R&D Innovation Excellence Summit
Corporate Parity held their first ever R&D Innovation Excellence Summit, which took place in Amsterdam, Netherlands on the 14th & 15th of April, 2016. The event gathered together senior level managers across the globe to listen to key speakers coming from leading cross-industry companies. The 2-day event brought together a large crowd of innovation managers, R&D Vice-Presidents, Chief Innovation Officers, mainly from Europe, Middle East and North America.
Through case study presentations, workshops and panel discussions the event provided an interactive platform to discuss very interesting topics such as Measuring the Effectiveness of R&D, Surviving Disruption, How to create a Roadmap for a Digital Future, Setting up Drivers for Innovation, Managing Global R&D for Breakthrough Innovation, Involving Suppliers in R&D Innovation etc.
Amsterdam – the excellent location
Amsterdam was an excellent location and the service from the hotel was just awesome. The hotel provided comfortable and clean sleeping rooms and delicious meals during the coffee breaks, lunch and networking dinner.
Atmosphere where all participants share their ideas and opinions
The chairman of the event, Kevin McFarthing, Founder at Innovation Fixer Ltd did a good job in making the event highly interactive by creating an atmosphere where all participants could freely share their ideas and opinions.
Corporate Parity would like to thank everyone that helped in diverse ways to make the event a success including our esteemed chairperson, speakers and all participants for their attendance. We are confident that the event was highly informative and met your expectations.

Return on R&D investment and the impact of R&D spending on long-term growth and competitiveness is dependent on the existence of sound R&D management. This creates the necessary transparency and facilitates the decision-making
process that allows a company to constantly optimise its portfolio of R&D projects and to adapt it to changing technology, market and competition conditions in time – i.e. to manage risks and maximise its value creation potential.
This summit aims to confront R&D in its modern sense. Companies are now moving away from the perception that R&D is simply the department that makes things happen. They are embedding R&D into the core of the business; involving it in decision making; and putting a lot of effort into aligning R&D with the business strategy. It is for this reason that we are addressing the areas around R&D that do affect its outcome and, if improved, can enhance its activities thus making it more efficient and profitable.
