A brief update on Innovation Forum’s work in 2020: Cross commodity research, stakeholder engagement and digital promotion

This post is a quick update for you on current plans that might be relevant for you, from Innovation Forum in 2020.

At Innovation Forum, we provide a platform for communication, stakeholder engagement and honest dialogue. We work closely with companies to leverage our experience, network and platform to drive progress around critical supply chain challenges. Here are some of the areas that you can get involved in through to the end of the year.

Cutting edge, virtual conferences

Having adapted quickly to the current environment, we have already successfully delivered five virtual conferences in the past few months, with excellent feedback. We focus on replicating the true value of in-person conferences, whilst making the most of the new opportunities that our virtual platform can offer. We have big plans to build on this at our upcoming events:

The Future of Plastics (20th-22nd October)

Sustainable Landscapes and Commodities Forum (3rd-5th November)

In-depth, cross commodity research

Our research groups provide a private, independent forum for key actors to speak openly and break down barriers. They are structured to tackle very specific issues in-depth. We provide clear, tangible and practical outcomes for those involved to drive a real impact on the ground. We are currently convening a group to create effective action on smallholder resilience and food security. We also have plans to develop research coalitions in additional areas, including green manufacturing.

You can see details on our current project here.

Stakeholder engagement workshops

Our virtual workshops enable you to engage a broad range of key stakeholders across the IF community. We provide access to the right audience and deliver independent, expert facilitation to ensure an effective conversation. The virtual working groups provide a unique, global perspective, without the carbon footprint.

Digital media and promotion

Innovation Forum has an extensive network across a range of communications channels. We offer opportunities to connect with our network and to promote specific initiatives via our podcast channel, webinar series and online publishing. Our experienced editorial team work with clients to ensure content creation is valuable, challenging and reaches the right audience.

We are always on the lookout for new partners with common objectives. Even in these challenging times, we have the platform, the network and the reach to help business engage key stakeholders and make progress in essential areas.

If you are interested in any of the above, or simply being kept up to date, then please get in touch. It would be great to hear from you.
