On November 24th, we had the pleasure to join the 2021 edition of the Public Innovation Month initiative by participating at the round-table entitled “Innovation in work practices, meeting new initiatives” which was organized within the Creativity space of the Innovation Lab of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region.
An exciting and inspiring event during which many key ideas emerged and where we had the opportunity to meet representatives from:

What is the Innovation Lab of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region?
In order to introduce innovative working methods based on collective intelligence, the executive of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, the largest region in France, has set up a laboratory intended to bring out new ideas to its agents : the Fontaine de la Corderie. Inaugurated in 2020 in the premises of the Maison de Région in Limoges, this unique place is a Regional Public Innovation Laboratory, reflecting the will of the executive of the New Aquitaine Regional Council (8,000 agents, including 2,400 at headquarters and 5,600 in the high schools) to introduce innovative working methods based on collective intelligence.
