How to Engage World Class Scientists at Leading Universities

With over $70bn in sales generated from products developed from the work of academic scientists at just 200 US institutions, it’s no surprise that companies are increasingly turning to academia to access these leading scientific and engineering minds for their R&D efforts. Partnering with universities can help companies cut costs and accelerate internal R&D, bringing exciting new products to market faster. When these strategic partnerships go well, they combine the innovation-driven environment of the corporation with the discovery-driven culture of the university. With that being said, there are fundamental differences between academia and corporations which can present challenges when building industry-university partnerships. In this report, we’ll address these differences and show you how to:

  • Identify the science and the scientists who would be most relevant to your company and its products
  • Build a long-term relationship that benefits both parties
  • Negotiate with the technology transfer office (TTO)

Digital Healthcare Report

The digital healthcare revolution has arrived. In 2017, the digital health industry was already worth $118bn globally, with the potential to cut healthcare costs by an estimated $7bn a year in the US alone.

Digital healthcare spans many disparate technologies, some of which are in the nascent research stages with the potential to massively disrupt the healthcare sector, and others that are already bringing significant benefits to patients and clinicians.

This whitepaper looks at three distinct areas of digital healthcare and investigates the benefits and challenges these technologies present to the wider medical industry.

Graphene: Wonder Material of the 21st Century

This latest report in the Innovation DB series looks at graphene. Isolated and characterised as recently as 2004, graphene is rapidly emerging as a hugely promising material in a wide variety of applications. The adoption of graphene could be a game-changer in electronics, energy generation, automotive, aerospace, healthcare, and water filtration to name a few. However, there are many challenges to be overcome before it can be put to use, causing many to ask when this revolutionary material will it be usable. This report includes an overview of graphene developments with examples of applications areas, their potential and investability, with forecasts for their adoption against technology development in a 2-, 5- and 10-year timeframe.

Imaging for the Future

The enormity of the changes in the field of imaging technology is hard to fathom. As cutting-edge techniques such as artificial intelligence integrate with technical innovations that both imaging hardware and software vendors are bringing to the market, several key trends are emerging in new modalities, methods and applications of imaging technologies.

This whitepaper looks at the state of the imaging market for three core imaging technology industries: surveillance, retail and transport. We investigate data processing techniques, case studies, future developments and applications, and perform a Five Forces Analysis for each of the three industries.
