Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 Perspectives on Europe’s industrial specialization A recent analysis of export market shares (see Eur. Comm., 2005c) shows that: in terms of skill intensity, it is very clear that the EU does particularly well in the medium-high technology grouping, with a world export market share in excess of 20% which is substantially higher than its overall market share of 15-16%. It is also a big world player in the medium-low technology sector although its share in this category is tending to decline over time. Its relatively poor showing in the high technology category to a large extent reflects its low market share in ICT related industries. In the overall world market for high technology goods, the US and south east Asia are dominant. While this dominance to a large extent reflects their particular focus on the ICT sector, their involvement in other high technology areas is also playing a role. Japan has the highest concentration in the medium and high technology sectors of any of the areas covered. Over 80% of Japan’s trade are in these groupings compared with less than 60% for the EU.

Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 The Science base Compared to the US and Japan, the scientific capabilities of the EU are distributed evenly across all fields of science. The EU shows no strong specialisation or under-specialisation in any particular field. Conversely, the US is specialized in basic life sciences and multidisciplinary sciences and under-specialised in chemistry and engineering sciences; Japan specialises in physics and astronomy but is less active in biological sciences, computer sciences, earth and environmental sciences, and mathematics and statistics.

Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Pervasive Technologies/Production Technologies/Services Today, in Europe there is a number of research institutes which operate on high international research standards in certain areas of service research (for ex. service standardization, service engineering and service work design). Though, on the European level there is a lack of centres of excellence which are able to cover the broadness of service research challenges in an interdisciplinary way as well as to concentrate resources and know- how in order to be able to shape the international discourse of research. In Europe technology development, goods production-oriented research and practice are well connected. But to service research, such a statement can be applied only on a limited scale. It is necessary to raise the so far limited readiness/tradition of service companies for systematic research and development and for participating in collaborative development projects with science.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Systemic transition technologies/Renewable Energy : Europe as a whole (European Commission and its Member states) puts more public resources in non nuclear energy research than its competitors, especially in the area of renewable energies. Europe is relative weak in comparison with the US and Japan in moving forward with the most promising technologies such as hydrogen and fuel cell based technologies, while at the same time the European continent is leading in solar, wind and geothermal energy technologies. The US have been overtaking the EU in the gas turbine business, Japan is in the process of doing the same in the PV area and in the fuel cell domain where most of the industrial advances appear to be carried out in the US. There is a strong European base in fundamental science and technology areas of relevance to key energy technologies and in some areas, ambitious experiments and demonstrations are set up. Apart from wind where European industry has definitely taken the lead following its economical success, most of the “minor” technologies (solar thermal, geo thermal, ocean energy, etc…) have still to materialise in terms of business success and significant contributors to the energy mix.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Systemic transition technologies/Environmental Technologies: Europe has a well recognised scientific competence in environmental research, as well as in research on the impact of socio-economic behaviour on the environment. In some important segments of general purpose technologies (e.g. miniaturised sensors, new materials, some segments of nanotechnology) European research and development is leading edge worldwide. In many fields of sectoral environmental technologies European firms are at the global forefront of technological developments, building on now almost thirty years of experience.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Systemic transition technologies/Sustainable Mobility Technologies Europe possesses high scientific capacities in the majority of the disciplines concerned: sciences engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, mechanics of the fluids, electronics, acoustics, energetics, applied mathematics, signal processing…… There are large world leaders in the majority of the sectors: cars and commercial vehicles, aeronautics, high speed trains, "complex" ships. A high technological level in the fields of motorisation, of electronics, of the tyres, of the particle filters … high European standards inciting to innovation and a clear European policy (see European Commission, 2001,White Paper on Transport Policy). A beginning of a European mobilisation for hydrogen and the fuels of the future.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Emerging Sciences Technologies/ Nanotech : Europe is performing well in this emerging field both in terms of scientific production as in accounting for patents. The major challenge is to make the jump from an, by large, academic based activity to commercial applications, e.g. nano-electronics and medical applications. Europe is strong in the following sub-fields of nanotechnology: –Biomimetics (a major source of nano-innovations) –Nanomaterials (nanoparticles, quantum dots, thin films) –Nanoelectronics and computing –Toxicology of nanoparticles, both in-vitro and in-vivo –Nanophotovoltaics –Nanosensor research and development –Nanomedicine – including diagnostics, tissue regeneration and targeted drug delivery
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Emerging Sciences & Technologies/ Cognitive systems technologies Europe, which holds a large part of the responsibility and merit for launching cognitive science and fuelling it with some of its key insights, has of late been lagging behind the US and Japan, and must make a very resolute effort to catch up and remain in the lead, in the face of the increased level of competition brought about by China, which is giving cognitive neuroscience top priority. In some areas, such as robotics, neuroscience, psychophysics, statistical and dynamical models, logic, developmental psychology, pharmacology, linguistics, Europeans are in the lead or among the world leaders.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Emerging S&T/Complexity Sciences A new wave is originating in complex systems research that is shifting the IT technology needed to support the activities from algorithms to programming languages for interaction and concurrency. The main experts all over the world are in EU. For example in the field of bioinformatics, in concurrency theory, Europe is the leading edge of basic research and knowledge if compared to the USA, China or Japan.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 SWOT analysis in key technology areas Emerging S&T/Converging S&T: Scientific activity in Europe as measured by the number of publications is overall higher than that in USA and Japan in all of the convergent clusters, except in the case of Biotech + ICT where USA has a slightly lead. In terms if scientific impact as measured by the normalized citation score, the USA however leads in all clusters with the possible exception of Nanotechnology + ICT.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 The Future of Manufacturing FUTMAN scenarios (2003) Under the Global Economy scenario, individual choice by consumers is preferred and the “invisible hand” of the market will best co-ordinate the policies necessary for economic development and technological innovation. Research and technology is regarded as a key ingredient into sustaining leading-edge progress in globalised markets, Europe lagging behind the USA in mission-funded RTD areas. Under the Local Standard scenario, allegiances unite behind collective public values and consumer attitudes, but congruence in policy is achieved, not at central European level, but at regional level. Influential local citizen action groups go hand-in-hand with a decrease in EU influence on global affairs. A “hollowing-out” occurs in those sectors of European industry which are prone to commoditisation. The Sustainable Times scenario contains a generalised acceptance at both citizen level and at the level of governance that sustainable development issues should be taken from the clouds of medium-term concerns and grounded in policies with immediate effect. Technological and organisational innovation bring about system changes and industry becomes an active mediator of sustainable development. The Focus Europe scenario combines a high degree of congruence in development and innovation policies with a highly individualised set of consumer preferences. At the macro level, this is a risky strategy, since Europe’s views and policies on sustainability are not shared by the United States and by the big economies of East Asia. European manufacturing rises to the challenge and carves out a world leading position in environmental technology.
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 The economic scenarios of the Central Planning Bureau (NL, 2003) The recent scenarios of CPB tend to show that a more integrated Europe as well as a globalised Europe score both higher in terms of efficiency/equity trade offs than a Europe of regions or a “Transatlantic” Europe; but the first is more socially cohesive and environmentally sustainable but less economically effective than the second.  See Ruud de Mooij, Paul Tang, (2003), Four Futures of Europe, Central Planning Bureau, The Hague
Ελληνική Βιομηχανία: προς την οικονομία της γνώσης, ΤΕΕ, Αθήνα, 3-5 Ιουλίου 2006 Conclusions Strengthening Europe’s research identity To be more attractive, Europe needs a differentiation strategy, based on the strengths of its science, technology and industrial base. It must specialize and become the place for high quality, high innovative and value added services-products systems as the US is the place for computer software and microprocessors. And once the Union has decided around which objectives to mobilize its resources, the research, innovation and education efforts of member States, regions and business must be articulated and synergies enhanced internally and with other partner countries. The underlying concept for such a specialisation strategy could be « sustainable and qualitative growth ». It’s at the heart of the ‘Lisbon-Göteborg’ strategy and it opens new spaces for technological organisational, institutional and social innovations.

New EU Industrial Policy (2005): mixing horizontal/sectoral aspects « Aho Report » (2006): « A combination of supply and these measures (on regulation, standards, public procurement, intellectual property and fostering a culture which celebrates innovation) to create demand should be focused in large scale strategic actions. We identify several examples: e-Health, Pharmaceuticals, Energy, Environment, Transport and Logistics, Security, and Digital Content. »
