Join Europe's Premier Innovation Conference!

Join us in Berlin for the 32nd ISPIM Innovation Conference.  Engage with fellow innovation professionals from academia, industry, consulting and the public sector in workshops, hot-topic discussions and discussion panels as well as during the great networking events at fantastic venues. 
Given the continued uncertainty surrounding the global pandemic, it is our intention to run the Berlin conference as a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual programmes. Should circumstances dictate that we are unable to hold the in-person programme, the conference will become a fully virtual event. All bookings will be valid for the virtual event with refunds provided for the difference in price.
Rest assured that the conference will be taking place no matter what so submissions should be made as normal. The deadline for submissions is still 29 January 2021.
3 days of thought-provoking innovation discussions
700 innovation professionals
50 countries represented
250+ presentations with innovation management insights from industry and research
25+ workshops to engage with
6 innovation tours in the Berlin area
