Innovation in an Era of Disruption


We are very excited to be hosting the R&D Management Conference 2021 which will be held online from Tuesday 6th-Thursday 8th July, 2021. The theme of this conference is Innovation in an Era of Disruption.

The global Covid-19 crisis has made many companies realise that they cannot operate as they have in the past. Crises create opportunities for both economic, social and environmental innovation manifest in the growing sharing economy and areas related to sustainability, clean technologies, energy and methods of production. 

We are striving to make this year’s conference as immersive an experience as possible, providing ample opportunities for the community to share their research ideas, network and socialise together. The conference programme and an introduction to our virtual platform can be seen here
