Take part in a unique and unprecedented event!

Businesses no longer rely on a vertical R&D, isolated and monolithic: open innovation has shown that creativity and productivity of R&D benefits from the opening to a wider community.

The blockchain - seen as the next web revolution - allows creative individuals to unite to innovate together while keeping the added value they have created. Initially confined to the field of bitcoin and financial transactions this technology has a potential of disruption in multiple sectors. But beyond business applications, the blockchain gives rise to a new paradigm which allows to completely rethink the approaches of co-creation and open innovation. Innovators will finally be able to regain the value they create! And by generating a healthy coopetition between them, blockchain unleashes creativity and collective intelligence to a more ethical innovation.

The blockchain introduces a new dimension for configuring the exchange of information between individuals and competing companies and thus allows the emergence of new governance models. The profitability of a co-creative approach of projects can then be considered.

This unique forum is the first organized on the theme of blockchain applied to open innovation. It combines forward thinking (keynote speeches, round tables discussions) with workshops on application domains, business meetings, pitches by startups. Through numerous use cases, the Forum illustrates the challenges and opportunities of coopetition and its blockchain tools
