General information

HTSF SESSION WITH ROBERT BURGELMAN (STANFORD UNIVERSITY) AND GOTTFRIED VOSSEN (UNIVERSITY OF MUENSTER)

This is your chance to get inspired by keynote speakers from all over the world on business and entrepreneurship as part of the High Tech Small Firms (HTSF) conference. We invite you for the HTSF morning session with Robert Burgelman (Stanford University) and Gottfried Vossen (University of Muenster) on 27 May 2019.

Robert Burgelman – CORPORATE ONDERNEMERSCHAP

Robert Burgelman is known worldwide as an expert in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation management. He is Edmund W. Littlefield Professor of Management at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and he mainly studied the strategy defining processes that are involved in the way companies enter into new businesses and leave existing ones to ensure continuous customization. During his keynote, he will share knowledge and insights into successful strategies for innovation. He specifically discusses the topics intrapreneurship, corporate venturing and external development of innovation.

Gottfried Vossen – DATA SCIENCE

Gottfried Vossen, professor at the University of Muenster, gives a talk about data science. For several years now, the topic of big data has been ubiquitous, since everything we do meanwhile leaves a digital trace of data which can be collected, analyzed and used. The techniques from mathematics and computer science that are employed for that purpose have accelerated the area of Artificial Intelligence so much that it seems today that automation, machine learning and robotics can tap into any application area. Computing power is no longer a big investment; indeed, pricing converges towards zero. The cloud enables easy access to vastly unrestricted resources as well as to data as needed. Prominent applications already stem from so diverse fields such as medicine, mobility, or art. So where does that leave an SME? Can they still strive in an economy dominated by platforms and huge players, or are they doomed? Gottfried Vossen will try to give a perspective and answer to these questions.

After the keynotes, a panel discussion takes place with the speakers, Erik Stam (prof. dr. University of Utrecht), Bart van Looy (prof. dr. KU Leuven) and Jaap Beernink (CEO Novel-T).

HIGH TECH SMALL FIRMS CONFERENCE

This year, the High Tech Small Firms Conference (HTSF) takes place at the University of Twente. During this conference, researchers convene to discuss the current state of research on technology and science based entrepreneurship. A particular theme for this years’ conference will be on the interface of entrepreneurship and digital transformation of business, economy and society.

The High Tech Small Firms conference 2019 is sponsored and hosted by NIKOS and Novel-T in consortium with colleagues from RUG, VUAmsterdam and University of Leeds.
