1 The Role of CNR and the New Frontier of Innovation Prof. Luigi Nicolais Sao Luis – July 23, 2012 1

2 Main Processes of Transformation Industrial System Man Powered Brain Powered Political System One Centralised State Devolved Light State Self - Referential System Open System Academic System 2

3 Transitions Acceleration of transformation Globalisation of economic systems and production Multi-ethnic social environment, glocal as new identity Science and Technology pushing economy Small and Medium Enterprises moving from subcontractors to technological partners Modernity is the synthesis of a global complexity 3

4 New Challenges To maintain competitiveness and leadership in local production systems by investing in immaterial factors and quality level with a low risk of imitation To connect enterprises and know–how experts on common platforms or interfaces, supported and oriented by the public sector onto specific areas of strategic interest To develop a knowledge – based Society 4

5 Competing on the global market In a global market the creation of knowledge and innovation are the prerequisites for growth and economic development. To increase knowledge is therefore the necessary condition for innovation. People and infrastructures must be involved so that the capability of transforming knowledge into innovation can be increased and innovation can be transferred into new products. 5

28 The new strategic vision of CNR on the European and International stage Further development of interactions with international scientific communities (Science Europe, Global Research Council, ICS…) Strenghtening the role of CNR in EU Structured participation in European Technological Alliances and Platforms Involvement in the major international debates on scientific and strategic policy: Open Access, Research Integrity, Peer Review, Research Careers, Research Infrastructures, Ex-post evaluation, … 28

29 Programming Innovation Strengthening and developing creative infrastructure Reducing the gap between academic and industrial research, applied research and innovation development in the enterprises Encouraging a policy of public investment on projects jointly carried out by industrial and academic research teams Making public administration more competitive 29

30 Public Institutions Geographical concentration of people, enterprises and institutions which together participate to a high – level technological industrial area. TECHNOLOGICAL DISTRICTS are born and developed under the drive of 4 very recognizable factors : public insititutions commitment, the presence of talents, the participation of innovative enterprises and of private investors. Innovation Enterprises Talents Private Investors 30

33 Creating Networks among the Districts Within the framework of agglomeration, it is crucial that all districts create synergies on common projects. The main goal is that of increasing the visibility and the role played by districts on national and international level. The districts must be the main actors in the process of transformation of our national production model. 33

34 THE NEW FRAMEWORK PROGRAM: HORIZON 2020 3 Priorities 1.Scientific Excellence 2. Industrial Competitiveness 3. Societal Challenges 34
