This project develops further the partnership between the newPIC chair and Innovation Factory and Bpifrance Le Lab, that materialized over the recent years with investigations on open innovation platforms. First, in 2016-2017, on innovation platforms located in Paris region; second, in 2017-2018, on innovation platforms located in continental France main regional hubs. The latter project also analyzed the emerging phenomenon of "mega-platforms".
These projects have notably produced a taxonomy and rationales for the analysis for the interaction between innovation platforms and, on the other hand, large established firms, SMEs and Medium size firms, and startups. We have also analyzed the role of innovation platforms in innovation-related local/ regional policy-making. We have proposed ratinoales for the interpretation of interactions with innovation communities, the support to open innovation initiatives, and the appraisal of business models and legal forms applicable to innovation platforms.

The 2018-2019 project confronts our research results to tendencies emerging in several countries in South-East Asia. We expect to draw a comparison between these tendencies and our data collected in France.

As compared to previous projects, our analysis will:

  • perform a stress test of the taxonomy produced in previous projects against data collected in Asia;
  • identify specificities of the dynamics for each ecosystem (communities, supply chain, business models) making a difference between South-Eeast Asian countries and France;
  • produce recommendations dedicated to decision makers in large established companies, SMEs and Medium size firms, and startups, and public policy makers.

Field research

 

logo

A specific difficulty of this project lies in the fact that newPIC chair faculties do not travel to South East Asia to process data collection themselves. We obviously take advantage of our actual experience with visits of local sciences parks and open innovation platforms for the comparison with France, but data collection is outsourced to a local consulting company selected by the commissioners of the project. Risks are mitigated because we have installed a joint learning process with the consultants in charge of data collection to preserve the best academic rigor and avoid any interpretation bias.

 
Research methodology

As in previous projects about innovation platforms, the research methods elaborates on semi-structured interviews and visits of the platforms.

The newPIC chair has structured and extensively documented the interview guidelines to be used to perform semi-structured interviews. These guidelines were discussed with the consultants before any actual interview on the field. All interviews are recorded with the interviewee's authorization. These recordings and the associated transcripts are made available in real time to the newPIC team, and the consultants are eventually asked to introduce further questions to allow more precise comparisons.

The list of innovation platforms has been initially proposed by the consultants, yet selection occured according to the principles of variety, relevance, and reliability required for an exploratory and abductive research project adhering the the strictest principes of academic rigor. The final decision for the selection of the sample of innovation platforms took into account the availability of interviewees, and the requirements for scientific triangulation.

 
Innovation platforms investigated in South-East Asia
 

 

The list of innovation platforms hosting field research activities is currently under negotiation.

This section is documented as soon as data collection progresses.
