Project Summary

The Covid-19 viral outbreak has endangered human health, industrial activities, income levels, trade relations and the economy. The goal of this project is to provide alternatives for the advancement of digitization and take a leap towards Industry 4.0, considering this crucial strategy for the success of measures to reactivate the value chain, in a post-Covid-19 scenario. Therefore, in line with PPSTI's priorities, our project´s proposed outcomes will be achieved in three phases:

D1: A preliminary Document: “Diagnosis of the Value Chains Most Impacted by Covid-19 in the APEC Region”- Selected case studies with suggested preliminary solutions.

Virtual Symposium to share and disseminate good practices and use of technologies 4.0: Artificial Intelligence; Internet of Things; Machine Learning; Big Data, Blockchain; Robotics; and Inclusive Digitization to articulate common visions D2: Final Report: Technological toolkit document for the dissemination of Industry 4.0 and increasing technical and commercial technological capabilities.

Relevance

Relevance – Region: In a context where COVID-19 has had a serious impact on the APEC region; several businesses from a wide range of sectors are either bankrupt or on the verge of default. While the concept of value chain analysis was introduced by Harvard Business School Professor Michael E. Porter in his book "Competitive Advantage", based on the concept of "business systems" Mckinsey & Co, in which the company was considered as a series of functions, and that the best way to understand it was by analyzing and evaluating the performance of each component and buying it with the competition; So the value chain is divided into two parts; primary activities: (internal logistics; operations; external logistics; marketing and sales; after-sales service) and secondary activities (infrastructure; organizational structure;human resources; technological development; supply and purchases); value chains of traditional sectors such as health, education, food, energy or construction. Hence, it is crucial to identify the value chains which have been more affected by the pandemic through a preliminary study which would determine which ones should be strategically prioritized. 

Consequently, our project will carry out a Diagnosis to identify the Value Chains most Impacted by Covid-19 in the APEC Region, whose challenges can be solved throughthe use of 4.0 technologies such as Artificial Intelligence; Internet of Things; Machine learning; Big Data, Blockchain; Robotics; and inclusive digitization through a capacity building symposium. This initiative will allow APEC members economies to learn, share, strengthen technical skills and knowledge conducive to the application of technology for the reactivation of the prioritized value chains. A crucial deliverable of the project is a technological Toolkit, which will offer documentary synthesis of the best practices of the participating economies. This Toolkit will be adapted to the generation or adaptation of new business models and/or the adoption of 4.0 technologies in production chains to ensure growth or take-off as intervention strategies to reactivate APEC economies through ICTs. Additionally, this Toolkit will contribute to the economic reactivation efforts undertaken by member economies and will serve as a preliminary effort to popularize the concepts and fields of action of technologies 4.0. It also intends to increase awareness of the existing challenges in the application of technology to promote the upgrade of value chains, supporting the digitization of its processes to derivatives for innovation; ensuring connectivity and above all resilience. 

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: The project is aligned with GPA’s overarching goals since it intends to contribute to the reactivation of value chains through digitalization, advancing the economic and technical cooperation agenda which is focused on sustainable growth and equitable development, while reducing economic disparities among APEC economies and improving economic and social well-being. Concretely, the initiative is aligned with the following GPA funding priorities: Digital Society and Inclusive Economic Participation through Digital Economy and Technology, Women, SMEs and Inclusive Growth and Driving Innovation for Sustainable Growth. 

Relevance – Capacity Building: This project aims to build the capacity and skills of APEC member economies to recognize the most appropriate technologies for their needs, enhancing their ability to generate innovation in strategic value chains through the use of 4.0 technologies such as Artificial Intelligence; Internet of Things; Machine learning; Big Data, Blockchain; Robotics; and inclusive digitization. In addition, the symposium will share and disseminate good practices from APEC economies; and will promote discussions with experts to articulate common visions.

Objectives

To promote the use of Industry 4.0 technologies (Artificial Intelligence; Internet of Things; Machine Learning; Big Data, Blockchain; Robotics) and Inclusive Digitization in a Post-COVID-19 context, focusing on the reactivation of the most affected strategic value chains across the APEC region. 

Specific Objectives:

1.   Identify the most affected in the APEC region through a preliminary evaluation.

2.   Disseminate good practices and foster the use of technologies 4.0, enabling economies to share their technical and commercial capabilities through technological tools.

Develop a document containing tools to disseminate technologies 4.0, enhancing technical and commercial capabilities, while fostering inclusive digitization in the prioritized value chains.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC: This project addresses the APEC 2020 priority area on “Inclusive Economic Participation through Digital Economy and Technology” as digital technologies can facilitate the achievement of balanced, inclusive, sustainable, innovative and secure growth. It is aligned with the 2017 Leader’s Declaration, which expresses the importance of innovation, science and technology as key drivers for economic growth.

Our initiative intends to promote social inclusion and gender equality in science. New technologies enable the participation of women in science and people suffering from disabilities by strengthening of teleworking as stated in the 2018 Leader’s Declaration that emphasized the importance of the economic empowerment of women and girls. In addition, it intends to fulfil the mandate of APEC SME Ministers in the 2019 APEC SME Ministerial Statement to improve the technological capacity in micro, small, medium and large companies, helping them successfully reintegrate into the market in the post-COVID-19 context. This project addresses the APEC 2020 priority area on “Inclusive Economic Participation through Digital Economy and Technology” as digital technologies can facilitate the achievement of balanced, inclusive, sustainable, innovative and secure growth.

This project promotes the use of new communication protocols and new data transfer speeds based on 5G networks and quantum technologies, to strengthen the markets and have an eco-friendly impact. As well as, to foster a flow of information to collaborate in researching new solutions to short-term challenges.     

Alignment – Forum: In line with the Mission Statement of the 2016-2025 PPSTI Strategic Plan, the project addresses the following aspects:

a) Creation and improvement of scientific capacity through the exchange of knowledge among experts from APEC economies.

b)  Identification of the cross-cutting innovation methodologies used by the public health sector to fight against COVID-19, which could be adapted and applied to other productive sectors.

c) Promote an environment conducive to innovation by introducing Transversal Innovation Methodologies and Disruptive Technologies.

Data collection:

• Project evaluation survey forms will be used to obtain participant feedback on the organization and results of the symposium,

• The profile of the seminar speakers and their PPT presentations will also be collected.

• The PO team will collect the above information through interviews, emails, pre- and post-symposium video conferences, and telephone meetings.


Linkages

In order to foster cross-fora collaboration we will request the participation of representatives from the Small and Medium Enterprises Working Group (SMEWG) and the Digital Economy Steering Group (DESG), two working groups whose agenda is closely aligned with the content and goals of the project. There have been projects promoting the use of technologies, however, the current pandemic presents an unprecedented challenge to strategic value chains, hence, the tools for ensuring economic recovery. APEC promotes secure economic growth and the acceleration of economic integration. Since the COVID-19 has disrupted trade and has had a significant negative impact on economic growth, in the APEC region, we consider these Forums are best suited for responding to these challenges, by embracing the use of cutting-edge technologies to reactivate the most affected value chains of the APEC region.

Sustainability

The sustainability of this project will continue to have a major impact on APEC's economies even after the project ends, with support to facilitate these linkages. The target audience would benefit enormously for embracing this solution and model learning from APEC economics experts.

Especially in the following fields:

a)  Institutional Sustainability: Political and business support internal capacity of the APEC economies and their management to ensure the continuity of the proposals included in the toolkit

b)   Financial sustainability (Financial Viability):

i)   The project depends largely on the availability of internal financing and it is important to adapt the sustainability strategy, anticipating that there may be economic limitations for financing.

ii)  The event will provide alternatives for completion through the financial contribution from Cooperation and feasibility alternatives for the implementation of internal projects in order to ensure the implementation of the proposals.

c)  Technological Sustainability: The reports of our baseline studies (preliminary diagnosis); the symposium to share and disseminate good practices and use of technologies 4.0: Artificial Intelligence; Internet of Things; Machine Learning; Big Data, Blockchain; Robotics; and Inclusive Digitization; and the development of a document on technological tools to disseminate 4.0 technologies and even digitization in strategic value chains detected, will be used and distributed electronically with the participants of the event as compiled digital material.

The commitment will be to maintain the page for a period of 5 years, in which our economy could continue to monitor the dissemination of the project results.

In addition, after the completion of the project, the PO will keep in contact with the symposium participants and will continue to participate in PPSTI meetings or events. The results of the project and its updates will be reported periodically to the PPSTI until sister or follow-up projects are established.

Note: We will measure progress on the outcomes of the project according to the section 10.

Project Overseers

The project supervisors will be Jessica Mora and Karina Maldonado from the National Council of Science, Technology and Technological Innovation of Peru (CONCYTEC in spanish). The specialists in charge have extensive experience in Innovation and Technology Transfer and Science and Technology. In recent years, we have been developing events such as technical thematic areas and transversal events; they regularly prepare technical reports on legislative and / or normative proposals related to science, technology and technological Innovation; carry out studies and develop new financial instruments for subsidies. They represent CONCYTEC, a governmental entity, before bodies related to STI. And we support the mobilization and organization of dissemination of the scientific and innovation culture in order to articulate the efforts of academia, business and the relevant stakeholders from the public sector, coordinating all the necessary processes for the successful execution of these commitments.
