FabSpace 2.0 aims at making universities open innovation centres for their region and improving their contribution to the performance of societies. It will concentrate on one innovation area with high expected socio-economic and environmental impact: geodata-driven innovation, by leveraging space data in particular. When Universities must endorse a new role as co-creators of innovations in the context of Science 2.0 principles, the future realisation of open data as a new innovation scene needs to set up a creative environment in which developers from the civil society or industry or the academic research, public administrations and civil organisations can meet, work together, co-create new tools and business models. The proposal consists in a new kind of fab labs: FabSpaces. A fab lab is a one-stop shop access to any materials, machines and tools to digitally manufacture new products, a FabSpace will be a one-stop shop-access to a range of data (incl. space data), free software & data processing tools, to develop new applications. FabSpace 2.0 will provide a new free-access service and place dedicated to collaborative data-driven innovation in 6 European universities (13 at the end of the project). Through online support, entrepreneurship & innovation leadership trainings for students and researchers, the human capital among FabSpace users will be enhanced. The link between universities, industry, the public sector and civil society will be strengthened with local and European actions/events consisting in developing new applications to tackle challenges launched by ONGs & companies. 1500 students and researchers are expected to use FabSpaces, half of them will participate in workshops and 21 teams will be invited to events were they will meet experts and start-ups. FabSpace sustainability will be ensured before the end of the project. By doing so, FabSpace 2.0 intends to make universities regional catalysts and leaders of innovation in the area of data-driven innovations


NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nomura Research Institute (NRI, TOKYO:4307), a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, today announced its Valuable OTC Products and Liquidity Control System (VOLCS) has been awarded the Best Utilities Technology at the 2017 Fund Technology and WSL Awards. NRI’s VOLCS offering provides a multipurpose management system for financial institutions, specifically establishing strong due-date management for structured bonds and OTC derivatives and cash management. While designed for financial institutions, the solution can also be separated and utilized individually by non-financial firms. Most recently, structured bonds and OTC derivatives have been receiving more attention due to the effects of stock price changes and Japan’s negative interest rates. Both financial products are complicated and require detailed calculation and settlement day management, causing a major operational and financial burden to financial institutions. VOLCS enables its users to reduce the operational burden significantly, resulting in increased trading volume, as well as provides the option to reallocate their resources from due day management to strategic division for more sales power. A couple of major financial institutions have already adopted VOLCS since its launch in June, 2016. “Financial institutions across the globe are looking to drive efficiencies in their day-to-day operations with innovative technologies to lower their cost burden, ease management challenges and increase their bottom line,” said Minoru Yokote, Senior Managing Director of NRI. “NRI is committed to distributing our system solutions and consulting services that are industry-leading in Japan across the global marketplace to address these key challenges, and it is an honor to be recognized for our contribution.” The Fund Technology and WSL Awards recognize technology solution and providers catering to asset managers and institutional traders that have demonstrated exceptional customer service and innovative product development over the past year. 2017’s event has been expanded to recognize the efforts of technology providers, data specialists and exchanges meeting the needs of the wider asset management community, particularly mutual funds.
