This year's theme: Making Innovation Real - with Citizen Lab, Circular Lab, Business Lab and Learn Lab

Let's share, learn and co-create, bridging our shared experiences and knowledge through a series of learning sessions, brain breaks, innovation classes and much more. On stage we welcome the "doers" from some of our 50+ member organizations together with specially invited guests from the global innovation ecosystem that will share their insights and knowledge about "making innovation real". This is a unique opportunity to take part of diverse perspectives, angles and approaches and bring your own thoughts to the table.

Action-Oriented Learning

Innovation Pioneers Summit is a learning platform for innovation leaders and learners to develop and share methods, processes, tools and insights together. All learnings from the summit will be documented and shared with all participants and members, so that they can be also be used and taken into action within your own organization.


The  Innovation Classes of 2019

Innovation is the art of coming up with a new idea, product or  service, and then also bringing it out to the market. To create something new, we  also need to be open to learning new things. That's why the class room is an important pillar at our summit.

During the two days, we will split up into four innovation classes led by industry-leading representatives from our members and partners for thematic learning sessions.

Each participant will be able to take part in two of our four innovation classes, one per day.

Learning sessions

Society 3.0

The modern Interdependent Economy in Society3.0 needs new, good ideas and initiatives. New concepts and innovations arise by unexpected, but relevant collaboration between communities of people. How and where do we create this new communal social economic value? What economic models will we use and how does the new networked organization work? Is there a Serendipity Machine, to make the unexpected connections visible? And if so, what role does it play in these decentralized network structures?

In his presentation Ronald will address these topics and share his experiences in using serendipitous platforms in his disruptive co-work concept Seats2meet.com, a chain of over 200 co-work (corporate) centers in 29 countries, using a virtual AI Serendipity Machine, which transforms these locations into relevant work- and meeting spaces by serendipitously connecting their communities of professionals.
