"Physicists and Industry in the 21st Century: Who, What, How"
The on-going global economic transformations require that industries
strongly focus on innovation, time to market, quality and cost in the
introduction of new products. The trend in each industry is to focus on core
competencies and obtain the additional resources from external alliances and
partnerships with Universities and Government. "Coopetition" is emerging as
the most effective approach for technology transfer, i.e. the path from idea
to products. This requires a totally different and much more pervasive role
of the physicist. In addition to the scientific skills, the scientist needs
interdisciplinary and communication skills in order to successfully interact
in the industrial environment. Examples will be given. Specific suggestions
for the role of the university in forming the physicists with the proper
requirements for the modern industry will be discussed.
