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 'Key Projects' section is the place to go for an overview or our current strategic activities, 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, those workshops are now being promoted internally at global level and 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 one of the core partners of the Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) for EIT Health, which involves a consortium of 144 European companies, research institutes and universities. The Spanish node is co-led by Atos.

And more recently, Atos has become a platinum member of the FIWARE Foundation with the support of ARI and due to our active participation in the whole FIWARE initiative. Our team has several positions within the foundation's governance.

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.
