4th Annual R&D Process Excellence Summit

This year the Vonlanthen Group of Companies will be presenting a conference that includes a multitude of different subjects within the field of R&D, to address maintaining optimal performance and innovation in a rapidly-changing environment. We will be discussing how we maintain openness, without leaving ourselves exposed in R&D cooperative activities: The art of roadmapping to construct a strategic and pragmatic approach to R&D development and using our portfolio to maximise and accelerate projects from start to finish; and new techniques for meeting R&D metric objectives despite declining productivity. Our panel will be addressing these critical issues and much more over the two days to drive new concepts and new ways of thinking among a consortium of different companies and people in the field of R&D.

We hope to see you in Barcelona this coming June 2017!
