An Open Innovation Lab focusing on the future of mobility

Renault Open Innovation Lab – Le Square aims to define new ways of working and to explore the future of #mobility by opening up the company's boundaries and encouraging cooperation around new kinds of business organisation with actors from the French ecosystem.

"Renault has been making cars for over 100 years", says Pierrick Cornet, Alliance Global Director of Advanced Engineering. "But as our industry is changing very rapidly, we have to stay at the leading edge and continuously innovate by working on new technologies, connected cars and electric vehicles, defining the future of #mobility so we can offer our customers the best service possible."

Renault Innovation Lab – Le Square has been designed as a truly experimental laboratory, open to its business environment and close to the #renault and Renault-Nissan Alliance teams to make the proliferation of ideas easier. Managed jointly by Renault's internal teams and external partners working towards a common goal, it will help to reinforce the innovation strategy of #renault and the Alliance.

After Silicon Valley and Tel Aviv, #renault chose France as the location for the third #renault Innovation Lab because the country already has 228 business incubators and 49 accelerators. The Ile de France region alone has over 3,000 startups(1). Moreover, Paris is ranked fourth among the most attractive world capitals for investors, who consider Paris a city conducive to advanced technology(2).
