On our first day, we will visit La Maison de la radio, the landmark headquarters of Radio France. During our visit, we will gain insights into Radio France Digital, the department handling innovative products and services, as well as the Accélerateur d'idées while also learning about the overall strategy driving and implementing innovation within the organization.

Background information on IOI

Implementing Open Innovation is a strategic programme jointly run by the EBU Technology and Innovation Department and EBU Academy (part of the EBU Media Department). The aim is to explore how EBU Members – and others – can successfully take good ideas from proof-of-concept to prototype, to a beta version and, hopefully, to a ‘business-as-usual’ operation. Its secondary aim is to ensure that projects without potential are discarded early on, thus avoiding tying up financial resources.
