« Seed’Innov » Eiffage fund gives financial support to the first two internal innovations

The Transversal Innovation Committee, chaired by Benoit de Ruffray, finances by 35 % the total cost of the projects. This financial system support is one of the measures decided by the Strategic Plan of Transversal Innovation Group.

The Seed’Innov fund targets to support the innovation process within the Group, from the first steps of R&D and experimentation, to the final step of market entry. In this way, the first two application files were selected and will be financed by up to 35 % of the total amount.
 
Here are the two supported innovations :

  • A new patent for a high performance concrete divider for roads, proposed by A.E.R. Subsidiary. The aid granted includes the development, the studies, the crash-tests, up to the market entry.
  • The « connected road factory in real time » : Data revolution in coating production with the monitoring of the functioning in real time, the optimized stock management, the coated quality and its environmental impact and energy efficiency.

 
Four other files from the other branches of the Group are currently under consideration by the Transversal Innovation Comittee.
