Innovation Tuesdays: major R&D issues and challenges – 6:30 pm / 8 pm

Our society is currently facing challenges that are unprecedented in their scope, urgency, globality and interactions. The ecological challenge is the most systemic with global warming, but also pollution, the fall of biodiversity and the depletion of key natural resources.

The question arises as to the ability of the R&D community to address these simultaneous challenges, through their diagnosis and the development of solutions to help solve them: multi-dimensional analysis of global R&D activity, the relationship between R&D, innovation, production and wealth creation.

Live on the YouTube channel Les Mardis de l’innovation.

Paris Expo Hall 7⎢1 pl. de la Pte de Versailles – Paris 15 (M° Pte de Versailles)

The lab-ah: GHU Paris’ laboratory for cultural innovation through design.


Founded and directed since 2016 by Carine Delanoë-Vieux and Marie Coirié, the lab-ah draws on the skills of design and cultural development to design and produce experiments around welcome and hospitality, with hospital users: patients, families and professionals.


Among its modes of action: the “chantiers d’attentions”, the lab-ah labs, and a scientific and cultural program.


And it is within the sites of attention that the design seeks to develop alternatives of appeasement, as for example, the space of appeasement: research-action which questions the evolution of the room of isolation towards a space of appeasement, or Psy-son: research project at the crossroads of the clinic, technologies for the music and the sound, and the design.

To summarize, the aim is to design, implement and evaluate a sound broadcasting device that allows to decrease the patients’ incipient anxiety in order to avoid the use of coercive measures.

When we know the development of the design of French loudspeakers, we can only get excited about a project with a form as accomplished as the use!

From this initiative came the Sounds for coma project and the possibility of acoustically modulating anxiety in neuro-resuscitation patients.

Hospital researchers from Neuro Sainte-Anne met with research teams from IRCAM (Institute for Research and Coordination of Acoustics and Music) – one of the largest public research centers in the world dedicated to musical creation and scientific research – to discuss the question of interactions between sound and emotions in a therapeutic context. A meeting that led to the research project, within the new building of Neuro Sainte-Anne, of rooms with controlled and modular acoustic properties.

The creation of resuscitation rooms is a unique clinical and translational neuroscience research project that aims to improve the experience of patients in the ICU and their management.


There is the sound, but there is also the taste! Lab-ah’s innovation through design laboratory also focuses on projects such as L’Eau à la Bouche: making meals more of a pleasure during hospitalization in psychiatry, where it is an experiment to improve the meal experience for hospitalized patients.

Facilities and accessories that create the atmosphere of a dining room as a place to live, and allow for a degree of personalization of plates for patients.

At the same time, a workshop on preparing and serving snacks offers professionals the opportunity to rediscover the pleasure of the culinary gesture within the framework of hospital constraints.

The experimentation is continuing today with two perspectives: on the one hand, the realization of a satisfaction survey on this theme throughout the GHU, carried out with the catering service, the dietetic service and the quality department; on the other hand, support for the development of a trolley-cafeteria carried out by the Sector 28 team on the Avron hospital site, Paris XXe.


When will these design methodologies be applied to the entire hospital? To be continued!
