smart specialization in lahti and in general
Smartspecialization in Lahti and in general
  • Technology and serviceprovider’spoint of view: Technologies and serviceconcepts (incl. design) generatesolutions for the enduser’sfutureneedsin new applicationareas
  • Enterprise’spoint of view: New technologies and serviceconcepts(incl. design) canbeadopted and utilizedby the companiesin theirconventionalapplicationarea
  • Opencluster is a practice-basedinnovationplatformfindingmatchbetweentech/serviceproviders and utilizer

Smartspecialization is based on activating R&D activitiestowardsfutureorientedleadmarketswhichutilizerelatedvariety of cross-cuttingcompetences, supportingindustry, and testmarkets

Short description of the case (2)

Innovation hub for environmental applications – design – practice-based innovations

  • A working four-way relationship, i.e. close interaction between businesses, universities, the public sector (incl. financiers) and customers
  • A firm metropolitan connection
  • What are the key challenges in the cluster/ domain and the region in international perspective for improving the differentiation of the region in growth areas
    • Low R&D investments in each sector
    • Few financing channels with a capability/interest in risk-taking
    • Underdeveloped innovation infrastructure
    • Creative economy too underdeveloped to match the potential
    • Little international education and active research cooperation
    • Linking vocational education to the development of the innovation environment
  • Main competitive advantages in the domain / region for smart specialisation
  • Combination of competences available
    • Wide-ranging environmental expertise;
    • Metal and mechatronics expertise;
    • Expertise associated with digital contents and e-learning;
    • Food industry expertise;
    • Expertise in industrial design;
    • Skills in practical innovation activities.
      • General Purpose Technologies available?
      • Connectivity: do linkages work well in the region and with global players?
technology transfer from mnes to smes as a source of smart specialization
TechnologytransferfromMNEs to SMEs as a source of smartspecialization
  • 60% of European innovative SMEs would be interested in acquiring or selling a patent or a license to develop their business
  • 60% of innovative SME attempts to acquire patented technology have failed
  • SME face particular barriers in engaging in the acquisition of patented technology, including:
      • Screening costs (locating technology)
      • Information costs (assessing usefulness)
      • Negotiating costs (valuation and negotiation)
      • Bundling costs (dealing with multiple sources of IP)

Assemblies

  • Technology is getting more complex
  • To innovate SME need access to more and more background technology
  • Can access a group of related technologies through one license
  • Assemblies by product area or technology area
  • 1 license to access all – significantly cheaper

Short description of the case
  • Description of the domain and policy level
  • The first phase of Smart Specialization consisted of the abandonment of the strategic industry sector emphasis.
  • The strategic combination of the new innovation philosophy with the top three areas of expertise leading to a novel innovation environment
  • Key players (+ leading actors) and international position
ambitions and strategic actions in the case in the coming year
Ambitions and strategic actions in the case in the coming year
  • Plans for new strategy development and new internationalisation
  • Methods and tools foreseen to implement the process of entrepreneurial discovery

the innovation policy package that serves

  • networks, or innosessio, innohaavi, innolinkki,
  • innoklubi, resource-based future research,
  • Living Lab and Innosteel, IDEALA etc.
  • Technology bank providing access to the global value chain
  • Interaction between government and cluster organisations (regional, national, international)
    • Regional: Regional government, Lahti city authorities
    • National stakeholders: OSKE program on enviroinment, Tekes as a national R&D funder
    • EU’s smart specialization agenda
  • Cross-border activities and cooperation foreseen
