ARI 3C's

We believe that successful and sustainable companies are those with the capacity to adapt to changes, accept that there are new ways of doing things and willing to mobilize all internal and external resources to generate more value.

Based on its day-to-day activity, Atos Research & Innovation team (ARI) has developed efficient working processes, methodologies, knowledge and collaborative tools that can benefit our customers.

In addition to assistance to the preparation and development of research and innovation projects, our team can provide services related to the innovation process, such as emerging technologies watch, ideas generation and value proposition workshops (3C's), innovation management and capacity building, etc. All those activities are supported by state-of-the-art methodologies and IT tools to offer efficient and skillful support.

RDI support services

From RDI to market

From innovation strategy to project management, from ideas generation to identification of funding, from opportunities to tangible outcomes, our extensive experience enables us to provide reliable Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) support and consulting services.

We cover the whole innovation cycle, including identification of funding sources and programs, proposals preparation, and establishment of multidisciplinary consortia, tapping into our large base of reliable partners. Support services also include contract negotiation, as well as the following administrative / financial management and technical coordination of funded projects.

Challenges · Creativity · Co-work


People are at the center of our approach. The change of mindset in the whole organization enabling the adoption of technologies is more important than technology itself. New ways of collaborating become crucial, as teams are expected to be more efficient and successful. 

So, ARI 3C’s offering (Challenges, Creativity and Co-work) focuses on the human side of digital transformation. We help organizations address the challenge of moving to an innovation mindset and a culture of empowerment.

We help people identifying barriers and opportunities based on real needs and encourage teams to solve problems with a new mindset. We have designed different hands-on sessions where participants learn by doing and, with the support of our largely experienced team, put into practice innovation and creativity techniques.

To address the various needs of our clients, we offer training and capacity building in different areas and with different learning objectives:

  1. Insights into new emerging technologies, use cases and business potential by experts involved in the latest developments and in multi-disciplinary projects.
  2. Learning about the different existing and applied methodologies for agile development and proven innovation management in multiple projects and diverse business contexts.
