Modis Life Sciences’ active engagement during the innovation conference ISPIM ‘Innovating our common future’ (June 2021)

 

ISPIM – innovation conference

June 2021 will mark the start of the innovation conference ISPIM (International Society for Professional Innovation Management) – Innovating our common future. Notwithstanding the switch from a face-to-face event in the vibrant city of Berlin (Germany) to a virtual setting, the ambitions of this innovation management conference remain ever so high:

  • Engaging interactions with fellow innovation professionals from academia, industry, consulting and the public sector in workshops, hot-topic discussions, and discussion panels as well as networking events.
  • Inspirational talks from leading innovation thought leaders in fireside chats and interviews during the event.

Find more information about ISPIM on the conference website or engage on social media using the hashtag #ISPIMBerlin.

 

Modis & Try-All proof-of-concept project

Modis Life Sciences Belgium will actively engage with stakeholders during the conference. During the ‘Health, Healthcare & Innovation Management’ session on June 22nd, our colleagues from the Modis Innovation Lab will present the Try-All case (PoC study Try-All: innovating scalability and delivery in clinical trials). Try-All developed a solution, using fast learning cycles, for clinical trial participants who are immobile and hard to reach. Our proof-of-concept study aimed to validate a scalable, fast response mobile unit to deliver patient-centric trials. Our consultancy expertise does not refrain us from actively engaging and participating in ground-breaking, innovative projects. With the support of Janssen Clinical Innovation and the DeepSpa project (EIT Health), we successfully transformed an ideation process into a proof-of-concept study with direct impact on how we deliver clinical trials in remote setting and, most important, on patients.

Lead the Charge: One season, your career in pole position.

Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team and Modis launch the search for an ambitious individual to
join the team for one electrifying racing season of Formula E.

The Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team, in conjunction with its Official Engineering Partner Modis, have
announced an exhilarating opportunity for tech and engineering students, graduates or anyone with
a technical background who is looking to make an exciting move into motorsport– the chance to
work alongside Team Principal Ian James, and be at the heart of the sustainable future of
motorsports for one season.

Based in Brackley, UK, but with frequent international travel and weekend races, the talented
individual who lands this dream role will have a set area of key responsibilities and will have the
opportunity to absorb and learn what it takes to run a successful Formula E Team.

“This is an amazing opportunity for an ambitious individual with a passion for tech, innovation, and
motorsports’’ says Jan Gupta, President of Modis. “As a leading company in tech and digital
engineering consulting, Modis has its own tech talent services, so we’re used to finding, placing, and
skilling the world’s top talent within technology, engineering, manufacturing, financial services, and
other industries.

“To place somebody within the Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team, a brand absolutely synonymous with
excellence in engineering, is something really special and a phenomenal opportunity for somebody
to launch their career in this exciting field.”

Ian James, Team Principal of the Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team, is equally enthusiastic: “When we
first partnered with Modis, we knew that one of the key things they would bring us was the ability to
find people with highly specialised technical skills. These are not easy to find, particularly in such a
competitive field as Formula E. This specific role is particularly exciting because it is all about
developing talent for the future, and we are both very focused on building a more sustainable
tomorrow.”

The role has been specifically designed for a tech graduate or an engineering professional, and the
ideal candidate will be expected to have a deep understanding of technology and engineering, a
strong interest in innovation, sports, and racing towards a more sustainable future – not forgetting
the importance of outstanding communication skills. With experience of working on strategic and
operational projects, the chosen candidate will need to be a real “people person” with a can -do
attitude.

On June 11th, we’ll be hosting a live Q&A with Ian James who will talk more about what you can
expect from this role. You can tune into the session and find out more details about this exciting
position here: www.modis.com/leadthecharge
