State of Innovation in Asia-Pacific

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

As the dynamics of the global innovation ecosystem continues to shift with the rise of China, interest in Asia-Pacific has never been greater. While historical powerhouses, such as Japan and Korea, continue to innovate at their reputable rates, China's nationa initiatives as well as the flow of their capital into the surrounding areas - Southeast Asia and India - will likely spur the rise of new innovation ecosystems. In this report we take a look at the key hotspots for innovation, identifying the major players in the powerhouses, as well as finding hidden gems in the less thought about countries.

Digitizing the fight against diabetes: From therapy to prevention

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

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

In this report we approach the digital management of diabetes by looking at the complete health spectrum from healthy to severely diseased individuals and highlight unmet needs and opportunities that digital health developers should take advantage of. We also highlight how these strategies should consider underlying differences, from molecular to cultural, when addressing different markets and regions.

How to Form a Materials Informatics Strategy

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

Materials informatics applies data science and AI methods to better understand the use, selection, development, and discovery of materials. As an emerging technology with strong momentum during the past year, it is used across the value chain, from upstream materials and chemicals developers to downstream product manufacturers. In this report, we provide a comprehensive understanding of the key players and their activities in this space. Specifically, we will review different application areas, data challenges, and recent developments from both startups and large corporations. We also provide our vision on the near future of how materials informatics will expand from materials to parts and products, from working with a few R&D units to establishing a whole platform for each part of the value chain. Finally, we discuss why clients across the value chain should overcome the data-sharing fear to work on materials informatics. We also propose three strategies to engage with materials informatics and advise on how to form a strategy that works the best.

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: April 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.

Organizing for Digital

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: May 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?

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.

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.
