PTC x IoT ONE EP049 - How Merck uses open innovation to improve R&D efficiency – Sophie Sun, Managing Director of Innovation Hub China, Merck Group
Monday, Apr 29, 2019
*This episode of the IIoT Spotlight Podcast is sponsored by PTC.
In this episode of the IIoT Spotlight Podcast, we discuss the leading digital technologies in healthcare and medical devices in China, and why open innovation makes sense for innovation in traditional and deep-science industries.
⁃ Open innovation collaboration allows 3 parties to leverage each other’s strengths:
Start ups strong in technology can leverage the domain knowledge of industry leaders to build out practical use cases and solutions
Industry leaders can access the technological expertise of the startups
The academia and government to gain practical information from private sector to guide policy and programs
⁃ Domains deeply B2B and scientifically dependent are primed for open innovation as the technology development cycle is long and expensive, so it is ideal to partner with actors who have technical or industry expertise, as it is highly expensive for any individual actor to do it on their own.
⁃ Merck’s Accelerator program focuses on engaging startups for 3 months to allow existing businesses to access technology that will be the future of these sectors. There are 3 engagement formats: incubation within the group, M&A or investment by the corporate VC program, or work together with internal R&D teams.
⁃ However, innovation programs are not enough to achieve efficiency in R&D, mindsets and skillsets of internal staff and processes need to be changed to accept and embrace new technologies and changes.
⁃ The difference between startups from Germany and China is the market readiness of Chinese startups. In China, startups are able to test their product more due to the faster pace of adoption of digital solutions and concepts in both the market and the government.
⁃ Two main successes are a track and trace solution throughout the supply chain to maintain safety and quality standards, and a joint venture to develop a platform for data insights to develop better solutions for patients by understanding their purchase behavior and needs.
Sophie Sun is the Managing Director Innovation Hub China and Vice President Strategy & Transformation China at Merck Group. Merck Group is a leading science and technology company in the Healthcare, Life Science, and Performance Materials sectors headquartered in Darmstardt, Germany, and active in 66 countries worldwide.

IIC x IoT ONE Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast EP037: The future is already here; it is not just particularly well-distributed - an Interview with Jim Morrish of Nokia
Monday, Sep 03, 2018
*This episode of the Industrial IoT Spotlight Podcast is sponsored by the Industrial Internet Consortium
How can the IIC business strategy and solutions lifecycle task group help to de-risk the adoption of IoT in enterprises? What is the framework for understanding IoT in the context of business transformation? What is the real impact of IoT that forecasts are unable to capture? What is the impact of the IoT platforms market on the acceleration of IoT adoption?
The adoption of IoT is not a step into the unknown; it has been diagnosed and has an envelope around it. Putting together 10 years of software, 10 years of hardware, and 10 years of communications experience, the IIC business strategy & innovation framework allows project managers and executives to understand and manage the scope of the challenges that come with implementing IoT in traditional organisations.
Jim also discusses the real impact of IoT in the economy beyond predictions of devices and market value, and how to develop internal capabilities to harness the power of IoT in an organisation. We also look into the IoT platform market as an accelerator for adoption and scale, and discuss the future of this highly dynamic market.
