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:

  • innovation clusters;
  • innovation platforms focused on incubation and acceleration;
  • open innovation platforms;
  • global open innovation networks.

We investigate how innovation intermediaries generate the intermediation function, and how to use it in the healthcare sector. We cover several dimensions:

  • missions enacted by the intermediaries;
  • their impact on communities and how to manage them
    (with or without reference to a physical space);
  • components and dynamics of the ecosystem
    (incl. demographics, geography and agglomeration effects);
  • governance and business models;
  • the ability to accomodate technological disruptions impacting the healthcare sector.

Research methodology

For this research project, we install 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.

 

Selection of cases for the comparison

The list of innovation platforms hosting field research activities is currently under negotiation. This section is documented as soon as data collection progresses.
