Ramon Vullings: Cross-industry inovations for energy sector
11/9/2018We bring the video of the ENERGOFORUM® 2018 key-note speaker performance. Ramon Vullings, the expert for cross-industry innovations, focused on looking for ideas in other sectors and transferring them to the energy sector. Cross-industry innovations are a low-risk but highly efficient approach to innovation. "IdeaDJ" is able to mix ideas across multiple areas. Three strategies are important: best ideas come from outside, COOL combinations, not doing just COPY-PASTE.
