    For most kids, being creative and imaginative is no problem. It seems to come naturally through play, exploration, and curiosity. You can probably even remember back to your own childhood and how effortless it seemed to come up with creative, fresh ideas no matter what you were doing. However, research has discovered that children may [...]

  • People never think of improving something by removing parts of it

At least, this is what an interesting new piece of research by Adams et al suggests, just published in the journal Nature. This has major implications for innovators in all types of companies, trying to find ways to make their products [...]

  • 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.

  • 5G RAN Developments: Landscape and Liability
    by Craig Thompson on April 20, 2021 at 4:15 pm

    Changes in the 5G radio access network (RAN) are likely to increase interest in monetizing patents essential to RAN equipment and operations (RAN SEPs). One of these changes is the significant increase in the volumes of equipment like radio units (RUs) expected over the next decade. For example, China alone plans to deploy 6 million 5G cells by 2027, at an average cell spend of $28,500. Other changes likely to spur 5G RAN licensing are the increase of new entrants to the RAN equipment market...

  • Some kind of Wikipedia for Debates / A Social Media Platform to Solve Problems
    by /u/zscan on April 19, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    So the general inpiration for this is, that current social media is terrible for solving problems or having debates. It's great to push or highlight certain arguments, good and bad, but not for finding solutions. I don't know if it's even possible to create something that works. But I think it would be a worthwhile endeavour to try to find something. What clearly doesn't work is up- or downvoting arguments. On the other hand while Wikipedia has entries for certain debates, containing facts, sides and historical developments for example, it's too strict and not geared toward finding solutions. Current political or societal debates usually have only a limited number of (important) arguments and facts. Often there is no clear answer or the prefered solution depends on personal convictions or priorities (for example personal freedom vs safety or enviroment vs business interests). However, a visual representation for example which arguments support which goals and some meassure of how strong those arguments really are, might go a long way. I'm thinking of this more like a mind map. Bringing together all the arguments and facts. Sorting/ranking/listing them somehow. Then maybe some kind of ranked voting? Or maybe just putting together the best, most factual and unbiased pro and con arguments for a question and then trying to find some middle ground that makes either most people happy or the least amount of people unhappy? Again, I'm not saying this is easy or even possible. But maybe something to ponder about. submitted by /u/zscan [link] [comments]

  • A promising kids toy Invention and I could use some advice.
    by /u/urmomsangrytoe on April 19, 2021 at 2:30 am

    I’ve gotten some helpful advice from looking around on this subreddit and I’m hoping to get more if you friendly people have a moment. Ultimately, I’d like to know if my efforts are in vain. I think I’ve gotten enough feedback to indicate that it’s worth taking this journey a little further. I realize none of you really have that definitive answer but this is one problem that frequents my mind. Anyway, like stated, I have a toy invention. My 3-year-old loves it but I would probably put the age at 5 and up due to small parts. No idea how any of that works and I’m hesitant to give demos to any household with really little ones for fear of choking hazards. So what do people do to prevent from being sued? That’s the next big worry. Is there a process to get a toy to market that is different from any other? As far as the product goes, I’m on my 4th or 5th version. There are still things to flush out but I’m looking for more feedback from what will be a select few families. I hope to get to a final design in 6 months or so (just a personal goal). In its current state, it is 3D printed. Works well as such but I’d prefer it to be injection molded or something of the like. Here is where my comfort zone leaves me. I know it would be a matter of finding a manufacturer but past this I’m open to suggestions. I have a friend that's pushing Kickstarter pretty hard though thats a lot of work just to get that done right. Can anyone even just point me to a book or site for research? On the chance that I don’t have what it takes to take this hobby to a business, has anyone had a good experience selling their invention? I would love to hear from you too! submitted by /u/urmomsangrytoe [link] [comments]

  • Hello r/Inventions!
    by /u/Wut_R_Those69 on April 18, 2021 at 3:51 am

    Wassup bike riding inventors, I have a few questions. Would you buy a device that would allow you to charge your phone (or anything really) by doing something both beneficial to your health and the environment (riding your bike instead of plugging into the grid)? And what are some other uses for an invention like this? I will say there is one thing somewhat like it on the market already, but my idea is different enough to get a separate patent. submitted by /u/Wut_R_Those69 [link] [comments]

  • Creating a thermal imaging device that can attach to glasses
    by /u/PracticalShine7765 on April 18, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Hello, So for the past year I’ve come up with a concept that would involve using the FLIR Lepton for thermal imaging and I wanted to see if this is possible to create. I know little to nothing about pcb’s and electronics, but am willing to do what’s necessary to make this project happen if it is possible to create. PROJECT: a small device that would be able to attach/detach on the side of the user’s glasses which would allow them to see a live thermal imaging feed of wherever they are facing. This would essentially be almost like an attachable monocle for the user with one eye looking directly at the lcd screen with the video feed. THE GOAL: Have a small device that can fit in a glasses case on its own with thermal imaging capabilities. I want it to be rechargeable and simple. No buttons other than the power on/off button. I don’t want to add any UI or other functions to the device as it’s purpose will be to just feed raw video from the lepton module to the screen. I want the lepton module to feed directly to the lcd screen if possible. WHERE I NEED HELP/ANSWERS: First I want to know if this is possible. If it is, then I want to know what I need in order to make it happen. For example, What Lepton- friendly boards can I use that are small enough to fit discretely in a 3D printed shell for the finished product that can also be used as a power source through the use of a small lipo battery? Would any LCD screen be fine? I have an lcd screen with a flexible ribbon connector already attached that I think would be perfect for this project. As far as I know, all I would need is the lepton module itself, a board capable of housing the the lepton module and the lipo battery that can be recharged, and the right lcd screen. Of course, I also want to able to turn the whole device on or off. My intention isn’t to mass produce this, I’d just thought it’d be a cool little project to make.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 28: Biologically Inspired Intra-Uterine Nanofluid Flow under the Suspension of Magnetized Gold (Au) Nanoparticles: Applications in Nanomedicine
    by Muhammad Mubashir Bhatti on April 15, 2021 at 12:00 am

    The present analysis deals with the intra-uterine nanofluid flow of a Jeffrey fluid through a finite asymmetric channel filled with gold nanoparticles. Gold nanoparticles are helpful in biomedicine to treat various diseases and locate blood flow motion through tiny vessels. The governing fluid is electrically conducting due to the presence of an extrinsic magnetic field while the magnetic Reynolds number is small; therefore, the induced magnetic effects are neglected. The thermal radiation and viscous dissipation effects are also contemplated with the energy equation. The lubrication approach has been utilized by taking a long wavelength and ignoring the inertial forces. The formulated equations are coupled and nonlinear; therefore, a perturbation approach is used to derive the series results. The results are obtained up to the second-order and plotted against various parameters for velocity mechanism, trapping profile, pressure rise, and temperature profile.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 27: A Non-Invasive Photonics-Based Device for Monitoring of Diabetic Foot Ulcers: Architectural/Sensorial Components & Technical Specifications
    by Anastasios Doulamis on April 12, 2021 at 12:00 am

    This paper proposes a new photonic-based non-invasive device for managing of Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFUs) for people suffering from diabetes. DFUs are one of the main severe complications of diabetes, which may lead to major disabilities, such as foot amputation, or even to the death. The proposed device exploits hyperspectral (HSI) and thermal imaging to measure the status of an ulcer, in contrast to the current practice where invasive biopsies are often applied. In particular, these two photonic-based imaging techniques can estimate the biomarkers of oxyhaemoglobin (HbO2) and deoxyhaemoglobin (Hb), through which the Peripheral Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) and Tissue Oxygen Saturation (StO2) is computed. These factors are very important for the early prediction and prognosis of a DFU. The device is implemented at two editions: the in-home edition suitable for patients and the PRO (professional) edition for the medical staff. The latter is equipped with active photonic tools, such as tuneable diodes, to permit detailed diagnosis and treatment of an ulcer and its progress. The device is enriched with embedding signal processing tools for noise removal and enhancing pixel accuracy using super resolution schemes. In addition, a machine learning framework is adopted, through deep learning structures, to assist the doctors and the patients in understanding the effect of the biomarkers on DFU. The device is to be validated at large scales at three European hospitals (Charité–University Hospital in Berlin, Germany; Attikon in Athens, Greece, and Victor Babes in Timisoara, Romania) for its efficiency and performance.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 26: Mathematical Analysis of Two Phase Saturated Nanofluid Influenced by Magnetic Field Gradient
    by Farhan Khan on April 7, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Nanofluids are composed of nano-sized particles dispersed in a carrier liquid. The present investigation’s aim is to examine theoretically the magneto-thermomechanical coupling phenomena of a heated nanofluid on a stretched surface in the presence of magnetic dipole impact. Fourier’s law of heat conduction is used to evaluate the heat transmission rate of the carrier fluids ethylene glycol and water along with suspended nanoparticles of a cobalt–chromium–tungsten–nickel alloy and magnetite ferrite. A set of partial differential equations is transformed into a set of non-linear ordinary differential equations via a similarity approach. The computation is performed in Matlab by employing the shooting technique. The effect of the magneto-thermomechanical interaction on the velocity and temperature boundary layer profiles with the attendant effect on the skin friction and heat transfer is analyzed. The maximum and minimum thermal energy transfer rates are computed for the H2O-Fe3O4 and C2H6O2-CoCr20W15Ni magnetic nanofluids. Finally, the study’s results are compared with the previously available data and are found to be in good agreement.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 25: Agriculture Model Comparison Framework and MyGeoHub Hosting: Case of Soil Nitrogen
    by Anupam Bhar on March 29, 2021 at 12:00 am

    To be able to compare many agricultural models, a general framework for model comparison when field data may limit direct comparison of models is proposed, developed, and also demonstrated. The framework first calibrates the benchmark model against the field data, and next it calibrates the test model against the data generated by the calibrated benchmark model. The framework is validated for the modeling of the soil nutrient nitrogen (N), a critical component in the overall agriculture system modeling effort. The nitrogen dynamics and related carbon (C) dynamics, as captured in advanced agricultural modeling such as RZWQM, are highly complex, involving numerous states (pools) and parameters. Calibrating many parameters requires more time and data to avoid underfitting. The execution time of a complex model is higher as well. A study of tradeoff among modeling complexities vs. speed-up, and the corresponding impact on modeling accuracy, is desirable. This paper surveys soil nitrogen models and lists those by their complexity in terms of the number of parameters, and C-N pools. This paper also examines a lean soil N and C dynamics model and compares it with an advanced model, RZWQM. Since nitrate and ammonia are not directly measured in this study, we first calibrate RZWQM using the available data from an experimental field in Greeley, CO, and next use the daily nitrate and ammonia data generated from RZWQM as ground truth, against which the lean model’s N dynamics parameters are calibrated. In both cases, the crop growth was removed to zero out the plant uptake, to compare only the soil N-dynamics. The comparison results showed good accuracy with a coefficient of determination (R2) match of 0.99 and 0.62 for nitrate and ammonia, respectively, while affording significant speed-up in simulation time. The lean model is also hosted in MyGeoHub cyberinfrastructure for universal online access.

  • Inventions, Vol. 6, Pages 24: Towards Privacy Paradigm Shift Due to the Pandemic: A Brief Perspective
    by Abdul Majeed on March 28, 2021 at 12:00 am

    With the advent of the pandemic (e.g., novel corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19)), a tremendous amount of data about individuals are collected by the health authorities on daily basis for curbing the disease’s spread. The individuals’ data collection/processing at a massive scale for community well-being with the help of digital solutions (e.g., mobile apps for mobility and proximity analysis, contact tracing through credit card usage history, facial recognition through cameras, and crowd analysis using cellular networks data etc.) raise several privacy concerns. Furthermore, the privacy concerns that are arising mainly due to the fine-grained data collection has hindered the response to tackle this pandemic in many countries. Hence, acquiring/handling individuals data with privacy protection has become a vibrant area of research in these pandemic times. This paper explains the shift in privacy paradigm due to the pandemic (e.g., COVID-19) which involves more and detailed data collection about individuals including locations and demographics. We explain technical factors due to which the people’s privacy is at higher risk in the COVID-19 time. In addition, we discuss privacy concerns in different epidemic control measures (ECMs) (e.g., contact tracing, quarantine monitoring, and symptoms reporting etc.) employed by the health authorities to tackle this disease. Further, we provide an insight on the data management in the ECMs with privacy protection. Finally, the future prospects of the research in this area tacking into account the emerging technologies are discussed. Through this brief article, we aim to provide insights about the vulnerability to user’s privacy in pandemic times, likely privacy issues in different ECMs adopted by most countries around the world, how to preserve user’s privacy effectively in all phases of the ECMs considering relevant data in loop, and conceptual foundations of ECMs to fight with future pandemics in a privacy preserving manner.
