The evolution on a world or worldwide level drive our companies to integrate the challenges of our era: competition with countries with low cost wages, pressure on raw materials necessary evolution towards the choice of energy sources, slower population growth, aging and multi-cultural populations in Europe, the rise of the new generations and new values (quality of life, solidarity, integrity,competition of talents,

The key to the success of a company, in this environment, is to be and to stay competitive through costs (wages, purchases and processes...) and / or with innovative products of a high value (technical, emotional) or through singular propositions!

How should companies go about an innovation at 360°, technologies, creativity, entrepreneurial culture, values, networks?

Which are the companies and exemplary achievements? And how do they manage? (private sector and non-profit).

What is the role of the leadership and which talents are required to pilot these innovations?
