The Open Innovation service can help you gain momentum with your project, whether you are a project initiator, start-up, micro-business or SME, or a public research body. It is a unique opportunity to organise meetings and present your innovations to major companies in the fragrance and cosmetics industry. It allows you to directly exchange with the relevant, qualified people.
This service is available to all fields of activity: raw materials, end products, packaging, logistics, etc., and to all types of innovation: technological innovations, service innovations, marketing innovations, etc., no matter the development stage: idea, project development, concept maturation, product or service development, market access.
Big names in the industry take part, because Open Innovation allows them to call on skills outside of the company to develop innovative products and services. This also helps to boost innovation, save time and reduce R&D financing risks. The goal is to support innovative concepts within the scope of a win-win relationship respecting partnerships.
Since 2015, more than 900 projects have been submitted from 35 different countries, and more than 500 meetings have been organised.
From 2015 to 2018 editions, 12 Major companies are involved at the Open Innovation.
