Rapid Technological Change: Turning a Threat into an Opportunity

Given the snow fall on 11 December, we have decided to reschedule this event. The new date is Monday 22 January 2018. If you have any questions regarding your registration or this new date, please contact Linda Nalis via lnalis@rsm.nl.

The location of this event is Science Centre of TU Delft, Mijnbouwstraat 120 2628 Delft.


Rapid technological change is often considered the biggest threat to global business. RSM and TU Delft are partnering in order to be able to better address the organisational challenges that come with these rapid technological advances. RSM and TU Delft believe that by sharing, merging and combining our expertise we can help organisations to turn this threat into an opportunity.

On 11 December we are proud to invite you to our first combined programme in the new teaching lab at the TU Delft campus. This afternoon 'masterclass' is the first result of a partnership of two universities offering their expertise to businesses affected by rapid technological change.  During a networking lunch and an inspiring afternoon programme we will provide you our latest insights towards digital innovation.

This event is fully booked. Are you interested in joining the event? Please send an email to lnalis@rsm.nl to be put on the waiting list.
