InterConnect Webinar Series #5 How to manage innovation across Europe - Orchestrating Innovation

The fifth webinar will be on the topic of Open Innovation, specifically about managing public-private innovation from early research to mission impact, across Europe. Frank Berkers and Virág Szijjártó (TNO) will be introducing and discussing related topics with Arnor Van Leemputten, from Th!nk E, and Maurits Butter, from TNO on Wednesday, July 21 at 2 pm (CEST).

 

 

About the webinar

More and more innovations are taking place in open innovation settings in which public and private organizations collaborate to create innovations that address societal missions. Different ways of organizing are visible in practice, from technical lab, campus, cluster, valley, field lab, living lab to innovation hubs.

In this webinar, we will discuss the essentials of the business models and approaches behind innovation hubs. Since 2014 TNO, the largest Dutch RTO, has been driving its strategic initiative called Orchestration Innovation. This has become an open education program and a community of innovation orchestrators, running several large scale public private innovation centers. In parallel, the European Commission has been supporting the development of (Digital) Innovation Hubs (DIH) and networks of DIHs.

We will discuss the management of networks of Digital Innovation Hubs with Maurits Butter, scientific lead on many DIH networks and advisor to the EC. Furthermore, we will also discuss the implementation of Orchestrating Innovation in the InterConnect.

 

 

Speakers

Frank Berkers (M) MSc is a senior scientist at TNO Strategic Business Analysis, where he is responsible for business modeling and value network analysis. He’s founded TNO’s strategic initiative Orchestrating Innovation, which trains TNO’s leaders of large open societal impact focused innovation hubs. He also developed several methods to support collaborative business modeling and analysis, including the Value Case Methodology. He participated in over 600 project initiatives since 2008. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. degree on ‘strategic decision-making for business models. Frank holds a master’s degree in Econometrics/Operations Research from Maastricht University. Before joining TNO, he has held positions at ABN AMRO as marketing/consumer intelligence analyst and at market research agency SKIM as senior methodologist where he set up preferred supplierships with McKinsey and Monitor, in the field of computer-aided choice experiments.

 

 

Virag Szijjarto is a consultant at the Strategic Business Analysis department of TNO (the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research). She holds a master’s degree in Innovation Management from Erasmus University, Rotterdam School of Management. Currently she focuses on multi-stakeholder innovation projects, digitization and ICT innovation, challenges regarding large-scale data sharing initiatives and new business models for solutions in developing countries.

 

 

Maurits Butter (M) graduated from the faculty of chemical engineering at the Delft University of Technology. He started his career as an environmental consultant. In 1998 he joined TNO as senior advisor innovation policy. He is involved in the interface between technological innovation and policy, focusing on foresight studies and the non-technological aspects of technological innovation. He was the research leader for the TNO research program on “Renewal of Innovation” and now is an expert in the field of connecting forward looking information and policymaking. The EU approach of Policymaking 3.0 is one of its guiding principles. Today he participates in several high-profile forward-looking projects, where science, technology, and innovation developments are put into a societal framework and assessed for strategic and policy-related actions.

 

Arnor Van Leemputten has a master’s degree in Electronics and ICT Engineering Technology (Catholic University of Leuven, 2019) with specialization in Internet Computing. At Th!nk E Arnor is responsible for the development and implementation of the technical solutions and distinguishes himself with creative “out of the box” thinking. He has experience in several energy related projects which allowed him to grow his expertise in energy storage, vehicle to grid, energy communities, smart grids and software interoperability. Within Interconnect, he is work package leader and responsible for preparing, coordinating and monitoring of the large scale demonstration sites. He combines the position at Th!nk E with a position at the University of Leuven where he is responsible for designing the curriculum for future software engineers and enabling the transition towards online education. This experience at the university enables him to explain complex problems in a clear manner. He also provides expertise for students with master theses on energy innovation.
