Technology and Innovation Management Conference

What is new in technology and innovation management, how do I implement innovations and how do others manage? Just under 150 managing directors, development managers and technology and innovation managers meet at our annual TIM conference for a comprehensive exchange of ideas. Speakers from industry and science report on their experiences and recipes for success.

Industrial Benchmarking

What makes companies successful, and how can I learn from them? The aim of our benchmarking is to identify successful and practice-oriented solutions in the field of technology and innovation management in order to benefit from them. To identify best practices, we conduct regular screenings in the form of an international empirical study. The benchmarking will be accompanied by a visit and the award of the Top 5 Best-Practice Companies. The study results will be presented at the closing event.


Do you know your innovation-readiness level? We conduct the Quick Check with you and analyze the strengths and fields of action of your company. The relevant criteria were developed on the basis of the benchmarking and analyses of the top 5 best-practice companies and have already been successfully applied on several occasions. At the end of the audit, we jointly develop initial measures and show how you can achieve your innovation goals.
