A shared innovation initiative
Legrand participates in collaborative research projects and works within competitiveness clusters or technology transfer centres.
It also cooperates with start-ups and SMEs in various forms (collaborative research or development projects, partnerships, acquisition of stakes), which contributes to leading the sector in particular into innovative areas offering many opportunities, such as the Silver Economy, comfort and well-being, access to electricity, energy efficiency, security in buildings, electric vehicles, connected devices, and digital networks.
The group is also widely involved in the educational world through partnerships with training establishments, regular exchanges with engineering schools, and support for the creation of new specialist courses.
This shared innovation initiative allows it to accelerate its development and support progress across the whole electrical sector.
