Promoting innovation

This first edition focused on SMEs and their innovations. The Cosmetic Valley has made the decision to back Open Innovation and use Cosmetic 360 as a platform for bringing together innovative project leaders (start-ups, laboratories, SMEs, microenterprises, etc.) and the Research and Innovation teams of the major names in the competitiveness cluster (Boots, Chanel, Johnson&Johnson, L’Oréal, LVMH Recherche, Puig, Shiseido) through pre-arranged meetings. About 250 applications have been submitted and 180 meetings have been held over the two days of the fair. According to the organisers, 44 projects (out the 250 which were presented) should lead to a cooperation project during the coming year.

Cosmetic 360 welcomed several foreign delegations from: Japan, Spain, China, Malaysia, Colombia, Quebec, Taiwan, Israel, …

Putting innovation under the spotlights has been the main concern of the organizers. "Our goal is not to make a copy of a catchall event such as Bologna or Shanghai but to promote the R&D projects conducted with the cosmetics industry,” expalined Marc-Antoine Jamet.

Exhibitors played the game and agreed to sum-up their fields of excellence in a few words, which then were written at the top of their stand, thus largely facilitating the visitors’ experience in this dense and eclectic event.
