Home - Software Cluster Benchmark How strong are the different European software clusters in their employment, turnover, human capital etc.? How do they compare to each other and to the Silicon Valley? To generate insight in this matter for future action the German Software-Cluster (concentrated around the cities of Darmstadt, Karlsruhe, Kaiserslautern and Saarbrücken) has commissioned an independent study conducted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI) in Karlsruhe, Germany. The results of this study are presented on this website, the full study and additional images (high resolution) can also be downloaded here.

Disruptive technologies: Advances that will transform life, business, and the global economy

The relentless parade of new technologies is unfolding on many fronts. Almost every advance is billed as a breakthrough, and the list of “next big things” grows ever longer. Not every emerging technology will alter the business or social landscape—but some truly do have the potential to disrupt the status quo, alter the way people live and work, and rearrange value pools.

I have had a great Sunday easing into Mobile World Congress - what better way to start my week than by watching startups pitch? The Innovation on the Fringe event organised by Helen Keegan and Jennifer Hiley was just lovely and offered startups a chance to pitch their businesses in 2 minutes - yes 2 minutes. Not very long, but strangely long enough to get a flavour at least of the latest startup trends. Great stuff at Innovation on the Fringe — Katie Lips Great stuff at Innovation on the Fringe — Katie Lips
ICT manufacturing has a much higher R&D intensity than ICT services© nh313066 (stock.xchng) The Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) sector is one of the most research intensive sectors in the EU economy, meaning that it has a high ratio of Research & Development (R&D) expenditure if compared to its value added (its revenues less materials and services purchases). This is one of the main findings of a new report by the JRC's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS), which also highlights that with a ratio of 5.3% in 2009, the R&D intensity of this sector was more than four times the average of all business sectors in the EU (1.2%). Based on the latest available data from official sources (EUROSTAT and OECD for 2008 and 2009) the report shows that in 2009 the ICT sector accounted for 17% of the EU's total business R&D expenditure, while only representing 4% of the EU's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

R&D : l’Europe n'investit pas suffisamment dans le numérique
Europe's Information Society Newsroom News :: Science and innovation, an essential factor for competitiveness and growth in Europe (30/04/2012) Europe needs innovation more than ever before to support sustainable growth and create new jobs, to replace those lost in the crisis. To keep up with growing global competition, we must leave the comfort zone of business. Looking ahead, Horizon 2020, the €80 billion investment programme for research and innovation after 2014, proposed by the European Commission at the end of last year, together with the new cohesion policy, will provide a further push to strengthen our Innovation Union.
EU makes progress, but growth slowing. This trend highlights the need to increase efforts if Europe’s economy is to maintain global competitiveness. Almost all EU countries have become better at fostering innovation, according to an annual research and innovation scoreboard But progress is slowing – and the EU still has not closed its innovation gap with international leaders the US, Japan and South Korea. On top of that, emerging economies such as China, Brazil, and India have been catching up over the past 5 years. EU research & innovation scoreboard 2012
