Covid-19 and disruption of innovation processes



Prof. Dominique Foray participated in a debate on Forum RTS to discuss how crisis create innovation opportunites in certain domains.

The Covid 19 crisis accelerated greatly innovation in the pharma industry and vaccine research, because of the gigantic benefits for society, because of its speed of development and because there weren’t any uncertainties on the solution. What about other domains? Could innovation be reorganized as drastically to solve today’s grand societal challenges?

Dominique Foray debated together with Aurore Bui, consultant in social innovation and Patrick Schefer, director of the Fondation d’aide aux entreprises - Geneva.
