Transcript of "Medi-Cube Final Event Komninos ppt"

  1. 1. Virtual Incubation Environment An application in the field of intelligent cities Nicos Komninos URENIO MEDICUBE Final Event Noesis, 20 March 2008
  2. 2. Emerging innovation trends GLOBALISATION OF INNOVATION Global technology markets emerge: There is now much greater interest for external knowledge and technology sourcing (see http://www.yet2.com/app/about/home) and global technology cooperation networks (see http://www.innocentive.com). Offshoring: The movement of a business process done at a company in one country to the same or another company in another, different country. This includes any business process such as production, manufacturing, or services, and innovation as well: From GPNs to GINs. R&D in offshore locations: Global firms conduct R&D in offshore locations attracting the best of local talents. VC funds require even for start-ups to plan an offshore outsourcing as precondition of funding. Emerging model: Keep strategic management functions (customer relations and marketing, finance, and business development) at home, but moving product development and R&D to offshore locations.

  3. 3. Emerging innovation trends THE RISE OF ASIA Innovation spending in Asia is growing at incredible rates: Business R&D expenditure rose by 5.2% in North America, 2.3% in Europe, and 3.8% in Japan during 2000-05, but by 17% in India and China, and by 19.7% in Australia, Brazil, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan combined. R&D intensity in the EU (measured by the R&D-to-GDP ratio) has been slowing down since 2000, and grew by 0.2% only in the period 2002-03. But in China, which has lower R&D intensity (1.31% of GDP in 2003),the growth rate is about 10% per year between 1997 and 2002. If this trend continues, China will be spending the same as the EU in 2010. The majority of the new R&D centers to be created by MNCs will be located in India, China and other Asian cities. Cisco has R&D facilities in Bangalore; Toyota in Thailand; Nokia operates nine satellite design studios located in India (Bangalore), China (Beijing), and Brazil. Emerging innovative clusters: Broadband technologies (South Korea, Singapore); Mobile communications (South Korea, Taiwan, China); Software (Bangalore, India)
  4. 4. Emerging innovation trends GAINS FROM GLOBALISED R&D Critically important factor Access to 24/7 global R&D 14 processes Higher volume of innovations 16 Reduce time to market for 21 innovations Ability to exploit pools of 22 skilled labour Reduced R&D costs 23 Ability to tailor goods and 26 services to particular markets 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 (% responders) Data source: Economist Intelligence Unit (2004)
  5. 5. Emerging innovation trends R&D SUBCONTRACTING - OFFSHORING R&D labs networks Satellite R&D labs, which combine of “home-base-exploiting” and “home-base-augmenting” R&D. Relative low strategic importance, vulnerable to budget cuts decided by headquarters. Contract R&D labs, pure “innovation offshoring” confined to the provision of lower-cost skills, capabilities and infrastructure. Knowledge exchange remains very limited. Equal Partnership labs are those MNCs labs that are charged with a regional or global product mandate. Knowledge exchange is higher and eventually there is mutual knowledge exchange.

  8. 8. Copying with the new trends A NEW RESEARCH AGENDA: Innovation systems+ Broadband Every district of a city •Productive cluster • Technology district • Central-city services area • Technology park • Incubator • University campus should develop / deploy its knowledge functions on a global scale using broadband networks, digital cooperation spaces, and online services.
