The Netexplo Observatory has always looked at tech in terms of how it’s used. We focus on the individuals who are making tech part of their lives.
Citizens, consumers, NGO or startup founders, students, researchers, artists, doctors and farmers – above all, people.
That’s why we’re just as interested in an innovation created by a student in an emerging country as in an app designed by a multinational. The only criterion is whether it is life-changing. For a person, a family, a neighbourhood, a city, a continent or the world.
That’s one of the promises of digital tech. The impossible keeps losing ground. These limitless prospects need to be decoded and put into context with analysis, criticism and guidance.
This is the Netexplo Observatory’s vocation. For you.
THE STORY SO FAR
2007, Netexplo Observatory is founded with the launch of the annual Forum, in partnership with the French Senate, the ministry for the digital economy and HEC Paris, one of Europe’s top business schools. The exclusive event shares the highlights of a year’s observation of global innovation with 1,500 executives from client companies.
2017, the 10th Netexplo Forum at UNESCO House, Paris, on April 26th and 27th. In addition to these 2 exceptional days, French executives will respond to the innovations and issues featured in the Forum through online sessions streamed from Les Echos’ TV studios on April 28th.
In 2017, 10 years on from its creation, Netexplo has become a pooled ecosystem of unique offerings, based on global intelligence in tech innovation and designed in line with business issues. The goal is to give clients the knowledge and understanding of tech needed to grasp the issues and support strategic actions by the teams driving the company’s digital transformation in terms of employee and customer innovation, communication, information systems and overall strategy.
