IMPORTANCE OF INNOVATION
• Economic growth and welfare of a country or region are
depending on the competitiveness and the innovation of
its economic actors
• In a free market economy innovation is recognised as an
important motor for economic growth
• Through innovation new products and services are
created as well as more efficient processes. This involves
the innovative idea and the transformation of this idea
(invention) into a product or process that gets exploited on
the market

COLLABORATION IN INNOVATION
• Different actors with R&D involvement :
• R&D oriented companies
• Strong scientific base
• Government investment in education and research
• Collaboration between companies and research institutes
enhances knowledge creation and diffusion
• Objectives of the different actors are different, but
complementary

COLLABORATION IN INNOVATION
• Collaboration university and industry is a kind of Public/ private
partnerships
• Advantages for companies :
• Access to recent scientific knowledge
• Experience of researchers
• Access to specailised equipment
• Advantages for researchers :
• Contribution to curricula of researchers
• Tune education more to industry needs
• Possibility for students to collaborate through internship, thesis or PhD

PRODUCTS
Product Example : Energetic Particle Telescope
EPT
Highly Innovative Science Class Radiation Spectrometer designed to
detect, directly identify and measure the energy of electrons, protons,
alpha particles and heavier ions in the space environment.
 Contamination-free energetic particle data measurement : the EPT
particle discrimination concept allows full discrimination at high energy
without using a huge amount of sensor material.
 Real-time flux measurement : the EPT can provide real-time (ready for
use) flux measurements needed for detailed space weather forecasting.
 Modularity : the EPT instrument can be easily reconfigured to fit user’s
needs (angle of view, energy ranges and resolution, communication
interfaces to spacecraft).
 Low power, low mass : for a maximum envelope of 212 (length) x 162
(width) x 128 (height) mm³, the mass of EPT is smaller than 4.6kg and the
instrument consumes less than 6W.
