Key findings from Korean STP training (Daejeon, Innopolis, May 2012)

  1. 1. Korean STP training presentation Daejeon, May 2012
  2. 2. Training overview STP training in Innopolis is held on annual, competitive basis. 20 participants from all over the world, 2 persons per country. Host: Ministry of Knowledge Economy / INNOPOLIS Foundation Span: 7-18 May, 2012 Location: Daejeon (incl. trips to surrounding TPs), S.Korea Costs: Sponsored by Innopolis (except for airfare) Geography: Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Mongolia, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Equador, Slovaquia, Srilanka, Irak, Saudi Arabia, Oman. Curriculum: • Introduction to Science & Technology Parks (STP) • Operation and Development Strategies • Research on Successful Cases of Korea's R&D Policies • Structure and Functions of the Daedeok Innopolis • Business Incubation & Tech-Commercialization • STP Business Action Plan Practice & Evaluation • Technology Commercialization Practice & Evaluation • Site Visits to Research Institutes, Hi-tech Companies, TPs
  3. 3. Tasks accomplished 1) Extensive lecture material acquired on paper/electronic media on ​​transfer and commercialization of technologies, STP foundation and state regulation. 2) Visits to GRIs (Government Research Institutions) with profiles similar to those of the NU Research Centers, such as KAIST, KIER, KRICT, ETRI. 3) Visits to industrial parks (Chungnam, Daedeok) and start-up companies (Golfzone, Cotde, VTT, Tabos, etc.), setup and pilot production process studied. 4) Business simulation project “Creation of an innovative cluster on the basis of the Nazarbayev University” presented, positive reviews and comments received. 5) Private visit to the Korean Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology (KRIBB): 1,500 staff, >40 labs, annual budget of >$100mln), the possibility of collaboration and training discussed. An offer for clinical trials and subsequent commercialization in Kazakhstan of the innovative cancer drug (based on differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells into NK-cells) received 6) Business contacts with similar international and Korean agencies established 7) As part of the culture lessons , basics of Korean language learnt 8) An official certificate of training completion awarded
  4. 4. Korean R&D overview
  5. 5. Innopolis overview #1 R&D district in Daejeon established by President Park Chunghee in 1973 with the opening of KAIST.  > 20 major research institutes,  > 40 corporate research centers  Highest number of PhDs in Korea  18 Incubators  310 resident firms  158 start-ups  Infrastructure  Special law on Daedeok R&D special zone
  6. 6. Innopolis history and mission Vision 2015
  7. 7. Innopolis governance structure
  8. 8. Innovative cluster development is a GRADUAL process (imitation to innovation) that takes years. A country should start by identifying & using its existing COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES. Key findings from the training
  9. 9. An ANCHOR should be used as a basis for INNOVATIVE CLUSTER – this could be either major University, a company, or trade route. Surrounding infrastructure is ESSENTIAL! Key findings from the training Daedeok Innopolis 1971: KAIST established 1974: Daedeok Science Park construction starts 1976: ETRI established 1992: Daedeok Science Park is fully built 2000: IT ventures bloom, the ‘Daedeok Valley’ miracle 2005: Science park renamed to DAEDEOK INNOPOLIS MIT Route 128 1957: 99 companies with 17,000 workers 1958: the Route widened from six to eight lanes 1965: 574 companies 1973: 1,212 companies 1980: positive effects of this growth on the local economy was named the "Massachusetts Miracle". Hsinchu Science and Industrial Park (Taiwan) was based on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC + UMC) to combat ‘brain drain’. Impact: nationals with 10-15 yrs of foreign work experience have returned. Now hosts >70% of global IT industry products ($40bn / year). Implementation examples worldwide
  10. 10. Innovative clusters worldwide presently follow the TRIPLE HELIX MODEL of University- Industry-Government relation which stimulate innovation through the synergetic effect. Key findings from the training Innovation Implementation in Korea
  11. 11. GOVERNMENTAL SUPPORT in form of FINANCIAL DOTATION and LEGAL INCENTIVES is essential on any stage of STP development. Consistent political leadership preferred. Key findings from the training
  12. 12. Robust IP RIGHTS ECOSYSTEM is required for development of the “Knowledge economy”, which could provide sufficient protection, as well as facilitate trade and consumption of IP. Key findings from the training
  13. 13. Accumulation of the existing GRIs under one entity (e.g. National Research Council) is required to COORDINATE the R&D activity, AVOID DUPLICATION and DILUTION of FUNDS. Key findings from the training Korea Research Councils Implementation in Korea
  14. 14. KAZAKHSTAN has potential to develop INNOVATIVE INTELLECTUAL CLUSTER around NU, if supported by Government & Industry. Key findings from the training Key areas of R&D focus (competitive advantages) identified: BioMedicine Integrated into the NU structure, National Medical Holding can act as an anchor for the 1st stage of the Cluster development. Space Industry Physical proximity of the Satellite Assembly Plant and the “Bayterek” space rocket complex can be the 2nd stage anchor. Renewable Energy Kazakhstan’s location and grid infrastructure allow using renewable sources of energy, at least to substitute current power import. Deep Oil Processing Abundant oil reserves favor petro chemistry and deep oil refinery: cracking, reforming. Coal gasification is an option to consider. Key incentives proposed to stimulate Cluster growth: Social: Legal: Economic: * Raise the prestige of researchers * Rigid & clear IP Rights Policy * Tax & customs duty free zone * Attractive infrastructure & leisure * Special regulation of the Cluster * Discounted rent and overheads * Military service exemption * Consistent governmental policy * Commercialization & VC funding
