Research on innovation has become a hot topic over the past years. This topic is now multiform and has
spread amongst most of the fields in social sciences. Numerous issues about innovation are studied with
various focus as such as individuals, organizations, economic systems or political systems. The 3rd Abbé
Grégoire Innovation Days aims to highlight the latest researches on innovation. With this event, we intend to contribute to the field and to develop the research community around innovation. Placing this  conference under the patronage of the Abbé Grégoire who founded the Cnam in 1794 we wish to humbly contribute the work done on innovation by the Cnam for more than 200 years.
