1 L’importanza delle Tecnologie Abilitanti per uno sviluppo integrato e sostenibile Luigi Ambrosio Department of Chemical Science and Materials Technology National Research Council Rome, Italy Email: “Smart Puglia: Verso la strategia di specializzazione intelligente 2014-2010” “Quali tecnologie abilitanti per la Puglia” “23 Luglio 2013, Bari

2 In 2009, European Member States and the European Commission identified Key EnablingTechnologies (KETs) for their potential impact in strengthening Europe's industrial and innovation capacity. Six KETs  nanotechnology  micro and nanoelectronics  advanced materials  photonics  industrial biotechnology  advanced manufacturing systems KEY ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES (KETs)

3 KETs are knowledge and capital-intensive technologies associated with high research and development (R&D) intensity, rapid and integrated innovation cycles, high capital expenditure and highly-skilled employment. Their influence is pervasive, enabling process, product and service innovation throughout the economy. KETs can assist technological leaders in other fields to capitalise on their research efforts. KEY ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES (KETs)

4 ……..multidisciplinary and trans- sectorial, cutting across many technology areas with a trend towards convergence, technology integration and the potential to induce structural change KEY ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES INTEGRATION

5 Estimated global market potentials of Key Enabling Technologies ……..Sustain significant increase of the enployment in the EU KEY ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES …..ECONOMIC IMPACT

6 Whilst European R&D is generally strong in new KET technologies, the HLG has observed that the transition from ideas arising from basic research to competitive KETs production is the weakest link in European KET enabled value chains. The gap between basic knowledge generation and the subsequent commercialization of this knowledge in marketable products, has been commonly identified across the KETs and is known in broad terms as the "valley of death" issue. This “Valley of Death” has been identified in many competitor countries, including the USA, China and Taiwan. All have established coordinated programmes in strategically important areas that cover the full innovation chain addressing basic and applied research, demonstrators, standardization measures, deployment and market access, all at the same time and, significantly, in a logical joined-up manner. THE “VALLEY OF DEATH”

7 AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO KETS FOR FUTURE COMPETITIVENESS: THREE PILLAR BRIDGE MODEL TO PASS ACROSS THE "VALLEY OF DEATH " The technological research pillar based on technological facilities supported by research technology organisation; The product development pillar based on pilot lines and demonstrator supported by industrial consortia The competitive manufacturing pillar based on globally competitive manufacturing facilities supported by anchor companies.

8 1.A single KETs and fully-fledged innovation policy at EU level - Make KETs a technological priority for Europe in terms of policies and financial instruments and investment - The EU should apply the TRL (Technology Readiness Levels) scale R&D definition to outlines the different steps which support the innovation and industrialisation process of technologies to transform ideas to the market. - Fully exploit the scope of relevant R&D definitions in its programmes which support the full and simultaneous implementation of the three pillar bridge model along the innovation chain, from basic research, through technological research, product development and prototyping up to globally competitive manufacturing. - Rebalancing of EU RDI funding programmes 2. A comprehensive strategic approach to a KETs policy at EU level 4. Combined financing to promote RDI investments in KETs 4. Globally competitive IP Policy 5. Education and skills EU should create a European Technology Research Council (ETRC) to promote individual excellence in technologically focused engineering research and innovation and establish the appropriate framework conditions through the ESF regulation in order to support KETs skills capacity building at national and regional level. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND DEPLOYMENT OF KETS IN EUROPE TOWARDS A COMPETITIVE EUROPEAN INDUSTRY

9 ‘’Invest in shared facilities and technology infrastructure to help small and medium-sized firms compete globally’’ Pillar 1: technology infrastructure ‘’investing in the advancement of new technologies with transformative potential, supporting shared infrastructure, and accelerating the manufacturing process’’ Pillar 2: accelerating the manufacturing process ‘’Invest to overcome market failures, to ensure new technologies are developed here: Individual companies cannot justify the investment required to fully develop many important new technologies that will have spillover benefits” Pillar 3: overcoming the market failure ‘’Create ways of moving discoveries past the Valley of Death’’ Valley of death ‘’The Nation’s long-term ability to innovate and compete in the global economy greatly benefits from colocation of manufacturing and manufacturing-related R&D activities in the United States. The loss of these activities will undermine our capacity to invent, innovate, and compete in global markets.’’ Pillar 3: co-location R&D/Manufacturing Elements of recommended actions by the PCAST – a “certain” overlap with our recommendations

12 Micro and nanoelectronics, including semiconductors, are essential for all goods and services which need intelligent control in sectors as diverse as automotive and transportation, aeronautics and space. Smart industrial control systems permit more efficient management of electricity generation, storage, transport and consumption through intelligent electrical grids and devices (HLG, 2009) Nanotechnology holds the promise of leading to the development of smart nano and micro devices and systems and to radical breakthroughs in vital fields such as healthcare, energy, environment and manufacturing (HLG, 2009) DISTRICTS AND KETs DHiTech DTADHiTech DTA DARE MEDIS DiTNE HBIO

13 Photonics is a multidisciplinary domain dealing with light, encompassing its generation, detection and management. Among other things it provides the technological basis for the economical conversion of sunlight to electricity which is important for the production of renewable energy, and a variety of electronic components and equipment such as photodiodes, LEDs and lasers. (HLG, 2009) Advanced Materials offer major improvements in a wide variety of different fields, e.g. in aerospace, transport, building and health care. They facilitate recycling, lowering the carbon footprint and energy demand as well as limiting the need for raw materials that are scarce in Europe.

14 Industrial biotechnology – also known as white biotechnology – uses enzymes and micro-organisms to make bio-based products in sectors as diverse as chemicals, food and feed, healthcare, detergents, paper and pulp, textiles and bioenergy. (HLG, 2009) Advanced Manufacturing Systems (AMS) comprise production systems and associated services, processes, plants and equipment, including automation, robotics, measurement systems, cognitive information processing, signal processing and production control by high-speed information and communication systems. AMS are essential for productivity gains across sectors such as the aerospace, automotive, consumer products, electronics, engineering, energy-intensive, food and agricultural as well as optical industries.
