Transnational Living Lab Potentials (Darko Ferčej)

  1. 1. www.centralivinglab.eu Budapest Midterm Conference - PGM Budapest, 1st of October, 2012 Transnational Living Lab potentials Darko Ferčej, M.Sc www.centralivinglab.eu E-zavod, Zavod za celovite razvojne rešitve E-Institute, Institute for Comprehensive Development SolutionsThis project is imolemented through the CENTRALEUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF
  2. 2. www.centralivinglab.eu Challenge • Smart specialization has to embrace the concept of open innovation, not only investment in the technological research • Smart specialization is a “hot topic” of regional development • generating unique assets and capabilities based on the regions distinctive industry structures and knowledge basis • avoid past and current practice of every region supporting everything and imitating each other • Smart specialization strategies are good step forward, lay upon rather complicated set of 6-step methodology.This project is imolemented through the CENTRALEUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF
  3. 3. www.centralivinglab.eu How to implement smart specialization strategies? • Europe can choose traditional way of reaching smart specialization by increasing R&D to 3%, supporting mainly technological research with the main goal to increase knowledge and produce large amounts of patents of which only few will be really successful on the market. • .... or it can choose new way, using open innovation and living lab methods to select research topics, resulting in medium amount of patents, that will be highly successful on the market.This project is imolemented through the CENTRALEUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF
  4. 4. www.centralivinglab.eu What has to be changed? • definition of innovation is the key for success. Currently Europe understands innovation as conducting the cutting-edge technology research in the laboratories. Consequently FP7 supported mainly basic technological research with no real impact on the market. • What should be new definition of innovation? Helga Novotny defines innovation as finding new ways of meeting consumer needs. • Apple... it is the most innovative company of the last decade, but its achievement does not lie on the results of its technology ….Apple’s success lies in deploying existing technology in the ways that meet consumer needs,This project is imolemented through the CENTRALEUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF
  5. 5. www.centralivinglab.eu Europe can develop only if it will forget traditions and accept open innovation • Living Labs can not only help to define priorities, but should be part of implementation process of smart specialization strategies • Open innovation should be horizontal priority of smart specialization ... and if achieving this living labs could play crucial role in the success of Europe’s innovation and competitiveness.This project is imolemented through the CENTRALEUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF
