  • Aborder de grands thèmes : l'innovation en période d'austérité et la formation des innovateurs scientifiques
  • Faire naître des idées : comment veiller à ce que l'innovation soit réellement valorisée et fasse l'objet d'investissements ?

Comment favoriser l'innovation en période d'austérité ? Qui la finance ? Le manque de fonds encourage-t-il l'inventivité ou entrave-t-il l'innovation du fait que tout le monde préfère jouer la sécurité ? Qu'en est-il des innovateurs de demain ? En faisons-nous assez pour encourager et soutenir les talents ?

Dans un contexte économique défavorable, l'innovation ne peut être sacrifiée. Il s'agit du poumon de la science, de la technologie et de l'économie. Il est urgent de mettre l'accent sur la meilleure façon dont nous pouvons promouvoir et favoriser l'innovation, que ce soit aujourd'hui ou demain.

C'est pourquoi l'édition 2012 du débat sur l'innovation, organisée et financée par Astellas Pharma Europe Ltd. et qui se tiendra à la Royal Society le 20 novembre 2012 à 16 h, réunira des personnalités influentes et respectées issues de milieux aussi variés que la science, la technologie, la médecine, l'ingénierie, l'éducation, le secteur public, l'industrie et les médias pour débattre sur le meilleur moyen d'encourager et de favoriser l'innovation scientifique.

Présidé par le professeur Jim Al-Khalili, physicien, auteur et présentateur, qui sera accompagné de divers intervenants, dont le professeur Sir Andre Geim, lauréat du prix Nobel de physique, Tudor Brown, cofondateur et ancien président de la société spécialisée dans la technologie ARM, le professeur Brian Cox, présentateur et physicien et le professeur Paul Workman, directeur général adjoint et responsable de la thérapeutique anticancéreuse à l'Institute for Cancer Research de Londres, le débat sur l'innovation sera l'occasion d'examiner la manière dont nous pouvons empêcher les pressions économiques et budgétaires que nous connaissons aujourd'hui de mettre en péril l'innovation pour les générations actuelles et futures.

L'objectif du débat sur l'innovation est d'aborder des questions cruciales, de tirer des conclusions positives et de faire avancer les choses.

Tout le monde, à savoir les professionnels des secteurs de la science et de la technologie, les étudiants et le grand public, aura la possibilité de prendre part au débat sur l'innovation par l'intermédiaire des médias en ligne. Ainsi, les discussions pourront avoir lieu bien au-delà des murs de la Royal Society.

« Le débat sur l'innovation est un événement ponctuel, » affirme le professeur Jim Al-Khalili. « Le monde de la science et de la technologie a besoin de se réapproprier le terme « innovation ». Comment pouvons-nous encourager l'innovation dans le contexte d'austérité que nous connaissons actuellement et comment pouvons-nous nous assurer que nous disposons des innovateurs de demain ? Nous devons nous interroger sur la manière dont nous pouvons maximiser nos chances de faire naître des idées novatrices chez nos scientifiques et technologues, ainsi que sur la manière dont nous devons former la prochaine génération de scientifiques et d'ingénieurs. »

« À l'instar de tous les autres domaines d'activité, la recherche scientifique est soumise à des pressions en matière de financement. Cela dit, si ses avantages économiques et sociétaux ne sont pas évidents au premier abord, quelles sont les répercussions, par exemple, d'une réduction du financement alloué à la recherche fondamentale ? Et en quoi cela pourrait être néfaste pour l'innovation ? Voilà le type de questions que nous évoquerons lors du débat sur l'innovation. »

Parmi les sujets sur lesquels nous débattrons le 20 novembre, nous pouvons citer les suivants : « comment innover dans un contexte d'austérité ? » et « quel est le meilleur moyen de favoriser l'innovation ? ».

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible.
