The healthcare sector faces radical transformation linked to disruptive technologies (AI, big data, etc) and new tendencies such as personalized medicine or silver economy. Innovation (eco)systems now take into account open innovation and non linear processes to accomodate new stakeholders. In the healthcare sector, scientific research still plays a key role but approaches centered on end-users lead to reconsidering the role of "patients" and the status of end-users. Non-linear and user-centric models make it possible to fasten innovation processes and contribute to reshape knowledge transfers between public and private actors. More flexible, iterative, innovation processes allow a faster hybridation of competencies and expertise.
In the healthcare sector, issues at stakes relate to the creation of new intermediaries. In most cases, stakeholders already know each other yet need to learn how to work together in a different way. In other cases, they do not even understand that working together might create value for the end-users, and it is necessary to build new bridges. Public and private actors have to adapt and to create new partnerships.
Genopole is now 20y old. It is the main important European cluster in genomics, with a focus on genotherapies and biotechs. In this research project commissioned by Genopole (Evry) and Bpifrance, we compare Genopole with:
We investigate how innovation intermediaries generate the intermediation function, and how to use it in the healthcare sector. We cover several dimensions:
For this research project, we have installed a field research protocol similar to the one processed for the projects on innovation platforms executed for Bpifrance Le Lab and Innovation Factory. We relate to semi-structured interviews, and some observation, with a systematic triangulation of perspectives. We always interview platform managers and the different categories of stakeholders active in, or benefitting from, the platform services. We have a focus on the microfoundations of the (open) innovation process, with a dedicated emphasis on institutions, interaction processes, decision-making processes, tangible and intangible resources. We develop a comparative analysis of different cases selected for their variety and for the possibility to contrast each dimension characterizing Geonopole against other practices and ways of working.
Here is the list of innovation platforms investigated during the research project.
