Frost & Sullivan's Emerging Market Innovation webcasts are useful for both reactive companies that are new to a country or market, and proactive companies that stay in step with the changing scenarios. Our Emerging Market Growth Monitor, Global Economic Tracker-Insights and Trends (GET-IT) offer demographic, socio-metric, economic, political, and regulatory research by industry and region.
Frost & Sullivan’s Mega Trends research webinars provide identification and analysis of the most important global Mega Trends within and across industries, potential scenarios of specific trends through 2020, and the implications of those trends in transforming business markets, society and cultures. Our services enable companies to develop and implement a macro-to-micro analysis process to integrate Mega Trend knowledge into actionable strategy.
Chinese entities are aggressively innovating in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, supercomputing, quantum technologies, and genomics. Governments, policymakers and multinational corporations outside of China face challenges competing with the Chinese advancements as well as opportunities to level the playing field.
This session will explore answers to crucial questions:
• Where does China stand on various innovation indices globally?
• What does China’s considerable growth in its innovation ranking mean for other leading economies and companies that have business interests in China?
• Which policy initiatives were taken by the Chinese government resulted in improving the innovation ecosystem?
• Learn about emerging technologies and their potential impacts on government and industry investments
• Understand what e-Commerce and P2P economies mean for financial services
• Discover the macroeconomic effect of mobility transformation
• Determine what opportunities smart cities present in the investment community
• Find out the value of bringing connectivity to global populations, particularly regarding economic well-being
• Develop a deeper understanding of the top economic trends that will shape the global economy in 2018.
• Learn more about the growth outlook for major economies such as the United States, China, and India.
• Understand how negotiations related to Brexit and NAFTA are expected to impact participating countries and the global economy.
• Identify the implications of the recent extension of oil production cuts by OPEC and non-OPEC allies.
This webinar will explore answers to key questions:

Select cities in Latin America and North America have been at the forefront of the smart city movement. However, until relatively recently, the majority of cities in the Americas had been slower to adopt a smart city approach than their counterparts in Europe and, to some extent, Asia-Pacific. The past few years, though, have seen the smart city movement expand significantly, particularly in the United States, where mid-tier cities have become increasingly interested in smart solutions to drive new efficiencies and invigorate their local economies.
Cities such as Vienna, Barcelona, and Amsterdam (as well as numerous others) have embraced different approaches to the smart city concept, with some preferring a bottom-up approach and others demonstrating more top-down strategies. The European Union, as a centralized regional body, has also played an important role in maturing and advancing the smart city concept throughout the region. While beginning to evolve, the smart city movement is still in a nascent stage, and both city leaders and vendors are determining how best to approach development, adoption, and delivery of smart city services. Cities and vendors must learn from best practices being developed in other cities, while also creating tailored approaches to meet the unique needs of each city and its citizens.
In recent years, there have been many innovative products and evolving new technologies for consumer electronics. These disruptions are boosting the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing industries to the next level, especially with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT). A smart electronic system is identified as a broad class of miniature and intelligent devices that are ubiquitously connected and energy efficient. They incorporate functionalities like sensing, actuation, and control. The convergence scenario of smart electronics systems and IoT will enable emerging technologies, such as smart home, smart city, Industry 4.0/smart factories, smart mobility, smart packaging, and smart health and wellness.
APAC has cities that have been early adopters of the smart city concept. Seoul and Singapore, for instance, are smart city pioneers in the region and the world. India and China have both unveiled national plans to support widespread implementation of their smart city visions. While beginning to mature, the smart city movement is still in a nascent stage, and both city leaders and vendors are determining how best to approach development, adoption, and delivery of smart city services. Cities and vendors must learn from best practices being developed in other cities, while also creating tailored approaches to meet the unique needs of each city and its citizens.
3 Critical Takeaways:
· Innovation: The Smart Cities highlighted in this webinar prioritize cultivating a spirit of innovation within their communities, businesses, and government. They do this by involving citizens, businesses, and academia in the Smart City conversation; attracting innovation centers and dedicating living labs; and supporting local startups.
· Goals & Adjectives: For Smart Cities to progress, initiatives must align with a strategy that has a clear vision and goals. All Smart Cities have three meta-goals: maintaining citizen well-being, ensuring resource and environmental sustainability, and securing a bright economic future.
· Learning while Striving to Lead: Many cities wait to implement an initiative after its success has been proven elsewhere. Smart Cities learn from best practices, but they also take the lead in finding novel ways to address city challenges.
The Czech Republic stands amongst the leaders in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region in regards to FDI attraction, with investors benefiting from incentives such as access to the EU Single Market and an educated workforce for a reasonable cost. Moreover, investors can also be assured of the country's economic stability, as evidenced by factors such as robust GDP growth, a sound fiscal position, and a low unemployment rate.
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a severe eye disease and major cause of vision loss in elderly. AMD inhibits the ability to see objects directly ahead and causes irreversible, progressive decline in an individual’s independence and ability to perform daily activities. Across the EU, 17.1 million people are living with AMD, of which 2.5 million cases are the costlier late stage AMD. The total cost of managing the consequences is expected to be € 89.46 billion per year. New research found that savings of € 6.20 billion a year could be generated through the daily consumption of lutein and zeaxanthin.
