  • Diskussion großer Themen: Die Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung und wie wir wissenschaftliche Innovatoren fördern können
  • Ideen entwickeln: Wie stellen wir sicher, dass der Wert der Innovation geschätzt und Investitionen getätigt werden

Wie fördern wir Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung? Wer finanziert sie? Fördert Geldmangel Erfindungsreichtum oder wird Innovation gebremst, weil alle auf Nummer sicher gehen? Und wie steht es mit den Innovatoren der Zukunft? Tun wir genug, um ihr Talent zu fördern und zu unterstützen?

In Zeiten schwieriger wirtschaftlicher Bedingungen darf die Innovation nicht geopfert werden. Sie ist das Herzblut der Wissenschaft, Technologie und der Wirtschaft. Der Fokus muss dringend auf die Frage gerichtet werden, wie Innovation am besten gefördert und entwickelt werden kann - heute und in der Zukunft.

Darum versammelt die Innovationsdebatte 2012 - organisiert und finanziert von Astellas Pharma Europe Ltd. - einflussreiche und anerkannte Persönlichkeiten aus der Welt der Wissenschaft, Technologie, Medizin, Technik, Bildung, Regierung, Industrie und aus den Medien, um zu diskutieren, wie die wissenschaftliche Innovation am besten angekurbelt und gefördert werden kann.

Unter dem Vorsitz des Physikers, Autors und Fernsehmoderators Professor Jim Al-Khalili und mit Experten wie dem Nobelpreisträger und Physiker Professor Sir Andre Geim, dem Mitbegründer und ehemaliger Präsident des Technologieunternehmens ARM Tudor Brown, dem Fernsehsprecher und Physiker Professor Brian Cox, dem Gründer von Lottolab Dr. Beau Lotto und dem stellvertretenden Leiter und Leiter der Abteilung für Krebstherapeutik am Institut für Krebsforschung London Professor Paul Workman wird die Innovationsdebatte untersuchen, auf welche Art sich am besten verhindern lässt, dass der aktuelle wirtschaftliche und finanzielle Druck die Innovation für die heutige und für zukünftige Generationen in Gefahr bringt.

Ziel der Innovationsdebatte ist es, wesentliche Themen zu erörtern, positive Schlussfolgerungen zu ziehen und die Agenda nach vorne zu bringen.

Jedermann - Fachleute aus Wissenschaft und Technik, Studenten und die allgemeine Öffentlichkeit - wird Gelegenheit haben, über Online-Medien aktiv an der Innovationsdebatte teilzunehmen, so dass sie weit über die Mauern der Royal Society hinaus reichen wird.

"Die Innovationsdebatte ist eine zeitgemäße Veranstaltung", erklärt Professor Jim Al-Khalili. "Die Welt der Wissenschaft und Technik muss das Wort 'Innovation' selbst für sich zurück erobern. Wie können wir also in der heutigen Zeit der Entbehrung Innovation fördern - und wie stellen wir sicher, dass wir die Innovatoren der Zukunft haben? Wir müssen darüber nachdenken, wie wir die Chancen, dass unsere Wissenschaftler und Techniker innovative Ideen entwickeln, maximieren können und wie die nächste Generation von Wissenschaftlern und Technikern ausgebildet werden sollte."

"Wie jedes andere Unterfangen steht die wissenschaftliche Forschung unter finanziellem Druck - aber was wären die Auswirkungen z.B. einer Senkung der Finanzierung der Grundlagenforschung, nur weil ihr wirtschaftlicher oder sozialer Nutzen nicht unmittelbar ersichtlich ist? Und wie würde die Innovation im Ergebnis darunter leiden? Dies sind die Art von Fragen, die wir bei der Innovationsdebatte erörtern werden."

In der Expertendebatte am 20. November wird es unter anderem um die Frage gehen "Wie gestalten wir die Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung?" und "Wie können wir Innovation am besten fördern?"

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
