The core programme for the R&D Management Conference is structured around a series of online track sessions. Tracks may be academically focused, practice relevant, or a mix of both. Tracks are inspired by this year's theme "Innovation in an Era of Disruption" and may include parallel tracks, workshops, meet the editor sessions, and poster sessions. Our full list of  tracks can be seen below. 

We also look forward to Keynote Speakers including Professor Ellen Enkel, Nasa's Steve Rader and Industry contributors. 

This year's conference will be the first time that the R&D community will get the opportunity to all see each other again and meet as a community and we want to ensure this is a warm, friendly and creative experience. The full programme and virtual social events will be confirmed soon.
