    What kind of innovation lab to create?
    Innovation labs or innovative workspaces cover a plurality of realities, both in terms of their objectives and their form. Whether they are open innovation labs, internal incubators, or project platforms dedicated to innovation, it is necessary to approach each project to create a space, taking into account the specificities of the organisation and the teams that will take it on. To avoid falling into the trap of a stereotyped and empty innovation lab, we strive to co-create, with your teams and partners, the most appropriate device to facilitate and accelerate your innovation process. Schoolab draws on its experience at the crossroads of site, programme and community management to design your lab in a unique way.

  • How to animate your innovation space?

    How to animate your innovation space?
    There is no point in having an innovation lab if it is not animated. Too many companies focus on the physical layout of the place, to the detriment of its daily operation. We are convinced that a successful innovation lab is the fine combination of a diverse and committed community and a relevant service offer for your users (training, workshops, meetings, facilitation, mentoring, …). Schoolab trains your lab teams and joins them so that your innovation lab is a real driving force in the transformation of your working methods and the development of your projects, by leading the daily programming and service offer that will mobilize your community.

  • Our tips for launching your innovation centre

    To ensure that your innovation lab is truly an effective and relevant tool at the service of your projects and that it benefits all of your target communities, before each mission, we conduct an in-depth observation phase on the needs of collaborators/partners, as well as a review of your organization’s operating methods. Our challenge is to help you design an innovation lab and a program, specific to your business and HR issues, and to enable your location to take on its full potential.
