8 Thailand (NSTDA/NECTEC) and Indonesia (BPPT) ICT Research Innovation Priorities EU SEACOOP Red=Common to Both Countries, Black=Thailand Only, Blue=Indonesia Only Information Security Embedded Systems E-Learning Technologies Open Source/Open Standards Low Cost Computing and Inclusive/Accessible Computing RFID Digital Libraries Environment/Energy Management E-Health Robotics and Automation Intelligent Vehicular and Mobility Access Next Generation Computing Grid Computing Web Technologies Wireless Broadband/Sensor Networks

9 University TIC / Institute Industry (Large & SME’s) Universities Technology Innovation Centres (Catapults) / Institutes Industry Research Centre Research excellence Research CentresTechnology & Innovation Centres RTO’s etcIndustrial R&D Centres Industry CommitmentUK Priorities RCUKRCUK, charity & other centres and institutes (IMRC’s IKC’s EIT’s etc) - Existing - Proposed - Potential Other organisations in the area. Major R&D centres & incubators -Opportunities for UK - Willingness to co-invest - Low Carbon -Digital Economy - Energy - Health/Medicine UK Landscape For Research Innovation Technology Readiness Level : Mapping the Landscape from Research Through to Challenge Areas For Each Key Technology and Application Area

10 UK Government Technology Strategy Board Types of Research Innovation and Funding BASAPPEXP Market readiness Research Councils Commercial Investment Venture Capital Research Council + others + Technology Strategy Board Funding Blue sky Feasibility Technology Demo System Dev. System Qual. Technology Development Prod. Prototype Commercialisation

11 Some Mechanisms for Stimulating Research and Commercial Collaboration Collaborative Research and Development Knowledge Transfer Partnerships Secondments Internships Knowledge Transfer Networks Science Parks Incubators, e.g. Entrepreneurship

12 What Do Academics Want from Industry? Peer recognition Real world experience Intellectual property Making their students employable with appropriate skills

13 What Does Industry Want from Universities? Research Legitimacy ‘Free’ Talent (plus ‘creative cool’ / underground subculture) to provide commercial edge

14 Facilitating University-Industry Collaboration (or why it doesn’t need to be difficult) Business ‘Dating’ Power of Referral of Students Working in Industry Mentors At Least 50% of University Staff Working Part-Time in Industry

15 1 st Hand Lessons Overseeing Business-Led R&D with Universities Complementary of Skill Sets in Rich Learning Setting Trust Mutual Understanding of Objectives and Expectations Clarity of Project Deliverables Protection and Exploitation of Intellectual Property Upfront Agreement on Dispute Resolution

16 How Can Universities Position Themselves to Work with Industry? Academics wearing Multiple ‘Hats’ Attract Sponsorship Developing Joint Funding Bids Reshape Curricula with Cross-Disciplinary Approach

17 Why Adopt a More Cross-Disciplinary Approach? Industry and Policy Drivers –Digitisation of Society –New Educational Approaches –Ageing Society –Climate Change

18 Why Adopt a More Cross-Disciplinary Approach? Research Innovation and Technology Transformations –Knowledge Curation/Search (Bio Science and ICT) –3D Printing (Nano, Electronics, Materials Engineering, Design) –Visualisation, Simulation, Interactivity (ICT, Media, Art, Pedagogy) –Internet of Things (Sensors, Data Science, Social Sciences) –Big Data (Information Management across Physical and Social Sciences)

19 CONCLUSIONS New Approaches to Education and Research Imperative for Innovation Collaborations Between Industry and Universities Have a Positive and Significant Impact on Industry Innovation

20 Advisory Services to Universities Enhance Research Capacity, Capability to Work with Industry and Links with Universities in Europe Contribute to Development of More Interdisciplinary Curricula Industry Trends Shaping University Curricula Facilitate New Partnerships with Universities in Europe Bring Experts from Europe Share Case Studies of University-Industry Collaboration Deliver Domain Knowledge, e.g. digital content, innovation, creative economy, games, programme management in collaborative environments Proposal Writing for Funding Bids in International Programmes
