A culture of partnering with academic research

Co-developing products and solutions is an integral part of the Saint-Gobain group’s approach to innovation.

Dedicated to industrial research, Saint-Gobain Recherche cultivates strong links with the academic world.

The centre shares research programs with a large number of academic research laboratories. At the same time, we regularly work with consultants from outside the Group to leverage their cutting-edge expertise.

« There’s a very strong will in SGR to defend innovation. I proposed a study on using the new properties of thin film materials by moving away from the purely optical dimension. I got back in touch with lab where I did my thesis and proposed to make a few demo samples and we were able to characterize some relatively original properties. »
