  • 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 ? ».

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
