About Sustainable Innovation Day

Theme 2023

Innovations for impact! – Impact for innovations!

Our world faces many challenges caused by demographic change, urbanization, climate change and resource scarcity. With the Green Deal, Europe shows that it wants to tackle the climate and energy crisis together at an accelerated pace. Also the sense of urgency of organizations itself to become more sustainable and create impact drive the industrial transformation.

Technological innovations are the pieces of the puzzle that are needed to transform the industrial sector and have an impact on major societal challenges. But how do we get to the next step? How do we ensure that new and existing technological innovations really make an impact? One thing is certain: collaboration is crucial. Innovation takes place in ecosystems: clusters of organizations, knowledge institutes and government that work together to develop knowledge and develop innovations that make an impact. The key is: less abundance through parallel and competitive developments & research and gaining competitive advantage by eco-system thinking. And finding new impact-areas for existing innovations and technology as well as developing new innovations and technology  that make an impact.

During Sustainable Innovation Day we will be sharing visions and best practices on:

  • Technology and innovation for impact
  • Innovation eco-systems – Regulations – Impact investments
  • Human Factor – War for Talent – Sustainable Employability – Inspirational Leadership
