Our Analysis

  • A disruption of value chains and traditional R&D activities by new entrants, likely to «break the rules”

  • Vanishing R&D boundaries: information circulates freely, and actors are increasingly autonomous

  • The race for innovation is stepping up a pace, companies are seeking to detect any weak mutation signal from the sector to be the first to take a position (“Time To Market”) and secure the scale-up

  • Innovation processes are opening up to external partners, with a return on investment frequently mitigated. There is a need to break down silos and take the corporate culture a step forward

Our methodology consists of identifying partnerships with high added value through a clarification of the project brief and the use of advanced scouting tools.
