WHO WE ARE
1/ INTERNATIONAL SPOTTING NETWORK
An exclusive global network of 19 leading universities, facilitated in partnership with UNESCO, spots more than 2,000 innovations per year. It continuously tracks the hottest topics in tech.
2/ EXPERT ANALYSIS
In the second continuous stage of the Netexplo Observatory’s intelligence work, its experts exa- mine the innovations spotted by the network. After strict selection and further research, they pro- duce forward-looking scenarios and describe crucial underlying trends.
3/ AGILE PRODUCT OFFERING
Once this valuable material has been spotted and decoded, it forms the basis of a clear, accurate and effective offering for our customers. The perspective needed for relevant analysis is combined with agile product design to ensure align- ment on current and future needs.
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.
