  2. 2. JvdB/10.027 EU2020: Raising R&D investments to 3% of GDP • Company investments are driven by expected returns • Low private R&D investments in EU reflect unfavourable framework conditions for innovation • Wide range of policy measures across EU innovation system are needed to boost private R&D and innovation – Input: more public investments in Knowledge Triangle – Throughput: more efficiency & effectiveness – Output: more market demand for innovative products & services Input Throughput Output
  3. 3. JvdB/10.027 Philips’ health and well-being offer leverages critical global trends Ageing population • The number of people aged over 60 will double from 500 million today to 1 billion by 2015 Emerging markets • 99% of future population growth will be in emerging markets; Emerging economies are expected to account for 2/3rd of global GDP by 2016 Empowered consumers • Consumers are increasingly focused on their Health and Well- being and look for products that fit their lifestyle Climate change and sustainable development • 19% of global electricity consumption is used for lighting; Energy efficient lighting can save 40%...or 600 power stations worth of energy
  4. 4. JvdB/10.027 Invest more in Knowledge Triangle • Shift direction of investments towards societal challenges in common interest of society, public sector and private sector – Sustainability – Energy efficiency – Clean water – Personal well-being – Ageing population – Homecare, independent living – Better healthcare for all, at lower cost • Gear EU budget more towards future knowledge-based economy – Increase budget for next R&D Framework Programme
  5. 5. JvdB/10.027 From Closed to Open Innovation • 103 hectares • 90 companies • 5 institutes, e.g. Holst Centre • 8,000 R&D staff • 50 nationalities • 45,000 m2 laboratory space • 185,000 m2 operational office space • 6,000 m2 space for start-up companies • More than € 500M invested by Philips Closed Philips Research HQ, Eindhoven 2000 Open High Tech Campus Eindhoven, NL 2010 5 2003
  6. 6. JvdB/10.027 Improve efficiency & effectiveness • Stimulate Open Innovation – Promote Handbook for Responsible Partnering • Simplify Framework Programme – Industry participation down from 39% in FP4 to 25% in FP7 – Most EC proposals for simplification make sense – Only transition to output/results-based financing causes major concern • Cut red tape by implementing risk-tolerant & trust-based approach – NL High Trust approach is good example – Personal liability for Staff officers should be eased 6
  7. 7. JvdB/10.027 Meaningful innovations in energy-efficient lighting 7
  8. 8. JvdB/10.027 Boost demand for innovative products and services • Stimulate market demand by innovation-friendly regulation, standardisation and public procurement – Without market demand, companies have little reason to invest in R&D • Unleash power of public procurement to promote innovation – Total public procurement in EU amounts to over 2 trillion euro per year – Use EU Structural Funds as incentive • Remove national barriers and complete Single Market – E.g. in tendering processes for healthcare systems, privacy legislation regarding patient data, reimbursement models for healthcare costs 8
  9. 9. JvdB/10.027 Concluding remarks • Philips welcomes Innovation Union – Integrated approach to innovation – Active & Healthy Aging as pilot for European Innovation Partnerships • EU needs strategic focus, speed and decisiveness – To achieve Europe 2020 ambitions and keep up with global competition 9
