Strategic Innovation Planning and Partnerships: Aligning Market, Products/Services/Processes and Technologies  [PDF]
Mauro Caetano, Daniel C. Amaral
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2013.41001

There are different tools to support the innovation planning, however, the paradigm of open innovation shows that there is a need to adopt different partners in the development of technology, product, service or process, and many of the proposals in the literature ignore this theme on the innovation process. This study proposes a generic model to strategic innovation planning, especially for technology push approach. The model was developed from an action research and literature review, which includes these elements. It contains three different stages ranging from the identification of markets and possible partners to carry out a strategic plan for innovation. The application identifies the technology core of the organization and possible technology, products, services or processes to be developed. Results on the practical application of the model over different innovation processes can be objects of future research.

The emergence of tropical medicine in Portugal: The School of Tropical Medicine and the Colonial Hospital of Lisbon (1902-1935)
Dynamis , 2008, DOI: 10.4321/S0211-95362008000100013
Abstract: the school of tropical medicine was founded in 1902 along with the colonial hospital of lisbon. the portuguese government recognized the importance of colonising the tropics and therefore supported the creation of a specific locus of medical training that would prove to be crucial to the clinical and experimental study of tropical diseases. this paper examines the importance of such institutions for the emergence of a new scientific area of research while also functioning as a consolidation factor for the third portuguese colonial empire. the creation of a new concept of medical practice with respect to tropical diseases characterizes a specific aspect of colonization: it underlies and drives the discourse of colonization itself. consultation of data collected by the portuguese tropical school and the colonial hospital during the period between 1902 and 1935, the starting point of the present study, seeks to shed light on the ongoing debate concerning the history of tropical medicine within european colonial discourse.
Bactéria ou parasita? a controvérsia sobre a etiologia da doen?a do sono e a participa??o portuguesa, 1898-1904
Amaral, Isabel;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702012005000004
Abstract: the etiology of sleeping sickness was unknown until the early twentieth century. this african disease soon became the main obstacle to european colonization. sending scientific missions to the colonies to monitor its progression in loco thus became inevitable. portugal sent the first research mission to angola in 1901, and the royal society of london sponsored two british missions to study the disease in entebbe (1902 and 1903). their results led to a controversy in which portugal was involved from 1898 to 1904, on the national and international circuits, analysed in this article.
In Conexione: a imagina??o do sagrado na ciberarte de Diana Domingues
Amaral, Leila;
Horizontes Antropológicos , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-71832008000100005
Abstract: based on the work of the brazilian plastic artist diana domingues we will present a reflexion on the imagination of the sacred in visual arts from the interpretation of themes, images, materials and formal categories which sustain contemporary language when dealing with the body in its relationship with the new communication technologies. the focus of the interpretation we offer will relate to the sense of sacred (or of that which is spiritual) in the interactive art of diana domingues. this sense refers to a state of widened communication and connectivity which is responsible for the expansion of the human conscience, by means of the body's experimenting the destabilization of fixed and complete worlds that is made possible by the new technologies. what is spiritual and sacred for this artistic movement is the non-essentialness of life and of human beings or life as pure connectivity. it is exactly this that becomes apparent through domingues' device-works. through them, this artist explores, in terms of ritual, performance and aesthetics, the interactive capacity of the new technologies in the creation of live environments and the visualization of life not as it is, but as what it can be like. what is sacred is this power gained from technology which, when activated by means of connectivity, makes human power itself to intervene in the real world and modify the environment appear. it is not the technology itself that is sacred, but the expansion of the universe parallel to the expansion of the conscience that is made possible by it, by means of widening connections between different systems. what is spiritual, then, is this constant state of transformation of conscience and human creativity to something beyond individual subjectivity, because the powers received by new technology are of an "ultra-human" order, of an "impersonal, ultra-subjective subject".
Níveis de análise da ancoragem das representa??es sociais da inteligência e do seu desenvolvimento: Das posi??es sociais objectivas às identidades sociais
Análise Psicológica , 1997,
Abstract: this research try to answer to two relevant problems in the field of the empirical productions about the relationships between social representations of intelligence an development and social identities. the first problem concerns to different levels of the social representations anchorage: on socio-educational objective insertions, which are very common taken as social identities (snelmman and raty, 1995, for example), and on social identities operationalized in terms of selfcategorization and identification to relevant categories. the second problem concerns to the predictive level of the refereed objective social insertions and social identities in what concerns to the representational answers. taking the profession (teachers versus non teachers) and the motherhood status (mothers versus non mothers) as independent variables, we analyse the sociological anchorage level. we analyse the psicosociological anchorage proceeding by the selfcategorization and identification measures to the categories ?teacher? and ?mother?. results shows differences between the two levels of anchorage. to answer to the second problem , we conduct a multiple regression analysis and the results shows that the stereotypes and selfcategorizations explain more variance of the representational answers than the objective insertions in socio-educational space.
Escola e representa??es sociais da inteligência
Análise Psicológica , 1999,
Abstract: in this article, the author proceed to a review of researches on social common sense theories about intelligence - a number of them with reference to the social representations theory - and its articulations with school dynamics. the researches are analysed following the sociogenetic and the ontogenetic dimensions of the common sense theories about intelligence. finally, the theory of the personal conceptions of intelligence, developed by carol dweck, it is also analysed, and some conclusions of a interesting portuguese research, articulating ontogenetic and sociogenetic factors of this kind of lay theories, are refereed.
New series of Portuguese population and employment, 1950-2007: implications for GDP per capita and labor productivity
Análise Social , 2009,
Abstract: the two most important international databases with portuguese gdp per capita and productivity from the 1950s onwards (ggdc and ameco) offer two contrasting pictures of its evolution, especially during the slowdown of 1973 to the mid-1980s. the main problem is the low quality of the underlying data for population and employment. this paper offers new estimates for population and employment and recalculates gdp per capita and productivity between 1950 and 2007. although confirming the main idea advanced in ggdc (a similar slowdown of gdp per capita and productivity), the series are different, and should be viewed as the new benchmark for the portuguese economy
Trends in biological dosimetry: an overview
Amaral, Ademir;
Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-89132002000500017
Abstract: biological dosimetry (biodosimetry) is based on investigations of induced biological effects (biomarkers) in order to correlate them with radiation dose. among the indicators employed in biodosimetry, scoring of chromosome aberrations is the most reliable method to quantify individual exposure to ionizing radiation. the technique, applied to circulating lymphocytes, has been developed into a routine procedure to evaluate the dose in the case of real or suspected accidental exposure. considering the radiosensitivity of lymphocytes in vitro and in vivo as being the same, the dose effect relationship obtained after in vitro irradiation of blood has been widely used, with medico-legal value, for evaluating individual radiation exposure. this report presents an overview of strengths, limitations and perspectives on biodosimetry.
Physical and biological dosimetry for risk perception in radioprotection
Amaral, Ademir;
Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-89132005000700034
Abstract: the increase in ionizing radiation (ir) applications, especially nuclear, has been followed by the growth of public concern for the potential associated risks. the public?s perception of such risks is often based on the philosophy that ir is harmful at any exposure level. on the other hand, although radiation workers have knowledge about the nature of ir and its potential health effects, the relationship between absorbed dose and risk is not well understood, principally for low doses. this report presents an overview of physical and biological dosimetry as complementary methodologies, as well as their possible contribution for improving risk perception in radioprotection.
Ainda conectado: o PT e seus vínculos com a sociedade
Amaral, Oswaldo;
Opini?o Pública , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-62762011000100001
Abstract: the main aim of this paper is to show that the workers' party (pt) continues to be strongly attached to civil society organizations and capable of attracting members after a series of programmatic and ideological changes in the last 15 years. through the evaluation of membership and organizational data and also the analysis of surveys conducted among pt's delegates between 1997 and 2007, we show that the party still has strong connections to civil society organizations and increased significantly its number of members during lula's government.
