Veolia’s Open Innovation initiative aims to accelerate the Group's innovation capacity. It is specifically designed to detect, assess and develop innovative external solutions that will add value to our existing range of services, allow us to create new services or more effectively manage an environmental risk. It complements other innovative approaches..
Since its inception in 2010, the Veolia Innovation Accelerator (VIA) has targeted startups, entrepreneurs and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
It acts as a matchmaker between innovative solution providers and the Veolia ecosystem: researchers, Business Unit managers, experts... in France and internationally.
You can submit your solution on our dedicated web platform and start the matchmaking process in the Group’s areas of expertise.
There are two ways of working with the Veolia Innovation Accelerator:
- Calls for external solutions, a targeted approach responding to already identified needs
- The Open Channel, for submitting innovative solutions at any time.
