ACT-FAST. ACCELERATING DEEP DIFFUSION OF DIGITAL SECURITY SOLUTIONS IN HIGH VALUE MANUFACTURING (S)ME ECOSYSTEMS (H2020 RIA Submission 27 August 2020)

Summary

The vision of ACT-FAST is to establish, enable and accelerate learning communities, that share knowledge regarding digital security related incidents and risks, from TRL 3 to TRL 7. This will help members protect each other more robustly in SME/ME focused specific ecosystems. These communities will be enabled and supported by a decentralized open and free mobile technology solution. Community members autonomously control the degree of their anonymity. No sensitive information is made public and no sensitive information is stored.  The provided technology solution will be subject to a recurring “cyber safety and privacy” certification.

ECARDINALE. An ENTOV-HVM Education Proposal to the EIT Manufacturing to “Enable the Capability for Rapid Diffusion of Innovation in High Value Manufacturing” (Pre-Call Sketch submitted April 2020)

Summary

ECARDINALE aims to help strengthen Europe’s innovation capacity and at fostering innovation in higher education, business and the broader socio-economic environment of the EU by helping to disruptively accelerate the value creation from ideas in high value manufacturing (HVM) ecosystems from ideation to market saturation.

The aim will be achieved by designing, developing, and sustainably implementing an accredited virtual and open education offering to enable participants to rapidly diffuse innovations related to technology, processes, organizational design and culture from initial idea to becoming a household name across the iterative (living) innovation ecosystems as seen from a value network perspective. Courses will be suitable for face-to-face and / or hybrid delivery mechanisms which will subject to separate revenue sharing agreements.

This project aspires to qualify at least xxx individuals from industry and higher education to accelerate the diffusion of innovations from ideation to market saturation in high value manufacturing industries. This project further aspires to help create at least xxx (internal and / or external) start-up proposals as the result of a “capstone” course defining and launching a specific innovative venture aligned to EU strategies.

European Knowledge Alliance for Accelerating the Diffusion of Innovation in High Value Manufacturing Ecosystems (ADI-HVM) – 621364-EPP-1-2020-1-UK-EPPKA2-KA (Submitted February 2020)

Summary

ADI-HVM aims to strengthen Europe’s innovation capacity and at fostering innovation in higher education, business and the broader socio-economic environment of the EU. The expected outcome is to help disruptively accelerate the value creation from ideas in high value manufacturing (HVM) ecosystems from ideation to market saturation. This will be achieved by designing, developing, and sustainably implementing a career framework to generate new skills and capabilities in project, program management and entrepreneurism based upon principles of the Open Education Europe initiative.

HVM is the application of leading edge technical knowledge and expertise to the creation of products and associated services which have strong potential to bring sustainable growth and high economic value. Such potential is characterised by a combination of high R&D intensity and high growth typically found in industries such as aerospace and pharmaceuticals.

The career framework will be developed and implemented for higher education, vocational training and continuous professional development. The programme will consist of joint-accredited, stackable and micro-certified multi-disciplinary learning modules around an easy to use simulation and forecaster of innovation system behaviour and the path of ideas from ideation to market saturation. Liberal arts aspects will be integrated with key STEM principles.

ADI-HVM will furthermore create (a) an open, adaptive and inclusive community of applied learning and collaboration from a diverse set of higher education, business, and individuals, (b) a system dynamics simulator based on living systems principles, which enables the forecasting and monitoring of the end-to-end innovation journey and its value creation based on principles of intellectual capital reporting, (c) a set of actionable interventions for accelerating the speed of value creation, and (d) policy recommendations at individual, organizational, regional and EU levels.

Open European Network for ENTerprise InnOVation in High Value Manufacturing (ENTOV-HVM) – OC-2019-1-23678 (Submitted September 2019)

** This proposal PASSED evaluation with 36/50 points – threshold was 34/50 – but was not retained for funding. Revision and resubmission planned for October 2020. Evaluation results are available at https://innovation-web.eu/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Panel_Evaluation.pdf ***

Summary

Competitive advantage in high value manufacturing (HVM) industries, like aerospace and pharmaceuticals, is created by diffusing new ideas to market saturation as rapidly as possible. Examples are super-alloys and metal printing. Unfortunately the primary (in-) dependent variables and their dependencies affecting the speed of such remain unclear.

ENTOV-HVM aims to explore the factors affecting the speed of diffusion of innovation in high value manufacturing by using living systems based research methods. A multidisciplinary network of experienced innovation stakeholders, partnering with early career researchers and young innovators from COST Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITCs), will co-create and collaborate through techniques such as training, joint research-industry workshops, and Living Labs to help unravel the dynamics, drivers and game-changing events of innovation diffusion. Learning will be disseminated through these techniques, conference contributions, journal papers, and mini-conferences to inform policy developments and practice.

The Action will establish seven ITC-led workgroups (1) Success Stories: Mapping the innovation diffusion of successful historical HVM innovations, (2) Living Networks: Creating a reference-architecture and its simulation for game-changing exchanges in HVM innovation diffusion, (3) Disruptive Technology: Understanding how technology disruptively accelerates HVM innovation diffusion, (4) Disruptive Relationships: Understanding how human relationships disruptively accelerate HVM innovation diffusion, (5) Designing for Rapid Diffusion: Defining the optimal design of HVM ideas to diffuse in a “heart-beat”, (6) Innovation Automation: Establishing an online platform for simulating HVM innovation diffusion and (7) Event / Mission coordination.
