On 27 September 2019, the second annual conference of the Bodensee Innovation Cluster will take place at Zeppelin University. As with the last annual conference, this year's annual conference will serve as a starting point and initiation of two further innovation circles, namely Lifelong Learning and Technology Acceptance as one joint innovation circle as well as Digital Sustainability Management as its counterpart. This year, we are once again able to welcome highly renowned speakers, who will provide a comprehensive insight into the topics named above.
The innovation circle "Lifelong Learning and Technology Acceptance" focuses on the complexity of implementing new technologies and the need for constant learning within an organisation. This represents a challenge for companies, as it showcases being disruptive, nurturing one’s employees and fostering their intrinsic motivation to learn and, in addition, provides them with modern further training options. Although there is a noticeable easing of work processes, on the other hand there is an increased demand for technology-related skilled workers. Thanks to these far-reaching developments, companies see a need for intensive adaptation and education at all levels of the organisation.
The innovation circle "Digital Sustainability Management” focuses on the digitalisation of CSR and environmental management. They use solutions that, for example, ensure compliance with environmental regulations that manage the evaluation of a suppliers' social performance or collect non-financial information for their own reporting. Other examples cited by the companies range from the carbon-neutral mobility of employees to group-wide virtual coordination on social commitment to the digital evaluation of product design in the life cycle concept.
As in the “Cybersecurity" innovation circle, the format will be workshop-oriented and participants will be given the opportunity to discuss current issues in their field and exchange experience.
