The Observatory of new industrial, economic, and financial ecosystems in emerging economies, originally incubated at Ecole des Mines – ParisTech, is a reference platform for forward-looking energy, technology, environment and mining industrial ecosystems.
Our expertise is centred on the issues of national markets, industries and innovation in emerging countries and their impact in the global economy, revolving around two key ideas:
That Emerging economies enable innovative industrial and financial ecosystems.
And that many of these ecosystems already contribute to the emergence and development of new global business models.
(The Observatory of Emerging Industries is supported by IMD – Institut de la Mobilité Durable Renault-ParisTech, OEEC – Observatory of Emerging Economies Consultancy UK Ltd, and Osservatorio sulle economie emergenti di Torino)
