The Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS (FFJ), is coorganizing with the OECD, a workshop on "Innovation policy in AI/IoT era: Investigating university industry collaboration 2.0". This workshop is organized in the framework of the 2017 CEAFJP Michelin Fellowship program. The CEAFJP (Centre d'étude avancées franco-japonais de Paris) workshops aim at presenting the research of the CEAFJP Fellows and stimulating dialogue among academia.
Digitalization has a transformative impact on innovation in firms and industry, where new business models are disrupting traditional industries. Ubiquitous IT infrastructure enables sharing goods services, big data analytics and AI technologies are used for condition based maintenance (CBM), by which industrial machinery producers such as GE can provide new value to their customers, and an advancement of automated driving technology may change the landscape of mobility related goods and services industry completely. This workshop puts together academia and industry people on review about recent scientific works on measuring digitalization of innovation, focusing on AI/IoT technologies, to facilitate discussion on the new style of public privation cooperation in innovation.
As the relative value of information (or “big data”) to physical products increases, and servitization of manufacturing industry progresses, the style of innovation becomes to be adaptive and flexible in changing environments. This calls for changes of the role of universities and PRIs (Public Research Institutions) in the innovation system. Such science sector does not provide only scientific findings as public goods, but also should play more active role in innovation ecosystem formation, by providing the field of rapid and interactive experimentation for industry.
This workshop puts together academia and industry people on review about recent scientific works on measuring digitalization of innovation, focusing on AI/IoT technologies, to facilitate discussion on the new style of public privation cooperation in innovation. The workshop will be build upon the research project on science based innovation under the Michelin fellowship of FFJ/EHESS, with the cooperation of “digital and open innovation” project of OECD.
