Lifelong Learning | Innovation Management | Experienced R&D Professionals | EIT RawMaterials Industry Partners | Start-ups

The RACE PRO is a course for experienced by R&D professionals which will deepen your expertise in Innovation Management processes.

During the course, participants will hear from R&D professionals about how they are working with innovations and running innovation management processes – and reflect on how they can improve their own innovation management skills.

The course involves a series of three study visits to host industry partners at different stages of the raw materials value chain. Each study visit will be 2 days long.  The study visits will be spread over 6 months, to fit in with your professional commitments.

A common theme of all three study visits is the transition to electric mobility. This transition will affect the raw materials sector in different ways – and so the host companies have been selected to  illustration alternative innovation strategies and their supporting Innovation Management processes.

Participants in the RACE PRO will gain the unique benefit of seeing ongoing innovation management cases  before they are written in the text books.
