R&D and Innovation Policy
In the realm of its project assignments, internal programmes and collaborative projects, Artelia deploys a considerable effort to research and innovation.
The expenditure on R&D exceeds 3% of the group’s total fees.
This sustained investment enables us to continuously improve the efficiency of our methods and the quality of the solutions we offer our clients, while optimising the cost of our services.
A determined policy
800 Artelia engineers and technicians were involved in research in 2015.
Over 300 of our engineering, project management and consultancy assignments involved research activity.
Nearly 30 strategic research projects are currently being self-financed by the group.
In 2015, Artelia coordinates or takes part in 10 collaborative research projects both in France (for the French National Research Agency, regional research clusters, French ministries, etc.) and in the context of the EU Framework Programme in partnership with public organisations, construction companies, industrial firms, and local and regional authorities.
Artelia’s engineers frequently take part in research governance bodies and are called on to coordinate and assess research programmes and projects in their sectors.
Artelia employees authored or co-authored 32 scientific and technical publications during 2015.
Several of our colleagues provide training in their technical speciality at universities and engineering schools.
Our R&D-Innovation Committee coordinates and structures the group’s research effort, defines the strategic priorities, and communicates progress made to our clients, partners and staff members.
