The Innovation Acceleration department: a catalyst for innovation breaks 

The Innovation Acceleration department’s aim is to initiate and support innovation projects at Naval Group, whether in terms of human resources, processes, methods and products. Its activities range from research in breakthrough technologies to building communities of innovators and intrapreneurs, as well as co-innovation federating key players (academic, start-ups, incubators) from all horizons in France and abroad. A department that drives Naval Group into the technologies of the future, contributes to the group's open and collaborative strategy and encourages the diversity and complementarity of profiles, moving away from a strictly technically-centred framework.
