About social Innovation: I-stay@home discussed with French housing organizations7/24/2013
At the beginning of July, the French members of the consortium gathered for a conference in Paris on the topic: “Innovations: what social utility?” Sociologists, engineers and other housing organizations were also invited to talk about this issue.
Clothilde Botte-Noyan represented Vilogia; Lamiaâe Antar represented Le Foyer Rémois and Nathalie Pilat Detto Braïda represented INTENT Technologies. They were in charge of reminding what technological innovation is today, presenting the I-stay@home project and considering the business model to finance the platform and make it affordable for the most vulnerable end-users.
The other professionals in the housing business were attentive to the speech. The second point about the business model gave birth to a long discussion about the role of the housing organizations and the sale of services to the tenants. Those exchanges were very interesting and revealing. They showed that I-stay@home is an innovative project and most of French housing organizations need more time to take into account these new applications.
