Through its multidisciplinary skill-set, its local roots and partnerships with socioeconomic players, Cerema is a key partner in developing, testing, and supporting innovation on a regional level. To provide this service, Cerema draws on:
Multidisciplinary skills: always one of our establishment’s specialisms. These multidisciplinary skills enable us to gain input from professionals with different ways of seeing the world (engineers, developers, sociologists, geographers…)
A partnership culture: turning new research or a new idea into a product, process, or service that finds its market requires input from multiple stakeholders: It mobilises businesses, regional institutions, and research centres.
While all of Cerema’s agents are in some way involved in innovation, it is the core business of several hundred agents and experts.
