    Two centuries after the first Industrial revolution in Europe, we can easily imagine that nothing else can be done. Absolutly wrong ! this is one of the lesson done by Armand Hatchuel, responsible of the Flesh called "Théorie et méthodes de la conception innovante" the Ecole des Mines Paris Tech.

    Indeed, Innovation became today a permament challenge through a questionning approach. Due to the international competitivity, it has to be an intensive daily innovation process. Whatever is the concerned area, in our everyday life or regarding Research and development, inside the industry or the Service sector, everything can be analysed through innovation. From engineers to artists, everyone must be involved in the process of innovation. Most of them are successfull thanks to worldwide community clusters usually based on a real goodwill of the participants for sharing knowledges and can lead to a non-profit term like for example open source's softwares on the web.

    Studies made by Armand Hatchuel and his team, are based on three main trends: to think innovation through the contemporary period, to define a new methodology and to support companies and their R&D departments to those changes. Topics already in the heart of Nutriset.
