25 février 2015 : Audition d’Idriss ABERKANE, professeur à Centrale-Supélec, chercheur à Polytechnique, chercheur affilié à Stanford et Ambassadeur de l’Unitwin/unesco pour la section “Systèmes Complexes”, auditionné par la Section de l’environnement du CESE dans le cadre de la saisine : “Le biomimétisme : s’inspirer de la nature pour innover durablement”.

Successful innovation is not a single breakthrough. It is not a sprint. It is not an event for the solo runner. Successful innovation is a team sport, it’s a relay race. It requires one team for the breakthrough and another team to get the breakthrough accepted and adopted. And this takes the long-term steady courage of the day-in day-out struggle to educate, to persuade and to win acceptance. And that is the light that I want to shine on health and medicine today.”

In this talk, Dr. Alexandre Marchac shows how innovations in plastic and reconstructive surgery can make a difference in people’s life.
