Task

The purpose of Audencia Innovation is to initiate and coordinate Audencia Business School operations in connection with innovation, design and entrepreneurship, including:

  • promoting instructional innovation and digitalization in the School's various programs
  • stimulating innovation in research, design and entrepreneurship
  • supervising support for students and graduates backing an entrepreneurial project

Audencia Innovation promotes cooperation and cross-functionality in Audencia training, incubation and research projects in the areas of innovation, design and entrepreneurship. The integration of these three components in the basic or further vocational training programs helps give (future) managers the capacity to create, initiate and innovate.
The Institute hosts the instructional and digital innovation Factory and develops new spaces for innovative learning. It also supports innovation projects in all Audencia activities and coordinates the participation of Audencia in innovative ecosystems and projects at regional, national and international levels.
Audencia Innovation works closely with Alliance schools for all of its activities, and in particular as part of the Centrale-Audencia-ensa joint business incubator.
