A new, more open eco-system
Innovation is a state of mind based on corporate, employee, and team capacity for openness. This way of looking at the world constantly raises questions about the company’s practices and solutions in respect of the changing expectations of customers and markets. Innovation does not stop at the doors of the company but requires contacts and collaborative projects with external partners (customers, suppliers, universities, etc.) to be developed in an assumed perspective of an extended company and open innovation!
Today the companies that make the difference do not innovate alone any more, they have built a successful, strong, and durable innovation ecosystem around themselves composed of major private or public stakeholders, competitiveness clusters, start-ups, researchers, and universities. Companies that innovate and succeed also systematically ask the following three questions: do I need to develop this solution (“make”), do I need to buy (“buy”) it to develop it or, should I develop it in a partnership (“co-innovation”).
A global network of leading partners
Neovia continues to structure its innovation eco-system worldwide and is committed to working more closely with partners specialised in nutrition and animal health, as illustrated by its approach related to its five priority innovation fields. Nevertheless, Neovia has already entered into a number of key partnerships with universities, start-ups, research institutes, competitiveness clusters, and large companies worldwide.
Partnership related to specific projects
Neovia combines its expertise with Innoval, Eilyps, Cogedis, and Adisseo to create Applifarm, a start-up. This platform will use various sources of data (management, feed, dairy operations, livestock advice, breeding, performance monitoring, sanitary advice, etc.) in order to help companies in the ruminant sector to create new services for livestock breeders and farmers.
« The creation of Applifarm in big data is a good example of Neovia’s collaborative and partnership approach. »
