WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR COURSE

While the 20th century was the age of incremental innovation, in the 21st century we step into the era of exponential innovations. We could also say that we can witness parallel Gutenberg moments, as dozens of technologies are evolving at an accelerating pace: 3D printing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, autonomous vehicles, drones, robotics, blockchain, quantum computing, genetics, energy production and storage, biotechnology.

If we use the 20th century approach, we are doomed to failure. We need the skills to set our research, development and innovation activities in the right direction. Fortunately, development is also fast in this area and the methods we can use to acquire the required skills are now available.

Our training is supported by JuridEco Zrt.

THE AIM OF THE COURSE

The aim of the course is to prepare the innovation leaders to develop their own research, development and innovation activities in accordance with the exponential development of technology, thereby ensuring the organization’s future and business sustainability.

In addition to the practical knowledge transfer, the course also aims to stimulate cooperation between the actors in the region, so we place great emphasis on introducing the concept of open innovation and the use in practice. This is also indispensable for the region to be able to define itself in the long term and to formulate a mutually agreed and supported vision.

FIRST TEACHING DAY OF OUR TRAINING: 20 September 2019 (Friday)
