Intro

The MELT Innovation Forum
on 9 April 2019 in the Tallinn Creative Hub

“It always seems impossible until it is done.” – Nelson Mandela

The MELT innovation forum, which is organised each spring by the Tallinn City Enterprise Department and the Tallinn Creative Incubator, is an inspirational meeting that looks to the future.   

During the last three years, MELT has become an awaited event and a centre of innovation, where the best practitioners, the newest ideas and technologies for the future from different fields of business and life can be found. And where the participants can discover, learn about and see the various innovative opportunities that surround us.  

This year’s MELT will involve the participants in exciting debates that focus on the circular economy, the protection of the environment and promotion of sustainability. The future will be discussed – and whether innovation can save the world. We will also be discussing knowledgeable production, innovative business models and technologies as well as introducing them to companies. 

Who should attend?

All entrepreneurs, investors, inventors, designers and those who are interested in the future and innovation are invited to attend. A substantial programme will be presented, in which experienced lecturers and professionals will participate. There will also be an innovation showroom which will be ideal for networking and developing new ideas!

The main themes of the MELT innovation forum have been announced!

The focus of this year’s innovation forum is sustainability and new business models.

How do we cope with the constantly increasing consumption and decreasing resources in the world, where the environmental impacts resulting from production have become ever more painfully felt? 

At MELT, we will examine whether product development based on a circular or platform economy can save the world. What do these concepts mean to producers and consumers in practice?

How to implement them? What can we learn from others, and how to choose the right path for us?  These and other topics will be examined in the six subject blocks of the MELT innovation forum. 

The subject block called ‘How to preserve one’s identity in the maelstrom of changes?’ presents the story of the development of a special and unique product, and discusses how to protect one’s creation from counterfeiting. In addition, the role of physical identity in the digital world will be discussed. 

‘Will future technologies save the world?’ examines various constructive ideas for the future and technologies both here and abroad. 

‘Is conscious manufacturing a challenge for entrepreneurs?’ focuses on environmentally friendly innovation and its importance.  

‘How to involve employees in change?’ examines the involvement of employees in the implementation of innovative projects, based on the example of three companies, and analyses the impact on the overall work environment. 

The subject block "Challenges of the Future Food?"  deals with food and how it will change in time. Will bread in the future taste the same? Or will it be something new? 

The subject block ‘Does a changing environment require new business models?’ takes a closer look at various organisations and their innovative approaches to business. 

Come and discover. The future won’t wait!

The MELT innovation forum will take place on April 9th at the Tallinn Creative Hub.
