Open Innovation Approach
To remain at the forefront in producing and proposing tomorrow’s products and services and to broaden its opportunities, the PSA Group has embarked on an Open Innovation approach that aims at helping the Group to take three key success factors into account:
have access to the best knowledge (scientific, technological, use, etc.)
contribute to balancing the economic equation of R&D by sharing costs and risks with its partners or by enhancing the value of its expertise and technologies outside the company
increase the Group’s agility and market a greater number of innovative solutions.
This strategy of openness aims at building and managing relationships driven by shared value creation with stakeholders from four ecosystems:
Academic: be at the cutting edge of scientific knowledge and quickly detect new opportunities thanks to the actions of the StelLab
Institutions: develop a network of innovative partners in automotive and non-automotive industry through competitiveness clusters, etc.
Companies: work better with SMEs, VSEs and start-ups in order to increase the Group’s agility and to give it a head start
People: make people, customers or future customers an even more vital component of innovation processes.
The R&D collaboration with multiple partners and the participative innovation are the two pillars of the Open Innovation approach that allows the Group to increase its innovative capability.Corporate website
