1 Technology Day on Research, Development & Innovation Dr Martin Hinoul Business Development Manager KU Leuven R&D Prague, October 19, 2009

2 From Productivity to Innovation

3 The New Economy or the knowledge economy regions

4 ? European Knowledge Economy Regions

5 Therefore innovation becomes extremeley important Innovation is important for economic growth: 50% since World War II 66% in the 90 s 90 % in the 21th century Lisbon 2010: Europe should bring the R&D effort from 2 to 3% A difficult mission ( a shortage of 110 billion Euro and a shortage of scientists and engineers) Finland 3,49% ; Nl 1,94%; UK 1,93%; Fr 2,2; It 1,07; Sp 0,97%; Po 0,65%; Ro 0,39%; Bg 0,47%.US 2,8%

8 Faster, Faster, Faster It requires wider collaboration across disciplines and specialties (multidisciplinary approach) The concept of intellectual property is being reexamined in the light of these collaborative demands It requires a wider collaboration of regions The trend is towards open innovation It requires a triple helix approach

9 But also an Entrepreneurial Society The rise of the entrepreneur, which has been gathering speed over the past 30 à 40 years, is not just about economics. It also reflects profound changes in attitudes to everything from individual careers to the social contract. It signals the birth of an entrepreneurial society -The Economist- March 14, 2009

10 Lisbon % of the active population should be employed 3% of the GDP should be spend on R&D And Europe should become the strongest Knowledge economy in the world

11 Innovation and Lisbon 2010 New faces Results?

12 Innovation requires the triple helix approach

13 The Triple Helix Is the complex between three actors The Government (s) The Industry The Knowledge Centers

14 The Triple Helix is based on: Knowledge creation Knowledge diffusion Knowledge exploitation
