Abstract  This article presents how innovation and Competitive Intelligence must be introduced in France in public research laboratories. The use of indicators without discrimination may lead to a false perception of the research activities on one hand and on the other hand it may move away the laboratories from one of their objective : to use part of their competence and knowledge to participate to the development of the society and to increase the social cohesion. Some examples are given and a solution is proposed to introduce Competitive Intelligence its method and tools in official research laboratories: the “UMSR”. The crucial role of these structures within the universities and the research centers is analyzed in detail. A new concept is then evoked, that of the RSR (Social Research Responsibility), which joined the idea of participation of the entities of research and education in the creation of local and national richnessesKey words: scientific  indicators, UMSR, competitive intelligence, social research responsibility, SRR, society, regional development
