This program is designed to equip the company’s most senior technology managers with research-based concepts and practical tools to manage global R&D and Innovation. The participation from the company will ensure access to the latest thinking of how to manage global R&D operations.

The program consists of three intensive modules that ensure a steep learning curve and a limited time away from desk. After each module, the participant will already implement some of the learning points. After completion of the program, the participant will be well equipped to guide the company’s global R&D and Innovation.

For delivering this program, Chalmers University of Technology uses its international network of experts in Europe, India, China and the United States.

This is the 28th edition of the program. Many global companies have chosen to work with us to develop their senior R&D managers by nominating them to this program. Nominating an employee is a good way to show trust and build loyalty and prepare him/her for his/her future career in your company.
