Introduction

Joint innovation as a way out of the crisis, to a sustainable recovery!

2020 brought a worldwide tsunami of changes and at least as many challenges to be faced by our companies. The COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences on civil society has brought about changes in consumer and professional behaviour. Relevant trends such as digitisation and the demand for sustainability have accelerated the creation of challenges for the industry. Apart from during the brief lockdown at the beginning of the first wave, industrial companies were fortunate to be able to continue innovating during the public health crisis. Exceptional crisis periods also result in unique opportunities!
