Effectiveness of RTOs
Research and Technology Organizations (RTOs) are in the business of generation and dissemination of knowledge. Even in this business, there is a distinction between research in a particular science discipline and industrial research. Industrial research is a branch of scientific research oriented to applications in the industrial production system. The tag ‘applications in the industrial production system’ makes industrial research far more complex than pure scientific research. The combustion potential of fossil fuel is a scientific discovery. To make it work together with various other scientific principles for moving a motorcar is the first step towards industrial research. Subsequently the success in laboratory experiments has to be made to work on the shop floor and then for mass production. The process becomes more and more complex as many scientific principles work together. When it comes to production, scientific and technological principles have to work with a variety of other factors outside the realm of scientific and technological experiments in the laboratory.5
