and innovation can co-exist in the same ecosystem, how to make the most of enhanced collaboration during and after the crisis. We will explore how to drive projects in global R&D, how to run an 'entrepreneur' team that creates the future instead of following trends, and how to drive consumer-relevant sustainable innovation that supports economic recovery. By joining our unique conference, you will learn from and brainstorm with your peers, and move your thinking and practice of R&D strategy forward at a very critical time when the role of R&D is key to recovery.
