  • Virtual World Tour - Destination Europe

     

    The current healthcare crisis is accelerating the transformations of society, our territories and ecosystems that have become so important in recent years. In this context, we can ask ourselves how the innovation ecosystems that have changed our lives are responding to the unprecedented challenges that are accelerating the transformation of the World? Are we at the dawn of a shift towards a new decarbonized, digital and ecological civilization?

     

    3 REGIONS OF THE WORLD - 3 DYNAMICS OF TRANSFORMATION - 3 MEETINGS

    Three days of Study Research Action Webinar that are part of 5 years of research in which 17 key destinations have been explored. The guiding questions of this approach are:

    • How are innovative ecosystems a factor in the competitiveness of continents, countries, regions and cities?

    • How are innovative ecosystems changing today in terms of culture, systems, management and structures?

    • How are the most dynamic innovative ecosystems likely to evolve in the future in the face of today's major global challenges?

    Focal points include: the role of the university-business-administration triangle, startup dynamics, systemic governance, the general interest, monetary policy, artistic avantgarde, collaborative processes, artificial intelligence and data, short-, medium-, and longterm foresight, benchmarking best practices, and the impact of pandemics.

    FROM INNOVATIVE ECOSYSTEMS TO TRANSFORMING ECOSYSTEMS

    After six consecutive years of traveling around the world, exploring the dynamics of the planet's main innovative ecosystems, Michel Saloff-Coste is proposing a virtual and collaborative journey for 2021 to leverage collective and prospective intelligence and disseminate more rapidly the key practices observed on the planet. A journey that foreshadows a hybrid journey for 2022. These three days are part of a "virtual world tour" of innovative ecosystems with a view to building a research and Futur Studies network. This study and reflection trip will mobilize academics, researchers, practitioners, senior civil servants and entrepreneurs.

  • LILLE ESP Online Mini-Courses

    Since the French government has instructed all higher educational institutions to remain closed to students through the end of the 2109/20 academic year, including summer sessions, we have had to postpone the 2020 European Summer Program until next year.

    However, the educational process is continuing in the form of distance learning courses, self-study, video lectures and/or other methods. With this in mind, the LILLE Programs have developed several free educational modules for anyone interested in learning more about the history, culture, art, and innovation of Lille, France. See the full list of courses below for module descriptions.

    Registration deadline:  15 June 2020
