11
Open Innovation
  • For over 100 years, Kodak has been a photographic
    innovator.
  • Carried out its own research, didnt need to
    collaborate much.
  • The digital transformation in the imaging
    business has changed all that.
  • Kodak doesnt possess all the technologies it
    needs.
  • Must collaborate search for new ideas
    technologies.
  • Traditional research sites were inappropriate.
  • A European wide search resulted in Cambridge
    being selected for .
  • The new Kodak European Research Centre

12
Cambridge
13
Kodak European Research (Cambridge)
is the European component of Kodak Research
Laboratories
We are situated on the Cambridge Science Park
and we have been there since Jan 06
We have an open plan office area, and large
multi-purpose labs
We are currently 24 permanent staff 10
temporary staff
14
Why does Kodak have Research activities in Europe?
To leverage European location to benefit Kodak
  • Technology differentiation
  • Different science technology emerging from
    within European universities, institutes, and
    industries
  • Consumer differentiation
  • The way EAMER consumers choose to use and
    interact with technology and products is
    different, different trends in consumer usage and
    uptake of technology
  • Proximity to Strategic Partners
  • Especially where there is a European research
    centre
  • Funding Opportunities
  • Participation in local, national or EU research
    programmes

15
Our research interests
  • Smart digital imaging
  • perfect capture, including metadata
  • semantic understanding intelligence
  • ubiquitous access (mutiplatforms)
  • Extended printing systems
  • novel printing platforms
  • difficult media
  • Patterning on flexible substrates
  • displays
  • electronics

16
Mission for Cambridge Lab
  • Search out excellent, differentiated and relevant
    European science, technology opportunities of
    relevance to Kodak
  • Identify pursue regional user preferences
  • Develop relationships with key centres of
    excellence both industrial and academic
  • Establish national EU research collaborations
  • Build prototype systems to validate technology in
    a Kodak environment
  • Transfer technology to appropriate landing zones
    that can create revenues

17
Criteria important to Kodak for its new Centre
  • Maximum ability to extract early stage, new
    science technology from the best
    (quality/stature/alignment/environment) academic
    centres in Europe
  • Attractive for high quality multinational staff
    (standard of living,education, tax, high tech
    environment, etc)
  • Good access to external partners (start ups
    Venture Capital)
  • Easy accessibility for visitors (close to
    international airport, railway, motorway, etc)
  • Appropriate infrastructure in place or easy
    access to (IS, networks,technical skills,
    prototyping, etc)
  • Flexible infrastructure to accommodate fast
    changing needs
  • Low cost structure

18
An Academic Environment
  • Cambridge is home to one of the worlds best
    universities
  • It has more Nobel Laureates than any other
    university (81 in 2005)
  • Research income in 2004 was 246m, comparable
    with MIT and Yale
  • Kodak staff are part of the University
    environment
  • meetings
  • discussions
  • lectures
  • conferences
  • close location to a premier university to
    maximise the extraction of early stage, new
    science technology

19
Interaction with Universities
  • Short term projects MSc, final year projects
  • Long term projects PhD, Postdocs
  • DTI funded projects
  • EU FP6 STREPs, IPs, Network of Excellence,
    Marie Curie
  • Placement students 3-12 month
  • Consultancy
  • Contract work
  • Spin-out Start-up companies
  • Technology Transfer Licensing, investment,
    acquisition

20
Other Companies
  • Cambridge is attractive to many companies in our
    field and is a fertile science and technology
    base for us

Leads to interactions potential collaborations
21
Close to start-ups and spin-outs
  • Cambridge is home to many spin-outs and start-ups
    in our technical fields
  • University people and ideas are at the core of
    many new technology ventures
  • Approximately 1000 innovation-based companies are
    located in Cambridge
  • Kodak Research can participate network with
    these companies, increasing our potential to
    access new technology early

22
Venture Capital
  • In 2003, 10 of European Venture capital was
    invested in Cambridge
  • a city with 120k people!
  • Kodak can benefit by interactions with VCs
