2 Executive Summary ATTRACT is a novel R&D&I collaborative framework and programme around Detection and Imaging Technologies. It engages both the research communities using European Research Infrastructures (ERIs) and Industry with special attention paid to the Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs). It seeks the benefit of these stakeholders and the European society at large. ATTRACT focuses on Detection and Imaging Technologies because they are crucial enablers for industrial competitiveness. They are as well key for pushing the limits of scientific knowledge pursued by ERIs. They also constitute an essential element for future applications, products or businesses targeting upcoming Societal Challenges. In summary Detection and Imaging Technologies boost the mission of ERIs, empower industrial goals and create sustainable social wealth. ATTRACT proposes the paradigm of co-innovation. Right from the start co-innovating partners identify common synergies and subsequently co-develop and co-implement projects leading to mutual benefit. Co-innovation steers individual goals by optimizing know-how and resources towards a win-win outcome. ATTRACT proposes co-innovation as the process capable of respecting the fundamental mission of ERIs and at the same time generate industrial and societal value. In other words it translates Open Science into Open innovation. ATTRACT is a programme enabling a value added chain starting at ERIs. The mission of ERIs entails the invention, development and testing of a special kind of technology called breakthrough. Breakthrough technology creates new bases of industrial performance, new competitors and new business models and markets. When it is commercialized, widely accessible and put to service it generates transformative changes anticipating future societal needs. ATTRACT is proposed as a flexible programme that also provides active support for young researchers to benefit from industrial training within and R&D&I setting. ATTRACT s coinnovation paradigm creates the conditions for young researchers to profit from the hands on contact with industrial environments. It thus increases their opportunities in the job market. In parallel, industry benefits from young talent. Also, existing ATTRACT pilot experiences with Master level students (i.e. IdeaSquare at CERN) show how a programme like ATTRACT, when deployed at full scale serves to create a future entrepreneurship culture. 2

3 Introduction The present document is a White Paper describing the ATTRACT initiative. ATTRACT stands for breakthrough innovation programme for a pan-european detection and Imaging ecosystem. The purpose of this document is to propose ATTRACT as an open novel collaborative model in the area of Detection and Imaging Technologies. It is driven by the research communities in Europe, being facilitated by European Research Infrastructures (ERIs) and engaging Industry as co-developers. It pays special attention to the Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs). ATTRACT responds to the need expressed by the European Commission (EC) for establishing novel collaborative frameworks between ERIs and industry overcoming existing barriers 1. It thus aligns with the EC strategy of Horizon in its aim to boost European Innovation, Competitiveness and Sustainability. One of the main objectives of ATTRACT is to fully capture the added value of the Detection and Imaging research communities collaborating in ERIs. ATTRACT proposes them as forefront contributors by co-innovating with industry. This coinnovation will deliver breakthrough technology solutions addressing the Societal Challenges that Europe will face in the coming decades. ATTRACT will strongly contribute to achieve a European Research Area ("ERA") in which researchers, scientific knowledge and technology circulate freely. It will contribute as well towards achieving the Innovation Union. This will increase the capacity to generate, absorb and use new technology in Europe. Moreover it will enhance the future innovation capacity of ERIs. ATTRACT also wishes to align with the spirit of the new European Commission in its endeavor to build a Europe delivering jobs and growth for its citizens. Within this spirit, ATTRACT proposes cooperating across portfolios and organizations towards the generation of added value for Europe. It is necessary to emphasize that this White Paper constitutes an initial proposition. Therefore an open dialog will be established among potentially interested stakeholders at both the European and the EU Member States level, as well as in the public and private sectors. Only through coordination and active support from these stakeholders can an initiative like ATTRACT become a reality for the benefit of Europe. 1 See Research Infrastructures for Industrial Innovation Workshop, October 20, 2011, Brussels Report.

4 ATTRACT What is ATTRACT? ATTRACT is a novel R&D&I collaborative framework and programme around Detection and Imaging Technologies. It engages both the research communities using European Research Infrastructures (ERIs) and Industry with special attention paid to the Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs). It seeks the benefit of these stakeholders and the European society at large. ATTRACT: Aims to systematically exploit the breakthrough innovation potential within the Detection and Imaging research communities in ERIs, related to the ongoing and future fundamental science challenges. Aims to boost the collaboration between ERIs, supporting labs and industry in a coinnovation approach. Co-innovation means co-creating and co-developing breakthrough innovative projects leading to mutual benefits. Seeks new industrial added value (i.e. market applications) as well as direct benefit for the Detection and Imaging research communities (i.e. contribution to ERIs technology upgrading programmes). Targets results in the generation of added value towards European Sustainability, Competitiveness and Innovation in line with Europe 2020 agenda and its flagship initiatives. Proposes a new collaborative framework model with beneficial conditions for industry (i.e. ERIs and supporting labs acting as facilitators and first users of advanced prototypes). Aims to exploiting and enhancing the innovation capacity of ERIs. Facilitates education and resources to the next wave of European innovation-driven entrepreneurs. ATTRACT responds to the needs of the European Commission (EC) expressed explicitly in the context of Horizon in reference to ERIs for: Finding new models of cooperation with industry favorable to industrial needs (especially SMEs). 3 See for example, Establishing Horizon The Framework Programme for Research and Innovation ( ), EC Communication COM(2011) 809 final. 4

5 Contributing more directly to generate innovation oriented to mitigate the Societal Challenges. Contributing to boost European Industrial Competitiveness. Detection and Imaging Technologies as a converging techno-innovation paradigm In a recent report Frost and Sullivan 4 analyses in detail how emerging technologies and the so called Societal Mega-Trends are interdependent and interlocked. These dynamic relationships give rise to rapidly evolving applications across industries. They create as well new interdisciplinary spaces for application fields, business and markets previously unforeseen. The visionary study of Frost and Sullivan illustrates these considerations with the help of Figure 1. Figure 1. Top 50 Technology Web. Source: Frost and Sullivan TechVision 2020 Program--Top 50 Technologies. A close inspection reveals that Detection and Imaging Technologies are crucial enablers for all the converging technological families illustrated. More importantly they create bridges between them. In other words it will be difficult to think or foresee a future application, product or business targeting any upcoming Societal Challenge that is not enabled by cutting edge Detection and Imaging Technologies. ATTRACT proposes to focus on the areas of: Breakthrough ICT technology and applications. High performance materials and applications. Health Physics technology and applications. 4 TechVision 2020 Program--Top 50 Technologies. Frost and Sullivan 5

6 These three areas selected because: Close synergies and breakthrough innovation opportunities could be materialized out of the collaboration between European Detection and Imaging stakeholders. They align with key strategic innovation areas and initiatives proposed by the EC along the Europe 2020 strategic agenda and its flagship initiatives. They represent key impact areas both for European industries and industrial competitiveness and with regards to societal benefits. ATTRACT co-innovation paradigm: from Open Science to Open Innovation ATTRACT proposes a new collaborating paradigm called co-innovation 5 (Table 1). Table 1.

7 Co-innovation refers to the process in which the Detection and Imaging research communities together with Industry pursue and generate breakthrough innovation in close partnership. The co-innovation partners therefore identify right from the start common synergies and subsequently co-develop and co-implement projects leading to mutual benefit. Benefits Industry Access to a unique network of know-how and talent existing in ERIs. Reduced costs and time to market for developing breakthrough applications. Development of new applications for new markets. Research Communities Access to industrial talent, know-how and industrial manufacturing capability. Unique opportunity to further develop and speed-up technology upgrading programs. Seed long term collaborative links with industry. Opportunity to offer the research community industrial and entrepreneurship training. Table 2. Main (non-exhaustive) benefits that ATTRACT aims to report both to industry and Detection and Imaging research communities. In other words, co-innovation seeks added value outside traditional collaborative relationships between ERIs and Industry (Table 1). ATTRACT co-innovation paradigm is the vehicle for implementing the transition from Open Science towards Open Innovation 6. ATTRACT generates win-win situations in which the legitimate interests of the Detection and Imaging research communities utilizing ERIs are respected (i.e. Fundamental Science). At the same time these win-win situations provide enough market potential for industry. Some examples of mutual benefits are given in Table 2. ATTRACT as generator of breakthrough innovation ATTRACT will be able to generate a type of innovation known as breakthrough innovation (see footnote 4 and Table 3). For that ATTRACT leverages on the purpose of ERIs. Exploring the frontiers of science requires to push existing technologies to their very limit and in many cases, invent new revolutionary ones in order to match the required performance (e.g. the LHC and Detectors at CERN). This technology push, enhanced and enriched by the industrial manufacturing know-how, is the fundamental and necessary steam engine for generating breakthrough innovation. 6 Henry Chesbrough, private communication (2014). 7

8 Table 3. Comparison of different types of innovation as a function of technological development vs. the applications, business models and markets generated. Breakthrough innovation represents a constantly evolving change of paradigm both in the degree of technological development and the applications, business models and markets. It triggers a transformational change in society. As Figure 2 illustrates, incremental innovation is unlikely to provide a dramatic change on market applications and the creation of new business models. Substantial innovation provides greater opportunity to value-added as it engenders the creation of business opportunities that are likely to lead the industry. It as well provides a competitive advantage to the company developing them. On the other hand, breakthrough innovation can turn an industry on its head, creating new bases of performance, new competitors and new business models and markets. Figure 2. Types of innovation vs. their degree of industrial competitiveness and societal added value. This level of innovation is often visible across industries and crops up as the subject of business school case studies. Breakthrough innovation is frequently technology based. For example, the 8

9 development of the transistor and later on the integrated circuits enabling not only the semiconductor industry but overarching all range of applications and industrial sectors till today. Brief analysis of ATTRACT with respect to the European FET funding programme The long term vision of ATTRACT is to reach a status where the initiative is self-sustained based on the interest, investment and return of investment generated for different public and private actors. Such a long term vision will entail the coordination and encompassing of different and streamlined public and private funding mechanisms. Nevertheless the proposed starting point is Horizon 2020 since public funding is recognized as enabler for technological breakthroughs 7. Existing funding programmes within Horizon 2020 such as FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) 8 pursue breakthrough innovation. FET supports early-stage research on any idea for a new technology. There are no pre-defined themes. It encourages scientists and engineers from multiple disciplines to work together on game-changing science- and technology research, expanding well beyond the traditional disciplines. However, the fundamental difference between the FET Programme and ATTRACT resides in three crucial built-in differentiators which directly facilitate the application of results and market uptake: In ATTRACT the industrial presence in projects is guaranteed due to its co-innovative approach therefore ensuring the industrial added value of the project results from the start. All projects results in ATTRACT will find immediate applicability in ERIs facilities (i.e. an immediate internal market for the project is available). This application scenario will lower the amount of resources that industry has to put to further develop technologies commercially. The fact that this internal market is ensured paves the way for industry to take competitive advantage towards other applications areas and therefore new markets

10 Table 5. Comparison of the degree of certainty for market uptake of project results the FET EC Funding Programme vs. ATTRACT. The above fundamental differentiators allow to establish a comparison between FET and ATTRACT based on the degree of certainty associated to the market uptake of the project results (Table 5). The table reflects that ATTRACT will evolve closer to market. ATTRACT contribution for the benefit of industrial competitiveness in Europe Breakthrough innovation takes a considerable amount of time to be translated from ideas into commercial applications and jobs (i.e. normally decades). ERIs constitute a natural scenario for shortening it since they constitute the very first and extremely demanding environment in which breakthrough technologies must perform. Figure 3 resumes the benefit of ATTRACT along this thinking. Figure 4 illustrates this more thoroughly by expressing that development and commercialization of breakthrough innovation represents an increase of costs for companies. 10

11 Figure 3. Schematic representation of the benefits of ATTRACT in terms of radically shortening the time to market for breakthrough innovation. (A) Normal route; (B) ATTRACT leverage factor. Moreover (besides the cost toll) innovation commercialization has an associated delay to market. This shortens the active commercial lifetime of a product and therefore its potential return on investment. ATTRACT offers a unique opportunity to radically mitigate these effects (especially affecting highly innovative SMEs). As Figure 4 illustrates further, in parallel to a decrease in internal development costs, breakthrough applications will represent novel sources of revenues. These will materialize in many cases activating new markets with low or no competition threshold. Some of the fundamental elements that ATTRACT brings together based on Figures 2 and 3 include: Direct co-development of performing technologies. Straightforward technology test beds facilitated by ERIs. Existing and extensive experience from the European Detection and Imaging research communities to perform in an environment of complexity and high degree of uncertainty. Offering industry the access to a global R&D network associated to ERI facilities which speeds up user identification and adaptation. It is important to emphasize that the same benefits can be translated towards the Detection and Imaging research communities and initiatives. These benefits do not translate commercially but by speeding-up ERIs technology upgrading programs and consequently boosting the fundamental science research. 11

12 Figure 4. ATTRACT industrial competitiveness benefits in comparison with traditional cost/revenue structures. (left) Traditional, (right) ATTRACT approach. The need of breakthrough technologies for addressing Societal Challenges The EC has recognized the need of breakthrough innovation to confront the Societal Challenges that Europe will face in the coming decades 9. It is becoming clear that incremental innovation will not do the job since it will only generate an adaptive response (Figure 5). Substantial innovation as well can only offer a reactive solution to the problem. But if we target for anticipatory responses towards societal challenges then the need for breakthrough technologies is clear 10. As commented above, Detection and Imaging technologies carry a potential transformative change in society. 9 See Flagship Initiatives of Europe 2020 Strategy

13 Figure 5. Degree of Societal added value vs. Technology and application novelty. ATTRACT is situated in the sector high-high. The situation is summarized in the following value-added chain (Figure 6). In this sense the contribution of ATTRACT will be key for generating the technological capability to anticipate the needs that societal changes will bring. Figure 6. ATTRACT co-innovation value-added chain. ATTRACT could be interpreted as a positive feedback loop. It increases the capacity for fundamental science-based innovation fuelled by radical new knowledge. This capacity enables the creation of technological paradigm shifts for a sustainable growth that as well opens new fundamental scientific avenues. ATTRACT as a programme fostering entrepreneurial skills of young researchers in Europe ATTRACT is proposed as a flexible programme that also provides active support for young researchers to benefit from industrial training within and R&D&I setting. Young researchers will profit from the hands on contact with industrial environments thus increasing their opportunities in the job market. In parallel, industry will be able to hire specifically trained young talent. 13

14 Beyond this approach 11 the acquisition of business skills will be a fundamental pillar. ATTRACT incorporates innovation specialists and business schools that will guide and boost the entrepreneurial spirit of young researchers. The statistic 12 shows that for 45% of Europeans it never crossed their minds to start a business. They also show that for 79% of Europeans it is difficult to start one s own business due to lack of financial support 13. ATTRACT will take on board pilot experiences with MSc students and multiply them across all running projects using the hosting capacity and experience of ERIs. Business specialists will support by driving the desire of young students to start innovative companies. Existing pilot initiatives such as IdeaSquare at CERN can be easily incorporated 14. At IdeaSquare teams of master students coming from different backgrounds are superimposed to EU Funded projects related to Detection and Imaging Technologies. The objective is to rapidly prototype ideas with societal value inspired by these projects. This cross-fertilization leads in many cases to unforeseen applications that end up in the establishment of start-up companies 15. Similar initiatives exist in different organizations across Europe. For example Fly Your Ideas 16 (Airbus) is one example. Since its inception in 2008 it has involved 11,000 students from at least 600 universities in over 100 countries worldwide thinking of new and better ways to fly. ATTRACT will provide a platform for cross-benefitting from the examples mentioned and many others nowadays scattered. This will capture and stimulate the full potential of young entrepreneurs. The potential impact of ATTRACT: industrial value and jobs As mentioned before ATTRACT focuses on Detection and Imaging Technologies which is a technologically converging paradigm. Table 6 represents a non-exhaustive summary of the contributions of ATTRACT to different industrial sectors for which these technologies are cornerstone.

Non-exhaustive illustration of ATTRACT contribution to different Industrial Sectors and fields. As an example, ATTRACT will benefit directly the ICT sector which constitutes a total business value added of 8.5 % for the EU; moreover ICT employment represents 3 % of total business sector employment in the EU 17. A relevant ICT domain for ATTRACT is embedded technologies

16 Application area EU companies turnover 2012 (Billion Euros) Turnover growth/year R&D % overall R&D in EU (2012) billion Euros Total Aerospace defense Alternative Energy & Automotive Electronic electrical equipment Healthcare equipment and services Industrial engineering Software computer services & and R&D growth/year Table 7. European companies overview according to performance parameters in the area of embedded technologies (ref.18). Table 7 is extracted from the EU R&D Scoreboard. It is based on a survey structured by application fields and providing industrial R&D achievements and efforts for the Top1000 R&D European companies in this domain 18. As Table 7 indicates about 20% of the total R&D is spent on the Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems R&D (1% of turnover) which is equivalent to an annual investment of 14 billion in ATTRACT could serve to create new opportunities for capitalizing the projected increase to 21 billion in The importance of generating new opportunities in this technology domain is illustrated in EU scoreboard on R&D investments Based on a survey by ARTEMIS Industry Association & ITEA Office Association 16

Estimated number of features based on Embedded Technologies by 2020 per application area (source ref. 19). As the table shows the number of features based on Embedded Technologies that key industrial sectors in Europe will use by 2020 is significantly. Closely linked to the example above ATTRACT will have an impact on the area of micro/nano electronics. This sector and its natural downstream ICT industries created more than additional jobs during the last decade in Europe 20. Figure 8 depicts the importance of this sector in terms of value and employment. 20 European Commission. DG Enterprise and Industry.

18 Fig. 8 Electronic Industry value chain (source: DECISION, Société d'études et de conseil indépendante) 21. Closely coupled to the development of innovative sensing and imaging technologies systems is the need for highly efficient and operative solutions for big data management (i.e. analysis and storage), ultrafast data communication (i.e. networks, compressing algorithms) as well as security that guarantees the transmission of data. ATTRACT can contribute to the development of such end-of-the-value-chain. Some examples are illustrated in Table 9 and using a CERN OpenLab recently published white paper 22 as a reference CERN OpenLab Whitepaper on Future IT Challenges in Scientific Research 18

19 Technology Areas addressed Examples of technological opportunities by ATTRACT Future Networks Hybrid of optical fibre and wireless technologies. Machine-to-machine communications - Internet of Things, including UE-to-UE (User Equipment). Multi-granular, flexible, scalable transparent and adaptive optical networks, supporting channel rates of Tb/s. Trust, security, and privacy mechanisms and protocols. Intelligent, self-adjusting and self-healing Wi-Fi networks. Secure, high-bandwidth mobile communication technology. Data Warehouse Appliances. Storage Flash Storage Arrays. In-Memory Database Management Systems. Software Defined Storage. Hosting/Cloud Converged Infrastructure. In-Memory Analytics. Low-Energy Servers. Massively Multi-Core Servers. Computing Mobile Collaboration Apps. and Mobility Person-to-Person Mobile Video. Mobile Supply Chain Apps. Mobile Enterprise Asset Management Apps. Security Security as a Service Trust on a Chip Context-Aware Firewalling Table 9. Examples of technologies in the ATTRACT perimeter enabling EU Digital Single Market. The technologies listed in Table 9 will be some of the key enablers for the Digital Single Market for Europe which is an imperative priority in the European Commission agenda 23. The digital single market has the potential to improve access to information, to bring efficiency gains in terms of reduced transaction costs, dematerialized consumption and reduced environmental footprint. Moreover, it will boost business and administrative models (i.e. e-commerce, e- government). Recent mapping of the costs of non-europe has indicated that in the longer run the digital single market could contribute around EUR 520 billion to the GDP of the EU-28. Around half of this benefit can be achieved in the coming years with the right blend of policies in place. In specific policy areas such as the adoption of cloud computing, 80% of organizations could reduce costs by 10% to 20%. Other benefits include enhanced mobile working (46%), 23 Fact Sheets on the European Union 2014, The ubiquitous digital single market, European Parliament website 19

20 productivity (41%) and standardization (35%), as well as new business opportunities (33%) and new markets (32%). Vulnerable people (the elderly, those with reduced mobility, those isolated in rural areas, those with low purchasing power) can derive particular benefit from the digital single market, making the EU a better placed to meet the demographic challenges of today. As Table 6 illustrated ATTRACT has the potential to contribute to the future development of key European industrial sectors depending directly on detection and imaging technologies. Some examples may help to put this in perspective. Aeronautics, Space, Security and Defence industries in Europe generate a turnover of approximately 165 billion euros, employ some 700,000 people and encompass over 2,000 companies and 80,000 suppliers, many of which are SMEs 24. Sectors involved in the European Process Industry represent a major part of the manufacturing base in Europe (EU28), including more than 450,000 individual enterprises with approx. 7 million employees, generating more than 1,600 billion turnover. They represent 20% of the total European manufacturing industry, both in terms of employment and turnover 25. Another crucial example in which ATTRACT can contribute is the European Robotics sector. The global robotics market is now worth around 16 billion a year, with some 3 billion of that in the EU. The EU also has a 25% share of the global industrial robotics market, and half of the professional service robotics sector. By 2020, the whole service robotics market could be worth over 100 billion 26. ATTRACT will contribute to growing application areas such as Earth Observation. Global Earth Observation midstream turnover amounted to approximately 2 billion in It is expected to reach around 4 billion by 2022, with an 11% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate). In 2010, European Earth Observation satellite imagery sales totaled 165 million, while in 2011 the market generated approximately 230 million. The commercial Earth Observation midstream sector will see a growing market for emerging countries, while Europe is expected to grow at 9% CAGR, maintaining approx. 15% share 27. The breakthrough technologies that ATTRACT will be able to generate could create new opportunities in the European manufacturing sectors. According to data from EFFRA 28 around one in ten of all enterprises in the EU-27 s non financial business economy were classified as manufacturing in 2009, a total of 2 million enterprises. The manufacturing sector employed 31 million people in 2009, generated 6 billion approx. of turnover and billion of value 24 Source: ASD Aerospace and Defense Industries Association of Europe 25 Source: Cefic, European Chemical Council SPIRE PPP roadmap 26 Source SPARC.
