ESADECREAPOLIS, an international centre for Open and Cross Innovation set up by ESADE Business School and other partners, was inaugurated this afternoon by the Spanish Minister of Science and Innovation, and the Catalan Counsellor for Innovation, University and Enterprise. The innovation park is the first of its kind to be created by an international business school and already houses over 50 companies, including BBVA, Roca, Laboratorios Esteve and FlowLab, all of whom share the common objective of getting results out of Open and Cross innovation. This innovation process is open to its environment, involves interaction with very different
companies and considers elements beyond the company itself, such as suppliers, clients or the community. Belonging to a wide range of sectors and of very different sizes, the representatives from the ESADECREAPOLIS resident companies get together for regular guided innovation and best
practice sessions, round tables, and other activities. The crossover of ideas and sharing of experience in such sessions generates the kind of more disruptive, creative ideas, necessary for business development in today’s changeable global environment. Companies housed in ESADECREAPOLIS’ Googlesque building not only attend specific workshops, but also network informally thanks to the building’s design features specifically thought out to promote socialization and knowledge exchange between the different companies. The state-of-the-art building includes many different environments intended to assist in the creative process such as Coffee Brain Corners, Open & Cross Innovation rooms, Focus Group rooms, open

balconies and communal gardens and play areas. The project also hopes to leverage the synergies between the business school and ESADECREAPOLIS‘ innovative residents. The purpose-built 20,000m2 park is strategically located on ESADE’s new San Cugat campus allowing residents easy access to ESADE’s innovation experts, research centres and Executive Education programmes. Similarly, ESADE students and professors will benefit from having the opportunity to watch innovation at work close at hand.
