inNOWvate 2019

Where the importance of innovation is clear to everyone, the ‘how’ is often much more complicated. Research shows that most innovations at start-ups were devised by people who worked an average of 9 meters apart in a room. For innovation it is therefore essential to get in touch with the right people, both acquaintances and strangers.

But what innovations are there in the field of supply chain management? And how do you apply these innovations in practice? The answers to these and other questions will be given during the second edition of the inNOWvate Supply Chain event on 22 May at De Rijtuigenloods venue in the Dutch city of Amersfoort.
