How Digitally-Driven R&D Consortia Will Impact the Chemicals and Materials Industry

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: October 2019

New digitally driven tools – including advanced modeling and simulation, high-throughput screening, and materials informatics – are increasingly mature in the chemicals and materials space. While these tools are powerful and complementary, the data0centric nature makes them more valuable when companies form collaborations within or across the value chain. In addition, structural issues like long regulatory timelines still slow the process of bringing new products to market. This report looks to the pharmaceutical industry to understand how the chemicals and materials industry can form consortia to both better utilize these tools and overcome these structural challenges, and gives an outlook on the future of chemicals and materials R&D.

China's Public, Private, People Approach to Innovation

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: November 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.

Connecting the Dots: The Impact of Industrial and Power Decarbonization on Gas Demand

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: December 2019

Natural gas is often touted as the fuel that will power the ongoing energy transition. Several energy companies such as Shell, Total, and Qatar Petroleum have committed to expand their gas and LNG businesses, with the latter even quitting OPEC in its pursuit for gas. However, as industrial demand sectors such as power, steel manufacturing, paper, residential heating, gradually move towards disruptive, low carbon solutions such as hydrogen, heat pumps, and electric heating, the outlook for gas needs to be revisited. In this report, we connect the dots between the various pieces of the broader energy system, and analyse the collateral impact of emerging technologies on the global gas and LNG markets in the near future.

Automating the Last Mile

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: December 2019

The rise of e-commerce platforms and subsequent demise of several well-known retails stores including Sears is itself a testament to the disruptive power of technology. As more packages are shipped around the world than ever before, many are asking how to move packages cheaper and quicker. The “last mile” – the last part of the delivery process to a final destination – is the biggest opportunity for innovation as it is the most challenging and expensive part of delivery, often through complex environments and comprising as much as 50% of total shipping costs. This webinar will analyze the landscape of last-mile technologies – ranging from drones to mobile robots and more – to identify which ones are worth the investment and which are doomed to fail.
