An interview with Emmanuel Thomazo, Deputy Strategy Director, Total S & P, to give an updated overview of the issues that structure innovation within the French energy group.
(Français) Second billet d’une série.
The outside view on efforts undertaken to enhance the French innovation system is refreshingly severe: the new organization introduced by reforms conceals the unshakable hold of the old system, as well as the low appetite of France for globalization. Having eliminated the analytical room usually provided for wishful thinking, such a non-accommodating message invites us to renew from the ground up the way we view innovation and the economic and social changes it is a part of. First post of a series.
