La R&D et l'innovation au service

Exploring, inspiring: triggering transformation

Our sustained R&D activity gives us very precise knowledge on the trends and challenges they face. But our mission goes further: to inspire our clients to undertake profound transformation.

Our goal is to support our teams and clients in their future businesses and roles.

R&D and Innovation according to Scalian

Our approach

We aim to anticipate and tackle our clients’ future challenges. The collective dimension is therefore essential, and we follow a co-innovation approach. We set up joint innovation and/or R&D laboratories: “incubators” where resources are made available on both sides (doctors, engineers, data, collaborative platform, etc.).

Our clients also seek our support for their projects by subcontracting their R&D to us. As Scalian has been approved for research and innovation tax credits (CIR and CII) by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, our clients can also benefit and reduce the financial impact of their own R&D or innovation activities.

Our employees can develop their careers through the R&D structure of the Scalian Innovation Lab. Completing a state-of-the-art review, contributing directly to studies or conducting an experiment as part of a client assignment are all ways of maintaining cutting-edge knowledge and ensuring that our employees assimilate new digital, organisational and methodological drivers.

Research themes

Our research topics correspond to our clients’ business lines and concern the following areas:

  • Agility and resilience:
    recommend a global management approach, anticipating events and increasing the company’s resilience.
  • Enhanced performance:
    increase decision-making, automate low-value-added tasks and change the way we work together in order to improve effectiveness and efficiency.
  • Sustainable and societal innovation:
    set in motion and optimise the energy transition, join in the circular economy, set yourselves apart through end-to-end eco-design approaches.
  • Effectiveness and responsiveness in crisis management:
    anticipate and prevent threats and risks, through a global approach combining business continuity and decision-making in emergency situations, in order to shorten the time needed to return to a nominal situation.
  • Human-Environment interfaces:
    optimise human activities in an environmentally constrained context.
  • Adaptability and optimisation of health systems:
    customise and target digital solutions.
  • Innovative mobility:
    new practices based on mobility of goods and people, including its possible reduction.
  • Safety and security:
    dependability and security of digital systems; consideration of human factors.
