Wave around the world 

A project conceived and produced by BNP Paribas

Wave+

Learn about other collective ingenuity initiatives all over the world

How are they selected?

The selection of the WAVE+ projects

WAVE+ describes other projects that are based on collective ingenuity. These other projects are selected in the country where the exhibition is held.

These initiatives are all related to one of the five currents of collective ingenuity. They were selected in consultation with experts in these different currents. To ensure objectivity, these projects were selected by our experts based on how interesting they were, and not on the commercial relationship that BNP Paribas has or does not have with the project owners.

The WAVE+ section also welcomes proposals that are sent to us by project owners. If you’ve created a collective ingenuity project and you’d like to submit it to us, please contact us: plusdewave@gmail.com.
