Inaugural Lecture by Adjunct Professor Martin Ertl, Bombardier:

Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Innovation

Martin Ertl will share his reflections on facing the challenges with leading the way in sustainable corporate innovation. He will also share his experience from moving in-between the worlds of business and academia. As a practitioner with a genuine interest in learning, Ertl has been an architect of several 'learning-journeys' including those applying novel models for organising innovation processes. Those experiences have been generously shared with CBS-students in the classroom. Leaning on these experiences, Ertl will reflect upon the possibilities and impossibilities of corporate innovation, as well as the learning-potentials that emerge from nurturing a rich conversation with academia in general and CBS-faculty and students in particular.
