- Contribution from Geneviève BOUCHE - futurist in economics of innovation
Involved in the worldwide adventure of digital technology since the end of the 1970s, Geneviève Bouché studies its impacts on social and economic life.
With a doctorate in organisational science (specialising in telecoms, economics and future studies), she was in charge of “special projects” for the period after the “plan calcul” at France Télécom. With her teams, she laid the foundations of what became Internet’s versions 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, but also cryptocurrencies, 3D and shape recognition and connected devices. Following the privatisation of France Télécom she founded her own innovation management consultancy which advises governments, firms and investors in the arrival of the digital era.
From the 2000s onwards, in addition to her mentoring and consulting activities, she contributed to think tanks and associations in which a future studies approach helps to provide depth to the issues dealt with (Orée, the institute for the circular economy, MFRB, FING – “additional currencies” workstream). In 2016, within the framework of the Société Française de Prospective she founded a working group entitled “Villages of the future” whose purpose is to investigate the effects of urban decay which is in evidence in certain countries including France.
“Our vision of the world is changing and we are moving towards new forms of prosperity. Our relationship with others and with nature is reshaping itself in a view to taking better advantage of the dependencies that connect us.The boundary between common goods and private goods is gently shifting, as is the balance between family life and life in the community. At the same time the trio of robots, circular economy and big data are reshaping the business environment. All of this leads to the repositioning of urban development and infrastructure in the medium term.”
