  42. 42. The role of the industry consortium– members of the company limited by guarantee• Commitment to shared vision with TSB – Working with TSB to shape strategy – High calibre seconded staff – Are the members of the company limited by guarantee• Alignment of industry and Catapult research programmes – Must have significant UK R&D activity – Prepared to commission work from the Catapult• Help establish the credibility of the Catapult – Accelerating the commercialisation of research• Long term commitment to UK growth objectives – Prepared to embrace an open innovation culture to help drive growth
  43. 43. What is ‘open innovation’?“Open innovation is a paradigm that assumes that companies can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as they look to advance their technology. The boundaries between a company and its environment have become more permeable; innovations can easily transfer inward and outward. The central idea behind open innovation is that in a world of widely distributed knowledge, companies cannot afford to rely entirely on their own research..” Chesbrough, H.W. (2003). Open Innovation: The new imperative for creating and profiting from technology. Boston: Harvard Business School Press
  44. 44. Catapult Operating Guidelines• Prepared by TSB• Describe the working arrangements between TSB and the centres e.g. • Governance • Funding model • Metrics • Intellectual Property • State Aid • Communications and branding • Freedom of Information • Relationship with other public bodies • Sustainability• Will evolve as the network matures
  45. 45. Performance metrics – will be agreed with each centrePotential examples:• Increasing wealth creation arising from effective commercialisation of new technologies and applications fostered by the centres• Intermediate measures: • Value of work won competitively • Number of new customers, projects, successful projects, new customers/year, etc.• Sustainability should also underpin the business model for all centres
