Long-term innovation

In order to anticipate changes in trends, user practices and technologies, Le Lab works to develop the Lagardère group’s own ecosystem that brings together its four divisions, partners and suppliers around a shared priority: innovation.
There are two main aims: to ensure the Group’s long term profitability and to anticipate major changes… and maybe even create them!
To give meaning to its actions and define its fields of innovation, Le Lab works by looking ahead to the short, medium and long term with the Lagardère Innovation Committee and its own Advisory Board.


Lagardère’s innovation ecosystem operates within and outside the Group.
In order to amplify and ensure momentum, Le Lab has four main duties:

1- Identify and lead the community of innovatorswithin the Lagardère group
From the Innovation Awards to seminars for innovators, Le Lab works on a cross-functional basis within the Group to mobilise employees to look at common innovation challenges.

2- Step up the pace of divisions’ projects by meansof innovation
Le Lab helps the Group’s divisions to push forward their innovations. This is crucial in winning new markets and boosting results in the short and medium term.

3- Identify innovative partners
Le Lab introduces the Group’s divisions to potential suppliers and partners and investment opportunities that will help to speed up innovation within their business activities. For example, Le Lab organizes “Lagardère start-up pitches”, meetings within international ecosystems, or even link-ups thanks in particular to partnerships with investment funds Idinvest and Magma Venture Partners.

4- Create innovative start-ups withLagardère’s DNA

Two committees help Le Lab to fulfil its duties:

the Innovation Committee: “innovation” representatives from the four divisions share their successes and priorities in order to help steer Le Lab’s activities in the right direction. Members in 2016 are Pierre Danet (Lagardère Publishing), Frédéric Chevalier (Lagardère Travel Retail), Fabien Sfez (Lagardère Active) and Maxime Lebessou (Lagardère Sports and Entertainment).
the Advisory Board: a committee to reflect on Le Lab’s strategy and Group innovations. It is chaired by Yves Guillemot, CEO of Ubisoft and a member of Lagardère’s Supervisory Board.
