Saint-Gobain hosted 15 start-ups and small and middle-sized companies at Domolab, its innovation center based in Aubervilliers, near Paris, as part of a joint event organized with the European Innovation Council (EIC) and the support of NOVA, Saint-Gobain’s External Ventures team.
Under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 program, the EIC selects start-ups and small and medium-sized companies with high innovation potential in order to boost the quick development of their products, services and technologies.
“At Saint-Gobain, we are convinced that innovation is above all collaborative and open. Within the Group, we are always open to engaging with start-ups, entrepreneurs and universities. We believe that our open innovation approach helps us to collaborate with external players to complement our expertise,” says Tom Kinisky, innovation senior vice president.
