User driven innovation at CEA Tech
Speaker: Timothée Jobert, researcher at CEA-Leti, Grenoble, France
This talk gives a tour d'horizon of the CEA Technological Research Department and focuses on the open innovation platform. For the last 10 years we have been seeking to mix technological sciences with research in art/creativity and social sciences. Through an incremental approach of collaboration with technology project teams, over the years we have reached an efficiency that reinforces our position and legitimacy inside the company. This is witnessed by the evolution of our position in the technology teams: from concept and prototype assessments to co-design / from outsider (service provider) to insider (team member). We shall illustrate this evolution through several examples in the fields of mobility (bicycle, electric car, car sharing) and energy (smart grids, smart city, air quality management etc).
