NEW international programme by Vlerick and Judge Business School (Cambridge)

The SmartPill is electronically instructed to deliver a drug to a specific location in the human body. Did you know that this medical breakthrough is the result of diverse industries teaming up for strategic innovation?

How can you source innovation by developing a network outside your organisation? Vlerick teamed up with the University of Cambridge Judge Business School to create the new international programme 'Strategising for Innovation'. This programme will show you how to create collaborative partnerships and blend corporate with entrepreneurial innovation models to create future technology options and accelerate emerging businesses.

Professor Michael Barrett (Cambridge): “We bring to the programme an emphasis on ecosystem innovation which we believe firms truly need to embrace in the 21st century”.
