In the weekly ‘follow-up’ section we present a sequel to last week’s best-read article here on Innovation Origins. This week centers on Jan Wouters’ column where he discusses promising developments within the automobile industry. But what influence is corona having on these developments?

Pieter Rahusen, a business developer and responsible for acquisition at the Automotive Campus in Dutch city of Helmond, hopes that those times are over. “People have begun to think differently in the past three months. What used to be considered impossible is now simply happening. Just look at education as an example. Almost everything has been transferred to digital formats. That takes some getting used to and requires adaptability. Even in other industries which were previously skeptical, now see that they can continue to get their work done just as efficiently as before.”
