The EW Innovation Chasm - Bridging the Gap Between Academia and EW
Jan. 25 | 2 PM

The innovation chasm - the difficulty of bridging the gap from university research to products and services available in the market - is key a problem in many fields of endeavour, but seldom in EW. While this may initially appear to be a positive conclusion, this is sadly not the case. Unfortunately, little innovation gap exists in EW simply because academics seldom work in EW. The reasons for this lack of academic consideration of EW appear obvious. The tremendous operational value of EW means that the majority of EW is classified, while academia is based on the principle of openly sharing information (publish or perish). Additionally, there is an argument that militaries kill people and that this is counter to the goal of academia, which is to develop people. However, neither of these apparently obvious issues is as clear or significant as it may appear. Based on the presenter's experience as an academic working in EW for more than a decade, it will be argued that EW is actually a particularly suitable topic for academic work. It is hoped that this discussion will assist EW professionals in approaching academics and convincing them that EW really is an interesting, rewarding field to work in.
