The aim of this article is to better under- stand how the innovation ecosystem of Aalto University, in Helsinki, Finland, was structured in the early 2000s. Relying on an analysis of secondary data as well as on the principles of a structural analy- sis of the network, we located the actors and their connections over the emergence period of this ecosystem. The results show the coexistence of two spaces organized as socio-cognitive networks able to interact and reinforce each other. A territorialized space, focused on an innovation dynamic built on the convergence strategy of the three university rectors involved at Aalto; and a deterritorialized space built by a community of actors focused on the affir- mation of proposals and ideas to imple- ment new innovation governance practices.

La contribution présente une analyse empirique des conditions d’émergence d’un écosystème entrepreneurial dédié à l’innovation dans la région d’Helsinki en Finlande au cours des années 2000, réalisée à partir de multiples sources d’informations parcellaires mais dont la diversité assure la solidité. Elle vise deux objectifs principaux. En premier lieu, il s’agit de mettre en évidence un dispositif original au plan méthodologique permettant de procéder au repérage de phénomènes émergents sur la base d’une analyse qualitative mais structurée selon les principes de l’analyse structurale de réseau. En second lieu, les données sont susceptibles de fournir des représentations originales des structures sociocognitives qui fondent l’existence d’écosystèmes d’affaires et de mieux comprendre leurs règles de fonctionnement « clandestins » ou implicites sous la forme de configurations relationnelles singulières. Dans le cas présent, on aperçoit dans le cas d’Helsinki la construction sociale qui a permis la production d’un consensus sur une vision partagée du futur de cette région à l’initiative d’’un nombre très limité d’acteurs individuels mais dans une configuration relationnelle très synergique et cohésive. On a ainsi pu trouver des racines très profondes au projet de création d’une nouvelle université de l’innovation. De la même manière, on a pu montrer que la construction territorialisée d’un écosystème était directement connecté à l’existence d’un réseau de « gourous », de think tanks et d’institutions puissantes qui leur servent de véhicules pour imposer leurs conceptions des nouvelles gouvernances et modalités d’organisation de l’innovation. Un écosystème doit rester un espace ouvert. [less ▲]

The goal of this conference was to emphasize the places’ need for a good positioning. Considering the numerous target markets of a place (exporters, investors, residents, tourists, manufacturers), a city has to focus on 4 marketing factors to improve its attractiveness: attractions, people, image and infrastructures. Building on the examples of Lyon, Montreal, Freiburg and Helsinki, we suggested some development tracks for the city of Liege. [less ▲]

Creative industries, since 1997, have become assets for economic and cultural development. Nations around the world, at different political levels, are now focusing on the development of a creative industries policy. The success of this concept can be linked to the fact that this meta-sector has one of the highest levels of economic growth in these last years. Despite the growing number of studies on creative industries, the rationale behind the implementation of this type of policy remains unclear. We seek to further understand how and why local governments are participating in creative industries and how it is spatially acted, by using the concepts of governmentality and heterotopias, as defined by Foucault (1991a, 1997), to explore the rationality and the dynamics behind this policy. Our study focuses on the case of the “Grand Lyon” and its economic development agency. In early 2006, Lyon decided to launch a creative industries policy focused on its two existing creative clusters linked to fashion and video games, Lyon Vision Mode and Lyon Game respectively. A transversal approach was taken to include various and often unconnected sectors. Lyon is the third largest French city with a strong industrial economy. The city has the ambition to be in the top fifteen of the creative regions in Europe. Our results demonstrate that, first of all, the practices of creative industries highlight the different types of technologies that were expressing the rationality and mentality of the ‘governors’. We also found that the policy deployed by the local government created two types of heterotopias (Foucault, 1997). These separate and different spaces appeared as places for creativity in the development and implementation of the creative industries strategy. These heterotopias help to build a sense of community among the participants, and create a tribe, clan, or as defined by Florida (2002), a class. [less ▲]
