This research project is commissioned by Bpifrance le Lab and Innovation Factory.
The project updates the activities executed in 2016-2017 and commissioned by the same institutions. In 2016-2017, our research has produced a taxonomy on innovation platforms. It focused on innnovation platforms located in Paris and its region, Ile de France. The 2017-2018 project investigates major innovation platforms in continental France's main regional hubs. It also focuses on the modalities used by these platforms to support the digital transformation of services and industrial firms.
This research not only investigates missions and ways of working, but also the interactions with territories. It covers the interactions with local and regional governments, the complementarities with other stakeholders in charge of implementing (local) public policies, and the ways to adapt to expectations of private companies (of all sizes, incl. large established firms, SMEs and Medium industrial firms). This report shows also how the innovation platforms investigated in 2017, located in Paris and its region, adapt to the evolutions confronted during the last 12 months.
The report elaborates on the taxonomy produced in 2017 and described in the previous edition of this report. We confirm several drivers: the role of communities based on reciprocity; the catalyst effect of the physical space; the complementarities between different sources of revenue in order to elaborate the platforms' business models; the diversity of legal and governance designs; and the rationales for opening up the portfolio of activities and services.
The report also confirms that innovation platforms combine the two functions of brokers of content and brokers of networks, in order to break silos inside ecosystems.
The 2018 report points out 5 challenges to be addressed in innovation platforms:
