Trouble in Paradise? Barriers to Open Innovation in Regional Clusters in the Era of the 4th Industrial Revolution

This essay introduces open innovation and clusters in the context of the fourth industrial revolution, thematically assesses barriers to open innovation in clusters, and pinpoints the causes that might influence networked ecosystems' open innovation processes. The results show that the perception of barriers blocking open innovation in clusters differs between clusters already active in open innovation and those that are still lacking in this field. With clusters playing a key role in the open innovation intermediary, increased visibility to collaboration not only for member companies but also for all participants in the regional innovation ecosystem.

The 4th Industrial Revolution requires strong Intellectual Property Laws: Where does Thailand stand?

The 4th Industrial Revolution's strong and fair intellectual property rights legislation is a fundamental pillar of the 4th Industrial Revolution. What intellectual property should be shielded; the length of protection; and remedies for violating intellectual property rights are three key areas of concern. Both the World Intellectual Property Organization and the World Trade Organization recognize intellectual property treaties in Thailand. This paper outlines the rights afforded under Thailand's intellectual property law. The analysis shows that the Thai law is extensive and robust, safeguarding both Thai intellectual property rights and those of the international community at large. The United States Trade Representative took Thailand from the Priority Watchlist to its Watchlist in December 2017 because of Thailand's involvement with intellectual property issues with the US in which they addressed a variety of intellectual property issues.

The Dynamic Nexus of Digital Evolution, Environmental Turbulence and Environmental Performance: A Case of High-tech Industries in the Emerging 4th Industrial Revolution

The current research seeks to investigate the potential effect of environmental turbulence on environmental performance and digital evolution. The statistical analysis of structural equation modeling reveals that the three variables have a dramatic influence on each other, which is why doing so. Market turbulence and technological turbulence have positive and major effects on Environmental turbulence that has been reported two hypotheses. In addition, environmental turbulence has a negative and significant influence on digital evolution and environmental results. However, digital change has a positive and significant effect on environmental sustainability in Malaysian small manufacturing companies.

Negative Influences of the 4th Industrial Revolution on the Workplace: Towards a Theoretical Model of Entropic Citizen Behavior in Toxic Organizations

In several instances, workplace culture and workplace outcomes have been affected by poor workplace culture and workplace outcomes in the aftermath of the digital age's job losses. Organizations and the general public have had access to reports about organizational success and environmental results as a result of the 4th industrial revolution and the burgeoning information technology. In addition, although organizational citizenship programs can produce significant benefits for a company, more notable and entropic workplace outcomes can also arise from its more subtle manifestations arising from workplace disruption and automation of work, as shown by the difficult conditions of digitization and automation of work. Organization citizenship behavior entropy is a methodological study that employs reliable and reliable sources of report data to back up a theoretical model of organizational citizenship behavior entropy in this paper. Extreme forms of organizational citizenship associated with the digital age, according to the theoretical model, can produce dysfunctional leaders and executive teams that result in organizational entropy.

Innovations in Teaching and Learning: Exploring the Perceptions of the Education Sector on the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR)

The fourth industrial revolution in the education industry is witnessing dramatic shifts as a result of technology advancements' disruptive impacts; however, there is insufficient information about the acceptability and consequences of the fourth industrial revolution in the education market. In addition, our report reveals a symbiotic link between the education industry and technology advancements. The results show that 4IR can enhance students' learning experience and transforms the workplace, but that the learning environment must be assessed, understood the facilitators, and barriers to 4IR diffusion. According to the results, the education industry has the ability to tap the innovations associated with 4IR that have been used in study and teaching to enhance learners' experiences; however, this will require significant change in education curricula as well as investments. The findings support both the theory and application of technology in education and the paucity of research on 4IR in the education sector, particularly in Africa.

Barriers and opportunities for hi-tech innovative small and medium enterprises development in the 4th industrial revolution era

At the same time, SMEs in the business are also struggling with a slew of challenges in their operation. The aim of the study is to identify the key barriers for the growth of SMEs in the 4th industrial revolution period; to draft policy-makers' pathways toward increasing SMEs' potential. The authors reviewed studies devoted to the SMEs' innovative growth, finding that the key barriers to growth for SMEs are related to inadequate government support in this sector.

Leveraging the 4th Industrial Revolution Technology for Sustainable Development of the Northern Sea Route (NSR)—The Case Study of Autonomous Vessel

The Fourth Industrial Revolution technology has been used in numerous industrial applications not only to enhance economic but also to obtain environmental and safety benefits. The master plan for the application of the 4IR technology to NSR sailing is unveiled. Even in the winter season, autonomous vessels in the NSR have economic benefits over the traditional vessel, and if we include autonomous vessels in the NSR, we have more cost-saving measures than in the Suez Canal Route in any season. In addition, self-driving vessels could be a way to ensure a safer crew working environment by minimizing the number of people on board. This contribution is twofold: We first estimate the voyage expenses using real fuel oil consumption measurement results, and second, this is the first attempt to use the 4IR technology as a solution to the Arctic development problem.

The Landscape of Scientific Discussions on the Competencies 4.0 Concept in the Context of the 4th Industrial Revolution—A Bibliometric Review

During the Hannover Fair, the German Federal Government announced its high-tech policy and measures to raise the German economy's competitiveness. Competence 4. 0 comes from a broader term of the 4th Industrial Revolution, also known as Industry 4. 0, which dates back to 2011, when the German Federal Government announced its high-tech initiative and policy to raise the German economy's competitiveness. Due to the continuing relevance of the Industry 4. 0 model in connection with current socioeconomic challenges around the world, rising curiosity on the part of researchers and the introduction of the above-mentioned terms in the literature, a network of patterns and relationships has developed constituting a scientific landscape of the entire phenomenon. According to the 4th Industrial Revolution, the aim of this paper is to map the existing body of scientific debate on Competence 4. 0. This study uses the Scopus database and the author's own algorithm to process the records.
