Research and innovation
Facing the future, Huawei's innovation will move from the innovation 1.0 era of technology and engineering, products and solutions based on customer needs to the Innovation 2.0 era of theoretical breakthroughs and basic technology inventions driven by vision.
Open innovation, bringing together the wisdom and innovation ability of all mankind, illuminating the world and Huawei
Innovation 1.0 is based on customer needs and challenges. It is technological innovation, engineering innovation, product and solution innovation, and innovation from 1 to n. The core is to help customers and partners enhance competitiveness, help customers increase revenue or reduce costs, so as to achieve business success. In the past, Huawei in the fields of wireless, optical network and intelligent terminal, through a large number of engineering and technological innovation, has brought full commercial value to customers and created huge social value.
Innovation 2.0 is based on the vision assumption of the future intelligent society, breaking the theoretical and basic technological bottlenecks that restrict the development of ICT, realizing theoretical breakthroughs and technological innovation, and innovation from 0 to 1.
Taking "open innovation and inclusive development" as the ideological concept: the high uncertainty of theoretical breakthrough and technological invention determines that closed innovation cannot be adopted. Huawei Innovation 2.0 combines universities, research institutions, academia and industry to jointly promote the use of global scientific research resources and talents for cooperative innovation.
Take "vision hypothesis + technology breakthrough" as the methodology: starting from the vision hypothesis, we study the problems that people may encounter in the future intelligent world in the scenes of life, work, entertainment, health maintenance, etc., catch the future technology direction and business opportunities with problems, and incubate new industries; at the same time, we boldly assume on this basis and plan our technical elements.
Take information as the center, increase the layout of "mutated technology": around the whole process of information generation, storage, calculation, transmission, presentation, and information consumption, on the one hand, research and explore the future technology innovation of Yanchang online, on the other hand, layout the mutated technology innovation.
Taking "university cooperation and technology investment" as a strategic measure: the participation of the industry can accelerate the commercial landing of research results, and share the challenges, real scenarios and needs of the industry with scientists to further clarify the research direction. Huawei will promote innovation 2.0 in various ways, including supporting research of universities and scientific research institutions, self built laboratories, multi-path technology investment, etc.
Innovation is the root of Huawei's existence and development in the past three decades. Huawei continues to increase its investment in future oriented frontier technology exploration and basic research, with an annual investment of about US $3-5 billion. Huawei now has about 15000 people engaged in basic research, including more than 700 Ph.D. in mathematics, more than 200 Ph.D. in physics and chemistry, and 5, At the same time, Huawei cooperates with more than 300 universities and more than 900 research institutions and companies around the world to make full use of global innovation resources, take an open innovation path, attract professional talents from all over the world to carry out research work, integrate the problems of the industry, the thoughts of the academic community, and the belief of venture capital, and jointly innovate, so that the innovation results will be for the whole mankind and the whole production Industry sharing lights up the world and Huawei.
