Rabot Dutilleul is a partner in “Le Village by CA”, an incubator network that gives innovative start-ups opportunities to speed up their development by benefiting from support provided by experts and the experience of partners. In this framework, the Rabot-Dutilleul Group contributes to the development and promotion of such villages in Lille and Reims and helps to generate synergies between the start-ups and various regional and national economic stakeholders.

The Territorial Innovation Accelerator (TIA) was initiated in 2013 by the Rabot Dutilleul, Veolia and Orange companies in the Lille metropolitan area and then in Seine-Saint-Denis near Paris (93). Its objectives are to support the development of start-ups and to detect innovative techniques. Calls for projects are issued regularly in different sectors (construction, transport, healthcare, environmental protection, etc.). This initiative, which is supported by the NFID (North of France Innovation & Development), has prompted the Rabot Dutilleul group to form partnerships with several promising enterprises.

Rabot Dutilleul partners the ADICODE® innovation and co-design workshops, an ambitious scheme to drive innovation and training among engineering students and businesses. This scheme relies on mobilising the combined cross-disciplinary expertise available within the HEI-ISA-ISEN Group of schools. It aims to create an ecosystem that fosters innovation, based on the principle of forming, for long periods, teams of students and teacher-researchers from a variety of disciplines. These teams get involved in innovation projects linked to real-life business issues.
