R&D Management Conference 2021

Programme & Events

 

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 we want to ensure this is a warm, friendly and creative experience. Inspired by this year's theme "Innovation in an Era of Disruption" we look forward to a busy online programme comprising academically focused and practice relevant tracks, workshops and plenaries. 

If you need some time out from this busy programme of events you are welcome to join our Zen Room where you can browse the videos to relax with some Qi Gong, Meditation or Yoga. It’s open right through both days so please do take advantage.

The full conference programme is offered at the bottom of this page and you can watch the video below to get an idea of how our first virual conference will run.
