Research and educating programs intended to industry employees should be reviewed on a regular basis and efficiently and professionally updated in order to reflect rapid changes in scientific progress. Their implementation policy should be as short as possible with regard to demonstrate how to effectively explore the complex theoretical information for achieving fast realization in industry. This research analyses the experiences of the cooperation between Institute of Mechanics of Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and a Medium Enterprise in town of Yambol in Bulgaria in resolving mentioned difficulties working in the field of energy-efficient pipe insulation technology.
If the competent firms from manufacturing industry could cooperate with academic researchers both together could achieve much, and recently in Bulgaria this is increasingly happening. This is expected to change the nature of innovation from an internal research and development process to a more cooperative innovation. The idea that anyone has the possibility to profit from manufacturing, and everyone will benefit from more and better innovation was proved by realisation of the fast project coordination. This work presents how it can exchange from academic top-down and enterprise bottom-up approaches into a two-way cooperation. Only that way the industrial innovation should turn in a process that rapidly follows the scientific development. Thus the leading idea of the European Horizon 2020 could be emphasized and this practical advance of the Academy-industry research projects could be quickly incorporated in the educating practice.
In Bulgaria the benefits are expecting to be two:
First of all, ingenious industrial solutions in the field of energy-efficient pipe insulation technology need a close collaboration between research institutions and companies for developing appropriate skills. As a result the technological improvements will rapidly result in superior commercial products.
The second advantage is that the researchers can encourage the industrial producers to be involved in Ph. D. programs. In order to transfer knowledge into the manufacturing industry, researchers should facilitate turning the practitioners into an innovative force that carries high research like academicals do.
