Intellectual Capital World Conference, May 2013

In May 2013, Raphaële Bidault-Waddington presented her Paris Galaxies experimental research project at the “Intellectual Capital for Communities in the Knowledge Economy” world conference, organized by the Immaterial Economy European Chair, Paris South University and the World Bank Institute.

Conference program:


Slated in the “Creative Region, Cities and Territories” session, the presentation highlighted the experimental, artistic framework of Paris Galaxies, including how the conceptual model allowed for the reporting of a variety of immaterial capitals in the Paris metropolis: the region’s governance, its networks and creative potentials, as well as its cognitive, imaginary and digital assets.


This presentation introduced on an artistic approach of cities and organizations in an economics conference, and mirrored the presentation given at the “Scaling Up,” an art and design symposium addressing economy, organized by the Paris College of Art and Paris I Pantheon Sorbonne University during the Designers’ Days 2012.
