Our international partnerships

Our innovation policy calls on a network of prestigious external partners from different backgrounds.

Enhancing innovation with the help of our partners

In an ever-changing world, innovation is essential and the  source of a competitive advantage. We’re convinced innovation must be based on a network of external partnerships with different players. These partnerships serve to multiply our company’s Research and Development efforts, while benefiting from cooperation with some of the best research teams in the world. We intend to facilitate the sharing of results and exchanges between researchers and experts and to provide innovative offers and services to meet the future needs of our customers.
