Technology

Ubiquitous Sensing

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

As commoditized sensors become cheaper and offer improved performance they can now be more readily incorporated into new applications and devices that were previously not feasible. These always-on sensors in consumer and industrial environments will allow for continuous monitoring, all while being transparent and not interfering with individuals daily activities.

Regional BBMC Trends

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

This report will explore bio-based materials and chemicals (BBMC) trends globally and analyze how regulations are impacting technology development and adoption.

Genomics in agriculture

Coverage Areas: Agro Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: April 2019

Big data in agriculture was initially synonymous with "precision agriculture," however the rise of genomics and other informatics tools are fundamentally changing the roles DNA and data play in agriculture. (This report will be the first of a "Genomics in X" series, building on the "Power of DNA" report/webinar)

Electronic Materials

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: April 2019

Materials innovation is driving the next wave of electronic devices, from flexible displays to ubiquitous sensors. We will survey the electronic materials innovation landscape to understand what materials will enable these devices, and when the materials will be ready for market.

Food Value Chain CVC Comparison

Coverage Areas: Consumer Choices in Food, Health, and Wellness

Planned Publication Date: Q2 2019

Food companies have become more serious about their commitments to supporting start-up innovation efforts through the formation of numerous corporate VC groups - and their investments have been widely varied in scope. This report will assess the landscape of those funds, demonstrating the winning approaches.

Pinching the Funnel: How China's Public, Private, People Approach to Innovation Makes it a Global Force

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q2 2019

In recent years China is continuously challenging the West for the top spot on the global innovation leader board. With a face-paced innovation process that is counter intuitive to the traditional stage-gate approach developed and deployed in the West, China is quickly transforming itself into a global innovation leader - shedding its dated copycat stereotype and quickly transforming into the copied. At the root of this success is the fast changing socio-economic trends coupled with access to cutting edge technologies. In a unique public-private-people partnership, the government, private sector, and the masses together are enabling the country in bringing new innovations into the market at lighting speed.

Organizing for Digital

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: Q2 2019

Many companies are trying to embark on their digital transformation. However, success rates are not that high; estimates indicate that more than 80% of digital transformation projects fail. While there are many determining factors for success, one of them is the structure of the organization and the culture within an organization. Interestingly, with the arrival of digital, companies also need to re-imagine their traditional structures. How can companies organize themselves to ensure success in their digital transformation efforts? What type of a culture should they build? With the arrival of digital, what should the org structure look like to ensure success in the future?

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: Q2 2019

The industrial sector is responsible for 21% of global CO2 emissions and will be the hardest to decarbonize due to its intrinsic need for carbon feedstock and high thermal requirements needs for process operations. However, the industry is coming under increasing pressure to innovate and adopt low-carbon solutions. In this report, we will examine the various technology options available for the industry to decarbonize its operations, and assess the opportunities and challenges that present exist for each technology option.
