« We’ve launched “The Race” with Alcimed, an initiative helping us pivoting our core business. With The Race we are building strong differentiation through innovations going beyond technology. For several months, we embark and support key Product Lines to shake beliefs and demonstrate our capacity to innovate. Feedbacks show impressive change of mindsets and great business impacts!
The Race is now a community inspiring action in all our Business Units. This initiative was welcomed by both teams and management members. »

« We worked with Alcimed on various emerging technology themes. Alcimed enabled us to provide internal experts with a complementary watch and state of the art, an analysis of complex ecosystems, sources of inspiration from different industries, as well as the identification of the most promising partners and/or technologies. This approach improves the understanding of the dynamics of research ecosystems and guides internal concepts and investments. »
