Science invites     itself to             your home   



On Thursday, June 20th, Saint-Gobain received the "Top 100 Global Innovators 2019" award for the eighth consecutive year at the International Paris Air Show. 

This published ranking is based on four patent-related metrics: the total number of patents, the number of patents granted as a ratio of patents filed, the global scope of the portfolio of patents, and the impact of patents measured by the number of references. 

R&D at Saint-Gobain is supported by 3,700 employees, a global network of eight cross-business research centers and numerous dedicated R&D units for a total investment of €446 million in 2017. With close to 900 R&D projects in progress, Saint-Gobain has a pool of innovations that allows it to launch numerous new products every year. One out of four products sold today by the Group did not exist five years ago. In total, approximately 400 patents are developed each year by the Group, thus reinforcing its N° 1 position in the markets in which it operates.
