Introduction

From R&D and Innovation ...
... to Technology Transfer and Business Development

Welcome to our online presentation of Atos Research & Innovation (ARI). We hope that you will enjoy your navigation across the different sections of our site!

You will find a description of our current activities, including a link to all ongoing projects, in the 'Sectors' and 'Labs'. If you wish to know more about past activities, you may visit the 'Print Editions' section within the 'About' menu.

Our mission is to investigate emerging technologies and anticipate market demand with innovative solutions. However, logically, one of the main challenges faced by our group is to reduce the gap between research, innovation and the market. Due to the progress made in approaching different teams within Atos, as well as directly with potential customers, ARI is able to transform acquired knowledge and developed solutions into real business opportunities.

The 'Strategic Projects' section is the place to go for an overview of projects that have strong chances to become part of the offering to the market due to their business value and expected impact on society.

ARI expertise and innovation focus is being recognized as a valuable source of business. A good example is the delivery of Innovation and Ideas Generation workshops based on a methodology developed within a R&D project. Having brought successful results to the company, ARI runs those workshops regularly in Atos and they are offered as an added value service to Atos customers.

Thanks to ARI, Atos is a full member of the Big Data Value Association BDVA, the Alliance for Internet of Things Innovation AIOTI and the 5G Infrastructure Association. Atos Spain is a core partner of EIT Health and EIT Digital. Atos is also a platinum member of the FIWARE Foundation with the support of ARI and due to our active participation in the whole FIWARE initiative. ARI experts sit on the governing boards of all those associations (see more here).

In 2017, Atos Spain became member of the European Factories of the Future Association EFFRA. This Public Private Partnership (PPP) coordinates the Factories of the Future (FoF) topics in H2020. Our expectation with this membership is to position Atos Spain as a reference in the R&D Manufacturing Domain. Additionally, Atos has been particularly active in two working groups (Digital Platforms and Digital Innovation Hubs) instruments to the Strategy for Digitizing European Industry (DEI).

Finally, the number and diversity of projects described in this report show the intensive activity of our group. The latest EU H2020 statistics continue to rank Atos Spain as the first Digital Services company at European level with most participation in projects. This excellent position in the EU Research and Innovation arena increases the visibility, not only of ARI and Atos Spain, but also of Atos as a global company.
