Innovatives SHS. The exhibition which promotes research in the humanities and social sciences
The INSHS created the Innovatives SHS exhibition, a splendid showcase for the diversity of expertise of humanities and social sciences researchers. The Institute has already organized four of these events - in Paris in 2013 and 2015, in Marseille in 2017 and in Lille in 2019.
The exhibitors come from research teams of all kinds - research units in France and other countries, host teams, Labcoms and start-up companies. They respond to a call for applications the year before the exhibition and are selected by a committee of innovation transfer experts from the INSHS, the Houses of Human Sciences and the CNRS regional delegations.
At these exhibitions researchers present their innovation transfer projects which have often been developed in collaboration with an industrial company, a local authority or an association.
In addition, the exhibition encourages meetings and sharing experiences between exhibitors themselves as well as between exhibitors and visitors. It is an event which is highly conducive to helping partnerships to begin and develop.
