Open Innovation

Come and meet key accounts through the OPEN INNOV’ service

The OPEN INNOV’ service allows you to present an innovation project and exchange with business experts from large companies in the cosmetics industry.

These large companies have an open innovation policy and wish to work collectively by making their expertise available to project leaders.

Whether you are an innovative project leader without a structure, from a start-up, a small business, a SME, an ETI or a research laboratory… this service allows you to present your innovations at different levels of maturity. This networking will allow you to: measure the interest of the subject, to know the stakes of the companies, to set up a collaboration, to work on a direct applicability, to develop your business…

The innovations presented may concern the entire cosmetic value chain: raw materials, measurements, tests, packaging, materials, formulation, industrialization, finished products, logistics, retail…

These innovations can respond to major challenges of the cosmetics industry such as: naturalness (greentech, biotech, circular economy, up-cycling…); safety (toxicological, microbiological, quality, traceability…); product performance (molecular, biological, physiological characterization. ); understanding consumers and proposing offers that are as close as possible to their expectations (personalization, connected beauty, devices, etc.) and developing sensoriality and well-being (haptics, neuroscience, etc.) provided by cosmetics.

Since 2015, more than 1400 projects have been submitted from 35 different countries, more than 600 meetings have been organized.
