Open Innovation, the unique feature of the website www.cosmetic-360.com

Publié le : 21-04-2015

There was previously no international trade fair truly dedicated to innovation in the perfumery and cosmetics sector, but there will be one in Paris from next autumn: COSMETIC 360 will be held on 15 and 16 October 2015 in the Carrousel du Louvre.


Organised by the Cosmetic Valley competitiveness cluster, Cosmetic 360 is supported by the Ministry of Industry, the Banque Publique d’Investissement (BPIFrance) [Public Investment Bank], theFédération des Entreprises de la Beauté (FEBEA) [Federation of Beauty Companies], the Société Française de cosmétologie (SFC) [French Cosmetics Society] and the Société Française des Parfumeurs (SFP) [Society of French Perfumers].


COSMETIC 360 is positioned as “the international trade fair for innovation”, with turnkey solutions in various areas of the industry, including ingredients and actives, formulation, design, packaging, logistics, testing and measurement, supply chain, services, marketing and distribution.


Its unique feature is Open Innovation, which offers the opportunity to look for skills outside the company in order to develop innovative products or services. Open Innovation is a way of stimulating innovation, saving time and reducing the risks associated with funding R&D.

The novel feature of Cosmetic 360 is an innovative system for making contacts, opening up a wide range of opportunity for innovative project leaders (start-ups, laboratories, SMEs and micro-enterprises, Groups, etc.) and giving them the chance to present their innovations via an online form to the Research and Innovation teams of the big names of Cosmetic Valley.


The interest is twofold: principals can set aside two days for meetings with project leaders, and project leaders can have meetings with several principals if their project grabs their attention. The website www.cosmetic360.com operates this innovative system for bringing people together for select, quality meetings.   


How to register:

Register online (free for innovative project leaders) to obtain a visitor’s badge for 15 and 16 October and to gain admission to the Visitor Area.

Register in the “Open Innovation Application” section, where you will find a project submission form which will register you to submit a request to the big names of the cosmetic and perfumery sector.


Sequence of events:

  • Up to 31 August 2015: submission of applications (which can be amended right up to this date)
  • September 2015: selection, request and acceptance of appointments with innovative project leaders.
  • 15 and 16 October: appointments in dedicated areas at the Cosmetic 360 trade fair.
