Objective: promoting the development of innovative smart technology methods to understand the dynamics of innovation within industries and the competitive environment of high-tech companies.

Developed within the GREThA (Groupe de Recherche en Economie Théorique et Appliquée) – UMR CNRS 5113, the platform draws on the researchers' work and intends to become a benchmark on innovation-related issues.
By experimenting with analysis tools and methods, the facility helps to bring basic research in the field of human and social sciences closer to the socio-economic world.

Boasting an operational team of GREThA scientists and research engineers, the platform has numerous structured databases including:

  • economic and financial data
  • scientific data
  • technological data
  • sectoral data
  • regulatory data

Its activities focus on three key challenges:

  • participating in the scientific steering of the University of Bordeaux and its components (IdEx, LabEx, EquipEx)
  • understanding and analyzing innovation dynamics to provide support to regional competitiveness clusters and centers of excellence in their strategic reflections and interpreting the economic and technological environment of industrial companies
  • assisting local authorities in their strategic reflections by promoting the transfer of knowledge and the deployment of economic/technological intelligence systems or departments at local and national levels.
