Supply chains: How can supply chains be made more resilient?

Join us to discuss how to deal with changing supply chains and how to create stable supply chains in the long term. What measures and strategies are required to be able to react flexibly to unforeseeable events and disruptions? What steps need to be taken to minimize dependencies within supply chains? What is the role of collaboration between companies, suppliers and other supply chain actors in designing resilient structures? Contribute your experiences and perspectives and let's develop ideas for more resilient supply chains together.

How can companies respond to changing working conditions?

In an era of permanent change and uncertainty, organizations face major challenges. Which leadership competencies are required to guide teams safely through these turbulent times? Which work models fit this new environment? What transition will result from the advent and further development of artificial intelligence (AI) in companies? Together, we'll explore key aspects to design resilient organizations that best address constant change and uncertainty.

Disruption vs. regulation: Can innovation be imposed by the state?

Share your views on how companies can respond agilely to unforeseen disruptions and still remain successful. How can collaboration between companies, research institutions, government and regulators be improved to drive innovative solutions faster and overcome bureaucratic hurdles? What best practices and experiences already exist in terms of successful innovation in regulated industries and how can they be transferred to other areas?
