The Club de Paris des Directeurs de l'Innovation was created during the first National Meeting of Innovation Directors in 2008, with the aim of being a meeting place for Innovation Directors, allowing them to benefit from the feedback of their peers as well as a permanent contact with best practices, studies and international analyses in innovation.
The Club brings together the innovation departments of some fifty European and international companies, most often world leaders, as well as public organizations and research centres. The objective is to maintain them at the best state of the art in innovation, through various research, study and analysis formats, exchanges, sharing of experiences and discoveries. 
The values shared by the members of the Paris Club of Innovation Directors are:
- Humanism, innovation and progress
- Leadership, initiative and ambition
- Value creation
- Culture of the best state of the art
- Culture of the trade
- Overall vision
- Multicultural openness
- Discovery, exchange, sharing
Every year the club organizes the International Meeting of Innovation Directors, in Paris, to meet with the innovation managers of large companies and international organizations recognized for their dynamism in the field of innovation.
