Industry Invitation to Participate in our “eGoose” Horizon Europe Innovation Action Proposal on enabling “Digital Security and Privacy for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Micro Enterprises (MEs)” with a focus on “Instant” Deep Diffusion of Actual and Real-Time Cyber Safety Solutions through the Complete Extended Supply Networks of “Late Majority” High Value Manufacturing SMEs & MEs.

The Open European Network for Enterprise Innovation in High Value Manufacturing (ENTOV-HVM) in collaboration with the Innovation Value Institute at Maynooth University (Ireland) hereby invites Manufacturing SMEs / MEs to participate in our upcoming proposal to develop and implement an innovative Cyber Safety solution that will diffuse “instantly” through their complete extended supply networks. Proposal submission will be by August 27th, 2020. The proposal will apply for three year and €4M funding. For more details see our initial presentation HERE  and the call details HERE.

ENTOV-HVM Proposal for Horizon Europe Innovation Action SU-DS03-2019-2020 “Towards “Instant” Deep Diffusion of Actual and Real-Time Cyber Safety Solutions through the Complete Extended Supply Networks of “Late Majority” High Value Manufacturing SMEs & MEs” (Version 1 on 21 June 2020)

Dear all - this is the first version of our proposal for Horizon Europe Innovation Action SU-DS03-2019-2020 “Towards “Instant” Deep Diffusion of Actual and Real-Time Cyber Safety Solutions through the Complete Extended Supply Networks of “Late Majority” High Value Manufacturing SMEs & MEs” (Version 1 on 21 June 2020). The PPT version of the proposal can be downloaded at https://innovation-web.eu/entov-hvm-h2020-ia-su-ds03-2019-2020-cyber-safety-ecosystem-proposal-20200621. The focus of the proposal is "Digital Security and Privacy for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Micro Enterprises (MEs)”. If you are interested in joining please let me know. Submission date is August 27th, 2020 and lead proposer will be Maynooth University in Ireland. Currently listed participants are only partially confirmed.
Proposal Challenge: "Most SMEs & MEs lack sufficient awareness and can only allocate limited resources - both technical and human - to counter cyber risks, hence the…

Conversation Fragments - Experiment! Grant Hypothesis "Innovations based on biomimicry diffuse fastest to late adopters in a market"

Bild
Dear all - trying to share a conversation happening in several spaces which you might enjoy. The conversation is part of a journey towards a bold research proposal to the VW Foundation (see https://www.volkswagenstiftung.de/en/funding/our-funding-portfolio-at-a-glance/experiment) in September (TU Berlin leading the proposal along with Uni Lisbon and Maynooth Uni at the moment). The consortium for this call is "jelling" very slowly since we are focused on the cyber safety proposal, and it will need to have a small core team that is ready to commit significant time and thought to the proposal writing effort itself - let me know if you are interested but beware that this will be a lot of work in the next months.
Do share your thoughts here - maybe we can actually co-create a coherent description of the journey :)

Successful Innovation in High Value Manufacturing seems due to Luck Alone - The Three Monkeys Rule and Elephants Dance on the Table...

Dear all – maybe in most innovation efforts we should just cut our losses and do something more satisfying? I recently went through a short Innovation Diffusion Assessment with a close friend who is a department head at a German third generation medium sized family owned and led manufacturer of printed plastic components for the transportation industry(see Litmus Test Version 3 at https://open-european-innovation-network.blogspot.com/2020/06/innovation-diffusion-litmus-test_10.html). Initially I was truly enthusiastic about perhaps being able to support, however in the end I was grateful not to need to get further involved... We were discussing a planned project to introduce a highly novel effort to print with plastic/metal mixtures for a specific challenge given by a major client. The results of the assessment were at a maturity level of 2 since although the product maturity was quite high, the population web maturity was very low (for explanation see the pre-publication draft of "…

Innovation Diffusion Litmus Test Version 3.0 Available - Now with Case Study Comparisons for Your Results

Bild
Dear all – the Litmus Test has been revised after completing the case study research for our conference article (final submitted version to be shared shortly) and is now available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/entov-hvm/. If you have used previous versions of the tool you can easily copy/paste your results into the new version. You can now compare your results with an ideal reference model, and 13 case studies. We have also added a Litmus Test “Traffic Light” summary to the top of the tab “Litmus Test Results” and simplified the user interface. As we continue our case study work the next capability planned is a simple dependency model which can easily be gamed for scenario exploration. The aspiration is to release this early September. The purpose of the test is to help you innovate successfully and rapidly from ideation to market saturation. This questionnaire is used to structure an interview with a qualified ENTOV-HVM facilitator. If you are taking it without guidance please rev…

Innovation Diffusion Litmus Test Maturity - Overall Results -> Traffic Lights

Bild
Dear all, as Version 3 of the Litmus Test (Version 2 available via https://open-european-innovation-network.blogspot.com/2020/04/innovation-diffusion-litmus-test.html) matures for planned release middle of June we are introducing a “traffic light” system for the top level indicators as shown in the image. “Traffic Lights” or “RAG” (red, amber, green) visualizations have shown themselves to be even simpler communication tools than maturity levels and hence the expectation that this will make it all the easier to understood how “healthy” the effort being evaluated is. “Red” of course means “do not proceed”, “Yellow” means “proceed with caution” and “Green” means “Fine to proceed”. The image shows the results for the exemplary case study on 3D printing in high value manufacturing in our conference article that will be submitted shortly. Moving from red to amber to green is achieved by working on the individual assessment questions.
The traffic lights are thus the highest level of abstra…

Red Shift - Accelerating Innovation Diffusion - The REAL Game Changers -> Fix the Basics!

Bild
Dear all – about three weeks ago a company I work with in our research network (company name kept anonymous to protect the innocent) came up with a "really really" good digital product-based idea to massively reduce the cyber security risks of staff working from home. The aim was to have ALL staff globally using the idea within 10 working days. They developed the idea to TRL 8, distributed the product to all staff laptops via their networks and then published information about the product and its use on the company intranet page. This was then followed up with the same information as a part of a wider more encompassing regular all-staff newsletter. Adoption is now around 1%, stagnant and everyone seemed to be wondering "wide-eyed" why the aim was not achieved… Sound familiar? This is DAILY LIFE in most of our organizations…
As our innovation diffusion case studies keep coming in and as their analysis proceeds, insights suggest that the two primary „game changers“ …

Red Shift: First "Game Changers" for Disruptively Accelerating Diffusion in Innovation Ecoystems? Where is Your Story?

Bild
Dear all - time to start digging into the innovation diffusion ecosystem dependency model!
With the high level capture and evaluation of 10 diffusion case studies now completed we begin a process of exploring the acceleration factors for innovation diffusion more deeply.  The aspiration is to gather a few dozen more case studies and then to suggest a first dependency model in the fall - and submit that for publication to the Journal of Industry and Higher Education (https://journals.sagepub.com/home/ihe). The dependency model will be the result of a detailed co-variate analysis of case study data, be modeled in Excel and published with a Creative Commons by Attribution Only licence.
The image shows the adoption of the current 10 case study innovations over the course of their planned diffusion compared to what might be a "perfect" aspired diffusion curve on the left. In comparison to the aspired diffusion "wave", the case studies extend right in waves of varying leng…
