IOI participants are invited to join themed visits to Members’ facilities and other innovation hubs, where we can learn and share about collaborative innovation projects, lab experiences, and how such collaborations challenge and benefit organizations from a technical and editorial standpoint.
On our first day we will be at the Maison Ronde, the landmark building where Radio France is headquartered. We will gain insights into Radio France Digital, a selection of key innovative products, the "accélerateur d'idées", and the overall approach to driving and implementing innovation in the organization. On the second day we will go to Station F, where we will discover how Radio France uses the "world's biggest start-up campus" to connect with start-ups and leverage open innovation.

Innovation is a crucial stepping-stone for making the transition to becoming a fully digital media organization relevant to all audiences. Innovation must be geared towards providing digital audiences with enhanced content and services, on a variety of platforms, while maintaining high production values.
IOI – Implementing Open Innovation – was launched in late 2016 as an initiative jointly coordinated by the EBU Academy and the EBU Technology & Innovation Department. Its main activity is a series of themed visits that participants are invited to join a few times per year.
The aim is to explore how EBU Members – and others – successfully manage to take good ideas from proof-of-concept to prototype, beta version and, hopefully, ‘business-as-usual’ operation. Or, if not, to ensure that they fail quickly and early so as to minimize wasted resources.
