Open innovation

Naval Group forges ties with internal and external ecosystems both in France and internationally to meet the existing and emerging demands of the market.

Naval Group is currently engaged in around a hundred innovation projects developed in partnership with start-ups, research institutes and manufacturers.

On a European scale, Naval Group contributes most notably to several structuring projects in the fields of underwater warfare, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity as part of the European Defence Fund.


Our international partnerships

Our innovation strategy is deployed internationally, namely in Belgium, Singapore and in Australia where Naval Group has established Centres of Operational Excellence (CoE) to approach local ecosystems and forge new partnerships.


Accelerating innovation

We at Naval Group constantly endeavour to accelerate innovation and anticipate future needs, conceiving breakthrough innovations thanks to our dedicated lab, the Naval Innovation Hub (NIH).
We also apply iterative and agile innovation methods and favour the rapid experimentation of our onboard solutions.

Our network of Open Labs and specialised laboratories also contribute to promulgating a culture of experimentation thanks to rapid and frugal prototyping of innovative solutions.
We also encourage intrapreneurship to cultivate a spirit of initiative and creativity within the group, as well as to set out and conquer new horizons.
