Join the upcoming innovation event "FT Innovation Dialogue 4 - Customer-centric Innovation" held in London, United Kingdom by Financial Times Live.

Our 4th Innovation Dialogue will take a practical look at how corporates are redesigning their innovation processes to bring customer intelligence from the outside, in.

Customer-centric innovation turns traditional innovation models inside-out. Conventionally, ideas are sought inside a company with the product and service innovations they produce delivered to customers outside the company.

Customer-centric innovation, conversely, takes some of this process outside, by collaborating with consumers in the external environment and spaces they inhabit and then bringing their ideas back in.

It’s not a new concept, but as businesses move from a transactional to experiential mindset to stay in tune with evolving consumer expectations, it is an increasingly popular one. It means lots more winning ideas, engenders brand loyalty, creates a sense of community, and reduces the risk of new products and services failing to thrive in the marketplace because they are not really what consumers want.

Workshop: Dissemination and Communication, Exploitation Participants will define the relevant target groups and the most appropriate dissemination and communication tools, channels and strategies for disseminating and communicating the results of the project with a view to maximizing its impact. Participants will draft the Expected Impact section and identify the best scenario for exploitation and IP strategy. Workshop: Budget; Finalising and submitting the proposal Participants will identify the efforts and resources to be committed for the project, with a focus on dissemination and exploitation to define a sound budget. By introducing a real proposal together with the relevant evaluation summary report, the participants will have a better understanding of the evaluators’ perspective and get prepared to evaluate a real proposal. Workshop: Evaluation of Proposals Participants will receive a full H2020 proposal and evaluate it. This simulation exercise begins with the briefing of the evaluators on the ‘call’ and the rules and procedures of the evaluation process. The evaluators will then conduct their individual assessment of the H2020 proposals, filling in their Individual Evaluation Reports (IER), after which they will gather with their fellow evaluators for consensus meetings. Once the consensus reports are drafted in each panel, final ranking will be established, which will serve as the basis for the allocation of budget amongst the highest ranked proposals.

Biotechnology involves the spectrum of life science-based research companies working on transformative technologies for a wide range of industries. The global biotechnology market is expected to reach USD 727.1 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The emergence of certain key themes in the biotechnology market is expected to drive growth in this industry to a lucrative extent. The biotechnology sector in Spain continues growing year after year. To a large extent, this is due to its transversal character, because more and more companies from different sectors incorporate biotechnology activities to their products and services.

There has been a growing increase of the turnover of biotechnology companies in the Spanish GDP. And that evolution has been constant, even in the years of the crisis. As evidence we have the values of 2014, year when that economic figure stood at 10.35%, and 2008, when biotechnology just supposed 2.98% of GDP. The value of 10.35% has even equalled digits of tourism in the country, one of the pillars of the Spanish economy. This type of biotechnology comprises approximately 50% of all biotech companies in Spain.

These companies are mainly engaged in products for human health, not only with regard to drugs, but also products and services related to molecular diagnostics, both to treat and to prevent disease. Currently, Spain ranks as the second country with the highest number of biotechnology-related companies in the world, only behind the United States. In addition, Spain is leader in personalized medicine and in the development of innovative drugs for the treatment of cancer, Alzheimer's disease, autoimmune and infectious diseases, ranking among the top ten European countries in drug development.

Join the upcoming innovation event "FT Innovation Dialogue 5 - The Change Challenge" held in London, United Kingdom by Financial Times Live. 

Discover how innovation leaders are implementing change in their companies to reduce red-tape and to cultivate a more inclusive workplace environment - one in which new ideas can flower, and through which innovation can easily flow.

Ideas, the raw material of innovation, are everywhere. The danger is that we end up looking in the same places for them all the time. Good ideas aren’t exclusive to the C-suite. Those further down the ranks are often closer to the technology and cultural shifts that are taking place, and can provide great insights as well.

But workforces, like the management that governs them, can be blighted by homogeny: everyone is just like everyone else. In the sphere of ideas and creativity, homogeny begets more of the same. More of the same is an enemy of innovation. Bureaucracy (ideas get stuck) and hierarchy (ideas don’t get seen) are enemies of innovation.

How can innovation leaders implement structural change to reduce red-tape, make decision-making more horizontal and cultivate a more inclusive workplace environment - one in which new ideas can flower, and through which innovation can easily flow. What are the technologies that might help facilitate this? And, crucially, how can the power at the center get out of the way of the exciting new ideas happening at the edge?

On 26 & 27 April 2018, London will host the 16th Biosimilar Medicines conference. This year’s flagship event will gather top EU and global regulators, officials, healthcare actors as well as industry leaders, to foster open exchange and debate on the role of the biosimilar medicines sector in “Biosimilar Medicines: Unlocking the Full Potential of Biologics”. Over two days, participants will dive into a dynamic programme – a crossroads between technical, scientific, market discussions and the overarching healthcare policy agenda. With 15 years of experience-sharing on scientific assessment, regulatory approval and the introduction of biosimilar medicines in clinical practice, this conference will take us to new uncharted waters in preparing for this new era. Biosimilar medicines have been game changers in the therapeutic areas where they have been used (e.g. rheumatology, gastroenterology) with positive benefits on access to treatment, and therefore on patient outcomes. They are about to enter cancer patient pathways where the anticipated benefits will represent a unique opportunity for re-investment in needed healthcare products and services.

07 February, 2018 - 07 February, 2018

Barcelona, Spain

¡Ya está en marcha la KIMconference 2018, que tendrá lugar el 7 de febrero en Barcelona! En esta edición debatiremos sobre los diferentes modelos de redes colaborativas que existen en innovación. Profundizaremos en los ecosistemas de innovación: colaboración entre grandes empresas y startups, la intra-emprendimiento o nuevos modelos de economía colaborativa para dar respuestas a preguntas como: ¿Cuáles son los retos de conexión entre las entidades claves en innovación? ¿Qué problemas debemos afrontar en la colaboración entre start-ups, grandes corporaciones y universidades? ¿Qué herramientas e iniciativas están implantando los actores de este ecosistema para impulsar iniciativas de los propios trabajadores? Lo haremos a través de una jornada informal que contará con debates de calidad, diálogos y talleres, con un formato más dinámico y sin encorsetar. También la participación será uno de los ejes más importante de este evento. El horario del acto central será de 9 a 14h aproximadamente, y por la tarde habrá la opción de asistir a diferentes workshops (previa inscripción). Las empresas confirmadas son: HP, Repsol, YouNoodle, Danone, Hitachi, BlaBlaCar, Acciona, SocialCar, Aigües de Barcelona, Induct, Ship2b, PARC Barcelona y Cooltra. Este año queremos convertir la KIMconference en una comunidad de búsqueda de tendencias y fuentes de formación en innovación, que nos permita transmitir buenos contenidos y aprender con expertos de varios sectores, ampliando nuestra red colaborativa.
