Welcome from the ICHRIE President
Hello dear ICHRIE Family and Friends,
Please let me welcome all of you to wonderful Apeldoorn and to this year’s EuroCHRIE conference. The EuroCHRIE conference is the annual Federation highlight and this year will be no different.
The theme of the conference, ‘Thrive on Innovation & Entrepreneurship’, provides for a range of stimulating debates, all of which are key to building resilience and new business models in a post-pandemic world and in a sector that, perhaps more than other sectors, was affected by the pandemic.
Having organised the EuroCHRIE conference 2018 in Dublin I know how much work goes into putting such an event together. My most sincere thanks, therefore, go out to Maggie Feng and her team at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences who have put together a fantastic programme with more than ample opportunities for sharing our research, industry engagement and speakers, and networking. A highlight will be the gala dinner on the grounds of the Dutch Royal Family.
I also want to draw your attention to the sponsors of this conference. As you know, without sponsors there would not be a conference. So please find out what our sponsors have to offer during the conference.
I hope you all had a good start into the new semester at your universities and I look forward to welcoming you personally in Apeldoorn.
Dr. Ralf Burbach
(ICHRIE President, 2022-2023, Past President of EuroCHRIE)
