To strengthen and speed up innovation thanks to our partners
In an ever-changing world, innovation is a necessity and a source of competitiveness. SUEZ is convinced that its innovation must be based on a network of external partnerships with different players.
These partnerships serve to multiply the Group's Research and Development efforts, while benefiting from cooperation with some of the best research teams in the world.
The Group intends, on the one hand, to facilitate the sharing of results and exchanges between researchers and experts and, on the other, to provide innovative offers and services to meet the future needs of its customers.
