Opening General Session - What is High-Quality Research in the 21st Century

David Sweeney

This presentation will be delivered remotely, and look at the current challenges for the assessment research quality. In an environment where government are looking ever harder at the case of investment in research and innovation against competition from health, the environment, and social imperatives we will look at academic impact and societal impact and different ways of recognising both. With the pressures on academics and their careers, and also at the importance of open access we will look at the implications of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment and new Open Access initiatives such as Plan S. With the pressures on university budgets we will look at the competition for investment between education and research. Kohala 1 & 2

Panel Session - Will the traditional publication model survive?

The traditional journal publishing model is in turmoil with virtually every facet of the learned journal system under threat from peer review reliability, reliance and utility, mounting costs of publication and dissemination, open access models, predatory journals and conferences, fake journals and counterfeit websites. This panel session will provide a vibrant discussion about the future of the publications model and try to answer the question – will the traditional publication model survive. Kohala 1 & 2

General Session - Keynote Speaker - Big Ideas: Technological Breakthroughs Investors Shouldn't Miss in 2019

Catherine Wood

Despite its potential, innovation typically needs time and maturity before gaining mass market adoption. Consequently, with a focus on benchmarks, sectors, and short-term performance, traditional investment managers often minimize or misunderstand its potential. So how do Investors identify the next transformative technology and what can we, as Research Managers, learn from them? What criteria are used to predict which transformative technologies will have a profound disruptive impact on our society and economy? Through an open research process that cuts across sectors, industries, and markets, ARK Invest seeks to identify innovation with dramatic cost declines, strong price elasticity of demand, and convergence which spawns further innovation. To illustrate the impact of innovation and excite investors about the opportunities, each year ARK publishes and presents “Big Ideas”, a selection of its original research highlighting the technological breakthroughs ARK believes will advance significantly over the coming year. ARK believes these technologies are ready for prime time and hope you enjoy its Big Ideas of 2019! Kohala 1 & 2

Panel Session - Investing in disruptive innovation

From which department will the next disruptive innovation come from in your research organisation? Robotics, IT or perhaps Genetics and Diagnostics? While there is some overlap between emergent and disruptive technologies, not all emergent technologies will become disruptive. What are the criteria that Investors and Businesses use to differentiate between emergent and disruptive technologies, and what can research managers learn from them in order to best support their researchers and entrepreneurs? How can you enhance your chances of being the disruptor rather than the disrupted? The panel, who have a diverse background, will tackle some of these questions. Kohala 1 & 2
