Our research project focuses on the relationship between innovation and business performance in France. We will focus on various sub-themes on different levels of analysis: individual (profile, motivations, corporate social performance (CSP), etc.), organizational (use of digital technology, size, etc.) and environmental (public aid, partnerships, etc.). The aim is to contribute towards a better understanding of innovation by different types of entrepreneurs and to a better allocation of resources intended to promote business creation and innovation. The expected results should enable us to identify the specific characteristics of companies created to achieve the targeted performance levels (growth, stable job creation, etc.) and to make recommendations for supporting entrepreneurs. This is why we would like to have access to SINE (new business information system) surveys. These data should enable us to incorporate the temporal dimension.
