Advisory Board Sustainable Innovation Day

During Sustainable Innovation Day we will be sharing knowledge and inspiration through keynote presentations, practical cases and workshops. Together with the Advisory Board we are looking for interesting, educational and enjoyable practical cases that match with the theme, focused on the transition to more sustainable business operations within the (high tech) industry. Do you have a suggestion for an interesting practical case, practical tips, themes or clear vision? Or are there experiences outside of the industry but match the theme?
Check our requirements and submit your suggestion before November 8.
