Innovation, quality, security and constant evolution are the cornerstones of our success. Nowadays, innovation increasingly occurs through creative exchange with external consultants in the framework of open innovation, rather than in in-house research and development departments. With our innovation platform, we are taking a big step in this direction by creating a space for collaborative exchange, community and creativity.

Great things can happen when people with different perspectives come together, come up with new solutions and develop them as a team. Our innovation platform gives you the opportunity to test your ideas by entering our competitions, the first of which is about future trends. Through this we aim to get to know creative people who are interested in contributing their skills, participating in interesting projects, meeting like-minded people and forming part of our innovation community.


With an eye to the future, we are launching a competition for creative minds to come up with innovative ideas for new business areas beyond our usual sphere of activity.

Join in, submit an idea and win great prizes!
