Despite vast investments and development of innovation technologies, many industries in Central Europe still focus on product manufacturing. Low cost competition from non-EU counties, together with gradual commoditisation further challenge their competitiveness. Thus, it is essential especially for SME companies to adapt their skills and successfully overcome rapid changes, following innovation and technological progress. Servitisation of products through adequate human capital investment could be one of the solutions for a greater prosperity on an ever-changing market. 

THINGS+ project aims to enrich portfolio of companies with additional services that can increase value delivered to customers and improve their position on the market, by strengthening entrepreneurs skills in service innovation management.

THINGS+ project is focused in transformation of traditional companies into regional innovation motors, with no excessive investments. Key output will be a new approach to improve entrepreneurs’ skills that help them introduce service innovation into manufacturing companies and increase prosperity on changing markets.

THINGS+ Final ConferenceSERVITIZATION: An Opportunity for Growth in European Regions

6 October I 10:00-13:00 CET I Online I Free

REGISTER HERE  I AGENDA & BACKGROUND

Briefly about the conference

The world became cross-connected in pandemic times and digitization made companies competing for every individual customer. SMEs are struggling for customers in the competitive market where are companies like Netflix, Apple, and Rolls-Royce. Especially manufacturing SMEs need urgent support in the transfer of business model from Product delivery to Advance service delivery. They need to involve the newest technologies (IoT, AI, BigData, Industry 4.0, etc.), make new partnerships, and adapt the organizational culture of the company. In this transformation process, full support from policymakers is needed for co-creating a supporting environment, including broader regional stakeholders. Through service innovation, SMEs gain higher revenue, long-term customer loyalty, and new partnerships with regional stakeholders & technology innovations. With an active co-creation role, SMEs return with synergy effects on other regional stakeholders. And policymakers are this way supporting the process of making regional SME network more competitive on a global level.
