Innovation, whether technical or methodological, gives a powerful competitive edge to engineering companies and their partners all over the world. It is one of the most striking proofs of the creativity within the sector, which on a daily basis sees the introduction of new tools, new methods and new approaches to its on-going projects.
As of 2006, thirty research projects co-financed by Egis have been undertaken by subsidiaries .
These in-house R&D projects have contributed to consolidating the attractiveness of our offers, improving our productivity and developing new markets like Rail, Energy, adapting to Climate Change, and Sustainable Development.
Every 3 years since 1999, Egis has organised an Innovation Competition that is open to all its employees.
This event testifies to the permanent spirit of innovation inside Egis and its deliberate policy of recognising achievements and the employees behind them.
The most recent Innovation Competition was a great success: 130 innovating candidates, 13 participating subsidiaries, including one international subsidiary. Twenty-three innovations won prizes, 7 at an international level. The next competition is scheduled for 2013.
