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.


The royalties from a dozen patents, licences and the associated trademarks relating to key technologies are reinvested in the group’s research efforts.


Our testing laboratories give us a unique standing in the water, environment and infrastructure sectors.

 

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.
