    Have you ever heard of Tall Poppy Syndrome? It essentially says that the flower which stands out above all the rest will be the first to be cut down. Basically, it says that people should be humble and not try to make themselves appear better than others. While this particular saying dates from ancient Greece [...]

  • Latest Conference Research on Innovation Ecosystems
    by Joel West on July 3, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    On June 18-19, we were scheduled to hold an ecosystem conference in Copenhagen, at the end of the annual DRUID conference. The conference was for papers being developed for a special issue of Research Policy, entitled “Innovation Ecosystems and Ecosystem Innovation.” Alas, disease, travel restrictions and economic collapse cancelled those plans.Instead we held an online conference, modeled on the earlier 2012 conference for the Open Innovation special issue of Research Policy.With the online conference, we had the same guest editors as originally planned: Carliss Baldwin, Marcel Bogers, Rahul Kapoor and Joel West. As with the original conference plans — and the 2012 conference for the earlier SI — the goal was to have a developmental workshop, to both highlight good work and improve the quality of the eventual submissions.KeynotesThe conference had three keynotes. As noted previously, the two keynotes on Friday focused on publishing in Research Policy and in the special issue.Thursday’s opening keynote by Carliss Baldwin was provocatively entitled “A Scientific Theory of Ecosystems (and Platforms).” Not surprisingly, it provided a sneak peak into the ecosystems chapter of her forthcoming Design Rules (Volume 2), which is being released in chapter form on SSRN.PapersWe also invited presentation of the same 22 papers accepted for the originally planned for a face to face conference. They were presented in eight sessions in two parallel tracks across the two days.Maksim Belitski, Gimme Shelter or Fade Away: Innovation Ecosystems, Firm Productivity and InnovationFederica Ceci, Ecosystem Dynamics and Platform Survival: An Empirical Investigation of Anonymous Online BlackmarketsCarmelo Cennamo , Distinguishing Between Platforms and Ecosystems: Complementarities, Value Creation and Coordination MechanismsMaria Halbinger, Fixing Your 3D Printer: How Community-Based Ecosystems Solve Tool-Related Problems and Enable InnovationMarianne Harbo Frederiksen, The Birth of an Innovation Ecosystem: An Engagement Intensity Approach to the Danish Drone EcosystemJianxi Luo, An Entrepreneur’s Ecosystem Strategy: Suntech and the Rise of a New Solar PV Ecosystem in ChinaMilan Miric, How Does Competition Influence the Innovative Effort of Self-Rewarded Innovators?

  • Publishing in a Research Policy special issue
    by Joel West on June 25, 2020 at 4:36 am

    Research Policy remains the top journal in innovation studies, and the only one in the FT 50 list. For readers who haven’t published in RP (or published recently), I thought I would summarize two conference talks last week about how to publish in RP.Last Thursday and Friday, Carliss Baldwin, Marcel Bogers, Rahul Kapoor and I cohosted a conference for our planned RP special issue on “Innovation Ecosystems and Ecosystem Innovation”. It was originally intended to be in Copenhagen after the end of DRUID, but — like so much else this year — it was forced online by the pan(ic)demic and associated travel restrictions.As with the earlier 2014 SI, this team of four guest editors is working with a specific member of the journal’s 13-member board of editors. For this special issue, Ammon Salter will be enforcing RP standards as the so-called Lead Editor. On Friday, both Ammon and I (based mainly on my 2014 experience) talked about publishing in Research Policy.Ammon Salter: “Introduction to Research Policy”Ammon started with a review of RP and its impact (probably redundant for a virtual room full of scholars who are eager to publish in RP). This included its rankings in the ABS and FT lists, as well as the Google Scholar ranking of innovation and entrepreneurship where RP is #1, well ahead of a virtual dead heat between ETP/JBV/SBE).Among some of the general advice:have a central focus on innovation/technology questionsdon’t cite articles based on their journal ranking (i.e. only “A” journals) rather than where the most relevant research is publishedavoid a “utopian” view of the theory or phenomenonFor the special issue, Ammon emphasized the importance of making a contribution relevant to a general innovation audience — in addition to any contribution(s) to the topic of the special issue.There was a bit of a disagreement with the audience over Ammon’s claim that “RP does not require a strong theoretical contribution”; the conclusion of one attendee (consistent with my own) is that whether or not the editors demand such theory, the current batch of reviewers certainly do so.In response, Ammon revised his statement: “If the paper is poorly informed by theory, that’s a problem.” This I believe is an apt summary of what I saw in 5+ years as a special issue editor (and briefly RP AE): no matter how strong or weak the novelty of the contribution, if the paper isn’t anchored to (“informed by”) theory, it won’t be published in a good journal.Joel West: “Publishing in the RP Special Issue”In my own talk, I summarized the guest editors’ goals Integrate, synthesize ecosystem researchAttract new authors, insights, contributionsMake ecosystems visible to broader innovation communityAfter reviewing the submission process, I projected how we would apply RP and other top journal principles to the editing of the special issues. Below are 4 slides, which includes my general concerns about qualitative methods:Since the conference, we have posted a FAQ with updated guidelines for special issue submission.Clarity Above AllOne topic produced unanimity among the editorial team:Ammon: “Have a clear story to tell — one that you could tell in a 2-minute elevator pitch.’Carliss: “The greatest sin is to confuse your reader. A linear flow is essential across and within paragraphs.”In my (brief) time as an AE, I developed a sloganIf you don’t know what your paper is about, how are we supposed to know?Clearly clarity is valued by the editor, by reviewers and of course by the eventual readers of the journal. I am still amazed when I find a virtually unreadable paper in a respectable (“B”/“B+”) innovation journal: how did this paper make it through the process?If you look at our 2014 special issue — edited by West, Salter, Vanhaverbeke and Chesbrough — we at least got this part right. The papers differ somewhat in their impact, but I think if you look at every single paper, it’s clear what the paper is trying to accomplish and what evidence was used to achieve that result. 

  • Research Opportunities for Network Forms of OI
    by Joel West on June 21, 2019 at 10:48 pm

    At #RnDParis2019 Thursday, I gave a “master class” on the network forms of open innovation: alliances, communities, crowds, consortia, ecosystems and platforms. It was a standing room only session: it appears that there are a lot of innovation researchers (particularly those new in their careers) who want to learn more about this area and the research opportunities.Interest in the network form of OI began with Wim Vanhaverbeke’s chapters in our 2006 book, Open Innovation: Researching a New Paradigm. I extended the idea with a chapter in our 2014 book, New Frontiers in Open Innovation. In several other papers (West et al 2006, 2014; West & Bogers, 2014), we noted the emphasis of OI research on dyadic collaboration between firms, and the dearth of research on OI in platforms, ecosystems, and so on.There are many opportunities both for network research informed by OI, and using OI to inform one or more of the network forms of interorganizational cooperation.My slides are up on Slideshare. I welcome any feedback or questions.ReferencesJoel West and Marcel Bogers, “Leveraging External Sources of Innovation: A Review of Research on Open Innovation,” Journal of Product Innovation Management, 31, 4 (July 2014): 814-831. DOI: 10.1111/jpim.12125Joel West, Wim Vanhaverbeke and Henry Chesbrough, “Open Innovation: A Research Agenda,” in Henry Chesbrough, Wim Vanhaverbeke and Joel West, eds., Open Innovation: Researching a New Paradigm, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2006, pp. 285-307.Joel West, Ammon Salter, Wim Vanhaverbeke, Henry Chesbrough, “Open innovation: The next decade,” Special Issue on Open Innovation: New Insights and Evidence, Research Policy, 43, 5 (June 2014): 805-811. DOI: 10.1016/j.respol.2014.03.001

  • Reviewing research on 3D Printing
    by Joel West on June 19, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    At #RnDParis2019 today, I presented an updated overview of the business and economic research on #3Dprinting — almost all in the past five years. The talk was part of two 3DP sessions within the 2019 R&D Management Conferece hosted by Thierry Rayna, Frank Piller & I. They were also the follow up to the 2019 3D printing workshop hosted at École Polytechnique and the 2014 workshop held at RWTH Aachen.The talk covered these themesHistory of 3D printing industry (from West & Kuk, 2016)Some stats on management/business research on 3D printingIdeas and suggestions on how 3D printing research could have more impactMy slides have been uploaded to SlideShare. The full list of references is found as a Google Doc here. Please send me any corrections (although I will filter the list for business/econ publications).Existing PublicationsUsing SSCI business/management papers I found 82 papers that mention "3D printing" or "3D printers" in the topic. Interestingly, 30% of the SSCI citations are to the 17 papers in Technology Forecasting and Social Change, most to the January 2016 special issue on 3D printing. (I have the unviable claim to have published the least cited paper in the special issue — a case study on Makerbot).Having a Greater ImpactToday I repeated a call I made at last year’s workshop. In it, I encouraged scholars — or at least those who need to make careers at status-conscious universities — to have more rigorous research that can be published in the top journals:Strong empiricsStronger theory, more general contributionGet beyond the phenomenonThe latter point is to have an impact beyond 3D printing research. I cited two literatures where I’ve contributed (but much later than others) to finding implications beyond the industry and phenomenon:Open source: Managing online communities; Coordinating, governing decentralized production; Fine-tuning degrees of opennessCrowdsourcing: Matching seekers/solvers; Motivating contributors; Optimizing collaboration modelsHow far has 3D printing come so far? In my database of 3D printing articles, I found 7 papers in either FT or near-FT journals:Ben-Ner & Siemsen, “Decentralization and Localization of Production: The Organizational and Economic Consequences of Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing),” California Management Review, 2017Garmulewicz et al, “Disruptive Technology as an Enabler of the Circular Economy: What Potential Does 3D Printing Hold?” California Management Review, 2018Unruh, “Circular Economy, 3D Printing, and the Biosphere Rules,” California Management Review, 2018d’Aveni, “The 3-D printing revolution,” Harvard Business Review, 2015Rindfleisch et al, “The Digital Revolution, 3D Printing, and Innovation as Data,” Journal of Product Innovation Management, 2017Kyriakou et al, “Knowledge Reuse For Customization: Metamodels In An Open Design Community For 3D Printing,” MIS Quarterly, 2017Greul et al, “Open at birth? Why new firms do (or don't) use open innovation,” Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, 2018#1-5 are really about managerial implications of 3D printing: something of interest that needs to be published, but most will have limited influence beyond 3D printing.#6 is about Thingiverse, and contributes to the literature on knowledge sharing and reuse in online communities (a recent topic of interest by MISQ).#7 is the paper that I, Anne Greul and Simon Bock first presented at the 2014 workshop (where it was just a research plan with no data). It is about how startup companies use inbound open innovation to launch their firms, and how they practice selective revealing: the sample is of startup 3D printer manufacturers.By comparison, the first special issue on open source (Research Policy June 2003) was about the phenomenon — with modest methods. The second special issue (Management Science July 2006) was about better methods and (in some cases) a more direct contribution to generalizable theory.

  • How Patents Enable Mavericks and Challenge Incumbents
    by Jonathan Barnett on January 24, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    Advocates for “patent reform” have long argued that reducing patent protection will open up markets and accelerate innovation by lowering entry barriers and expanding access to existing technologies. Yet, over 15 years of patent reform since the landmark 2006 decision in eBay, Inc. v. MercExchange LLC, followed by enactment of the America Invents Act in 2011, we have witnessed the rise of a technology ecosystem led by a handful of dominant platforms. In my recently published book, Innovators,...

I’m fine with the outer layer of the sphere breaking but fresh ideas would be appreciated.

  • A Gaming-Dating app
    by /u/acousticguac on January 22, 2021 at 2:52 am

    Alright hear me out. I was in the Apex lobby scrolling through hinge when I was like huh I could probably get to know these people a lot better if I could invite them into my party or something and then it OCCURRED TO ME: what if there was an app that incorporated video games with getting to know new people. My first proposal is a battle royale game that pairs you up with compatible people in your area. Wether you win or lose, at the end of the round you get to choose whether you want to play another round with them or get a new partner. I feel like there’s less pressure while getting to know someone if you’re working together to achieve the same task. My second, more realistic, proposal is the same idea but tailored towards a broader audience. Picture bumble or tinder, but with little mini-games built in, similar to game pigeon (Checkers, darts, connect 4, battleship, etc). Its a fun way to fire up a conversation that seems to be running a little dry and gives you something to do together other than just text. I just think it would spice up the regular dating apps we have and release the anxiety some users may have when it comes to texting strangers. submitted by /u/acousticguac [link] [comments]

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 11: Low Latency 5G Distributed Wireless Network Architecture: A Techno-Economic Comparison
    by Ibrahim Alhassan Gedel on January 24, 2021 at 12:00 am

    The most profound requirements of fifth-generation (5G) technology implementations are the architecture design and the radio base station technology to capably run applications such as device-to-device, machine-to machine and internet of things at a reduced latency. Owing to these requirements, the implementation of 5G technology is very expensive to mobile network operators (MNO). In this study we modified the existing 4G network to form a distributed wireless network architecture (DWNA); the picocell and distributed antenna system were modified to support the enabling technology of 5G technology were a multi-edge computer (MEC), software-defined networking (SDN), massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO), ultra-dense network (UDN), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and device-to-device (D2D) communication at a reduced cost of ownership, improved coverage and capacity. We present a mathematical model for operational expenditure, capital expenditure and total cost of ownership (TCO) for the DWNA. A mathematical model for DWNA capacity and throughput was presented. Result shows that it is very economical for MNO to rent the space of the tower infrastructure from tower companies. The sensitivity analysis also shows a significant reduction in TCO for both the modified picocell and modified distributed antenna systems.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 10: Adaptive Stochastic Filtration Based on the Estimation of the Covariance Matrix of Measurement Noises Using Irregular Accurate Observations
    by Sergey Sokolov on January 21, 2021 at 12:00 am

    In measurement systems operating under various disturbances the probabilistic characteristics of measurement noises are usually known approximately. To improve the observation accuracy, a new approach to the Kalman’s filter adaptation is proposed. In this approach, the Covariance Matrix of Measurement Noises (CMMN) is estimated by accurate measurements detected irregularly by the mobile object observation system (from radiofrequency identifiers, etalon reference, fixed points etc.). The problem of adaptive estimation of the observer’s noises covariance matrix in the Kalman filter is solved analytically for two cases: mutual noises correlation, and its absence. The numerical example for adaptive filtration of complexing navigation system parameters of a mobile object using irregular accurate measurements is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm. Coordinate estimating errors have changed in comparison with the traditional scheme from 100 m to 2 m in latitude, and from 200 m to 1.5 m in longitude.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 9: Analysis of Oscillating Combustion for NOx−Reduction in Pulverized Fuel Boilers
    by Nicklas Jolibois on January 19, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Thermal power plants in different fields are regularly adapted to the state-of-the-art emissions standards, applying “The Best Available Techniques Reference”. Since 2016 in the power plant area new, more stringent limits for power plant units with a thermal output of more than 300 MW operated with black coal are valid. Usually, in order to reach the new limits e.g., for NOX emissions, downstream reduction processes (Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction, SNCR or Selective Catalytic Reduction) are applied, which use of operating resources (essentially ammonia water) thereby increase. By the means of an experimentally validated process, by which pulverized fuel is fed by oscillation through a swirl burner into a pilot combustion chamber with a thermal output of 2.5 MW, nitrogen oxides can be reduced without further activities, for instance from 450 mg/mN3 in non-oscillation operation mode (0 Hz) to 280 mg/mN3 in oscillation operation mode (3.5 Hz), normalized to an O2–content of 6% each. These findings were patented in EP3084300. Particularly promising are the experiments which utilize oscillation of a large portion of the burn out air instead of the fuel in order to minimize the fatigue of the pulverized fuel oscillator, amongst others. Thereby, the nitrogen conversion rate, which describes the ratio of NOX to fuel nitrogen, including thermal NOX can be reduced from 26% for non-oscillation operation mode down to 16%. The present findings show that fuel oscillation alone is not sufficient to achieve nitrogen oxides concentrations below the legislative values. Therefore, a combination of different primary (and secondary) measures is required. This paper presents the experimental results for oscillating coal-dust firing. Furthermore, an expert model based on a multivariate regression is developed to evaluate the experimental results.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 8: Measurement of Multiple Cardiac Performance Endpoints in Daphnia and Zebrafish by Kymograph
    by Kevin Adi Kurnia on January 17, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death worldwide. This condition resulted in huge research on CVD increasing the need for animal models suitable for in vivo research. Daphnia and zebrafish are good animal models for cardiovascular research due to their relative body transparency and easy culture property. Several methods have been developed to conduct cardiac performance measurement in Daphnia and zebrafish. However, most of the methods are only able to obtain heartbeat rate. The other important cardiac endpoints like stroke volume, ejection fraction, fraction shortening, cardiac output, and heartbeat regularity must use other programs for measurement. To overcome this limitation, in this study, we successfully developed a one-stop ImageJ-based method using kymograph macros language that is able to obtain multiple cardiac performance endpoints simultaneously for the first time. To validate its utility, we incubated Daphnia magna at different ambient temperatures and exposed zebrafish with astemizole to detect the corresponding cardiac performance alterations. In summary, the kymograph method reported in this study provides a new, easy to use, and inexpensive one-stop method obtaining multiple cardiac performance endpoints with high accuracy and convenience.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 7: Grading of Scots Pine Seeds by the Seed Coat Color: How to Optimize the Engineering Parameters of the Mobile Optoelectronic Device
    by Arthur I. Novikov on January 15, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Research Highlights: There is a problem of forest seeds quality assessment and grading afield in minimal costs. The grading quality of each seed coat color class is determined by the degree of its separation with a mobile optoelectronic grader. Background and Objectives: Traditionally, pine seeds are graded in size, but this can lead to a loss of genetic diversity. Seed coat color is individual for each forest seed and is caused to a low error in identifying the genetic features of seedling obtained from it. The principle on which the mobile optoelectronic grader operates is based on the optical signal detection reflected from the single seed. The grader can operate in scientific (spectral band analysis) mode and production (spectral feature grading) mode. When operating in production mode, it is important to determine the optimal engineering parameters of the grader that provide the maximum value of the separation degree of seed-color classes. For this purpose, a run of experiments was conducted on the forest seeds separation using a mobile optoelectronic grader and regression models of the output from factors were obtained. Materials and Methods: Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) seed samples were obtained from cones of the 2019 harvest collected in a natural stand. The study is based on the Design of Experiments theory (DOE) using the Microsoft Excel platform. In each of three replications of each run from the experiment matrix, a mixture of 100 seeds of light, dark and light-dark fraction (n = 300) was used. Results: Interpretation of the obtained regression model of seed separation in the visible wavelength range (650–715 nm) shows that the maximum influence on the output—separation degree—is exerted by the angle of incidence of the detecting optical beam. Next in terms of the influence power on the output are paired interactions: combinations of the wavelength with the angle of incidence and the wavelength with the grader’s seed pipe height. The minimum effect on the output is the wavelength of the detecting optical beam. Conclusions: The use of a mobile optoelectronic grader will eliminate the cost of transporting seeds to and from forest seed centers. To achieve a value of 0.97–1.0 separation degree of Scots pine seeds colored fractions, it is necessary to provide the following optimal engineering parameters of the mobile optoelectronic grader: the wavelength of optical radiation is 700 nm, the angle of incidence of the detecting optical beam is 45° and the grader’s seed pipe height is 0.2 m.
