Commercialization of academic knowledge And Valorization In Regional Economic Development

Commercialization of academic knowledge And Valorization In Regional Economic Development | Innovación Social y Living Labs | Scoop.it

Description
The commercialization of academic knowledge is increasingly seen as a potential economic development model, particularly for improving the capabilities and economic performance of regions. This insightful volume investigates the emerging factors in knowledge commercialization from an international perspective and highlights research agendas and challenges to be met across academia, industry and government.

 

The commercialization of academic knowledge is increasingly seen as a potential economic development model, particularly for improving the capabilities and economic performance of regions. This insightful volume investigates the emerging factors in knowledge commercialization from an international perspective and highlights research agendas and challenges to be met across academia, industry and government.

The expert contributors focus specifically on the new role of universities in regional economic development through knowledge commercialization, as well as university-industry interaction and the factors that influence knowledge and technology transfer. They explore ‘knowledge commercialization’ in the US, ‘knowledge valorization’ in Europe, and technology transfer dynamics in China. A forum for discussion of whether, why, and how commercialization and valorization of knowledge can lead to higher levels of innovation and economic development from an international perspective is also provided.

This thought-provoking book will prove a stimulating read for academics, students and researchers with an interest in regional economics, regional studies and knowledge management.

Like it or not, but 20% of all page views on the web take place on Facebook. This is the place where ‘billions’ is a reality, with 3.2 billion ‘likes’ and comments posted every day. However, we should not forget the 300 million photos uploaded to the site each day. That’s 500 + TB of new data, which requires powerful hosting resources.

Social Innovation in Acceleration: Building the Social Impact Bond Ecosystem - Forbes

Social Innovation in Acceleration: Building the Social Impact Bond Ecosystem - Forbes | Innovación Social y Living Labs | Scoop.it

In 2009, The Rockefeller Foundation gave a grant to Social Finance UK to develop a then unknown innovative finance tool called the social impact bond.  Targeting the emerging impact investing sector, social impact bonds are an innovation aimed at using private dollars to invest in proven prevention-driven programs that were typically funded by the government.  If the service program is successful, the government will pay back the investor with interest.  Governments only pay for results and may save money, service providers can bring their programs to scale, and investors make a return – both financial and social – a win-win-win.

Fast forward just 4 years, and the concept of social impact bonds is being piloted in the UK, and has caught the attention of Mayors and Governors throughout the US – from Massachusetts, to San Francisco, to New York City and beyond.

Laughter Marks a Successful Culture of Innovation

Laughter Marks a Successful Culture of Innovation | Innovación Social y Living Labs | Scoop.it

America’s innovation edge has seen better days, with China now eclipsing the U.S. in areas such as patent applications, and several other countries showing signs of greater innovativeness than the U.S. What’s more, our down economy has caused many companies to tighten up operations and pull back from innovation initiatives — just when we need them the most. other countries showing signs of greater innovativeness than the U.S.

Reclaiming global competitive edge demands improved innovation throughout America’s businesses. But while stakes are high, creating a culture of innovation can and should still be fun. Building a culture of innovation is like setting small fires of positive change. Eventually they will take off throughout an organization.

Green Innovation: First Bio-building Powered by Algae Opens in Hamburg

Green Innovation: First Bio-building Powered by Algae Opens in Hamburg | Innovación Social y Living Labs | Scoop.it

The world's first algae-powered building is being piloted in Hamburg.

Designed by multinational firm Arup, features panel glass bioreactors on a facade containing microalgae that generate biomass and heat, serving as a renewable energy source.


The systems provide insulation for the building- 129 bioreactors have been fitted to the southwest and southeast faces of the building. They are controlled by an energy management center in which solar thermal heat and algae are harvested and stored to be used to create hot water.

 

Jan Wurm, Arup’s Europe Research Leader, said: 'Using bio-chemical processes in the facade of a building to create shade and energy is a really innovative concept. 

'It might well become a sustainable solution for energy production in urban areas, so it is great to see it being tested in a real-life scenario.'


The news comes after Arup announced their vision for the future of skyscrapers which suggested that buildings would be 'living' buildings powered by algae that respond automatically to the weather and the changing needs of inhabitants...

We are at this moment in history when we can say with certainty that open source hardware (OSHW) is economically viable. The video below tells the success story of Adafruit Industries. Barely formed, this business model relying on OSHW might already be obsolete. A new model, the open value network, is already threatening to transform the landscape of the open source economy. This article explains why.
