Fujitsu’s Open Innovation Service, and it’s application to quantum inspired drug discovery platform, and our engagement with Glasgow University and the UK Space Agency

Too many digital transformation projects are focused on demonstrating quick wins without a clear understanding of a sustainable business model or solution scalability, with the majority of projects failing fast instead of scaling fast.  Fujitsu’s Open Innovation Service is focused on understanding public sector business challenges and aligning the right business model and technology to move a challenge to concept and then live services delivering business and societal outcomes at pace.  We will talk through how we have used this approach to develop a global quantum inspired drug discovery platform and engage with the University of Glasgow and the UK Space Agency to look at solving the challenge of removing hazardous debris from space.
