Innovation ouverte et PME

Logo_frLe numérique introduit partout des échanges et des modes de fonctionnement collaboratifs : l'innovation ouverte s'impose de plus en plus comme le modèle général de l'innovation.
Ce doit donc être la priorité absolue des dispositifs d'aide publics ou privés que de soutenir l'innovation ouverte dans les petites et moyennes entreprises (PME), pour favoriser leurs croissance et leur transformation en entreprises de taille intermédiaires (ETI) créatrices d'emplois nouveaux.
Il est aujourd'hui reconnu par nombre d'études économiques (OCDE, Banque de France...) que les emplois nouveaux en France viendront pour l'essentiel de la création et du développement de PME et d'ETI, et, plus précisément, de la transformation des PME (de 11 à 250 personnes) en ETI (de 250 à 5000 personnes).

The Value of Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences to National Priorities: A Report for the National Science Foundation 2017

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and MedicineNearly every major challenge the United States faces—from alleviating unemployment to protecting itself from terrorism—requires understanding the causes and consequences of people’s behavior. Even societal challenges that at first glance appear to be issues only of medicine or engineering or computer science have social and behavioral components. Having a fundamental understanding of how people and societies behave, why they respond the way they do, what they find important, what they believe or value, and what and how they think about others is critical for the country’s well-being in today’s shrinking global world. The diverse disciplines of the social, behavioral, and economic (SBE) sciences ―anthropology, archaeology, demography, economics, geography, linguistics, neuroscience, political science, psychology, sociology, and statistics―all produce fundamental knowledge, methods, and tools that provide a greater understanding of people and how they live.
