GRTgaz Open Innovation Factory

Open Innovation Factory logo

Since 2016, the ambition of Open Innovation at GRTgaz is to provide solutions to the problems of our businesses through collaborative innovation, i.e. by working alongside innovative partners.

In four years, we have signed 19 partnerships with SMEs, VSEs, start-ups, ETIs, laboratories and schools. These winners have thus been able to deploy their solutions within GRTgaz and get closer to other players in the sector, while seeing their visibility increase.
