For all new applications there is an area of tension between research, code work and practice. For a new technology practice always asks for guidelines, while on the other hand for writing codes or guidelines there is always the demand for experience from practice. Being active in practice as well as in research, while also contributing to code writing and research committees, the author is active in the described area of tension. In the paper several processes for introducing new developments are discussed and illustrated with some examples.
