Join the IRI Networks in Fort Worth, TX for the 2019 Fall Networks Conference! This event brings together innovators from every function of R&D for two days of learning and networking. Topics are chosen by the network members and attendees and explored through peer presentations, roundtable discussions, guest speakers and workshops. This fall will feature a half-day session led by IRI’s new Digital Transformation Community (included in your Fall Networks registration and open to all attendees), which will take a deep dive into a case study on digital transformation.  The DXC has commissioned RTI to conduct a series of case studies on how legacy organizations are making the leap to Industry 4.0.  At the Fall Networks Conference, RTI will teach the case study and facilitate a roundtable discussion for attendees on their key challenges with digital transformation.


Attendees may also choose to attend an optional workshop on Wednesday, September 25, 2019: Where Do We Grow From Here? Finding Opportunity in a VUCA Future.

As the future become increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, companies struggle to address the pace and potential consequences change will have on their organization. NewEdge has developed a unique approach to Future Proofing that is helping organizations assess the impact of changes taking place, align around priorities and identify opportunities that can lead to sustainable growth.


Join NewEdge Advisor, Mark Putnam and Executive Advisor, Andy Shafer for a “hands-on” workshop where we will share tools and methods for assessing the impact of changes, aligning around priorities and finding opportunities based on future trends. 

Innovation Research Interchange


Formerly the Industrial Research Institute, IRI is home to a worldwide network of cross-industry leaders driving innovation and new growth – representing small specialty companies, large global corporations, government labs, and everyone in between. CWRU was created in 1967 through the federation of two longstanding contiguous institutions: Western Reserve University, founded in 1826 and named for its location in the Connecticut Western Reserve, and Case Institute of Technology, founded in 1880 through the endowment of Leonard Case, Jr.. Time magazine described the merger as the creation of "Cleveland's Big-Leaguer" university.
