Healthcare was a domain at ease with the cascade or techno-push model of innovation, with a special attention on experimentation structured by legal test protocols. The management of innovation in healthcare has attracted renewed attention with the reference to AI, “big data”, biotechs, medtechs and with the reference to user-centric innovation (as most often illustrated with medtechs and biotechs). Research in healthcare is as complex and risky as ever, but time frames for the development of innovation have adapted to the new realities of AI and biotechs, and the scope of experimentation with new stakeholders. Disruptive innovation in healthcare is a crucial driver for the evolution for this industry over the last years.

This special issue focuses on new practices for the management of innovation in all subareas of healthcare. The special issues covers the development of user-centric innovation and of experimentation in healthcare, with a special focus on complementarities with traditional cascade top-down (techno-push) innovation. User-centric innovation in healthcare makes it also possible to test new business models with the appropriate stakeholders and to analyze the adoption of innovation. The healthcare domain is original because it provides field research to analyze the dynamics in the Triple or Quadruple Helix (State, research, industry, actual people) and the interactions between them in local ecosystems. It provides also a relevant domain to question the status of "user" in user-centric innovation.
