Our innovation ecosystem supports our transformation strategy
Through industrial and technological partnerships with global leaders and strategic acquisitions we aim to accelerate the integration of new competences and time to market. As well as partnerships with companies such as Mahle, Aptoide, and ZF to advance the Cockpit of the Future or Michelin for Sustainable Mobility, we also engage with industry leaders such as Schneider Electric and Accenture to drive our transformation initiatives.
In order to support a culture of innovation and provide customers with cutting-edge mobility solutions, our proactive patent strategy protects and promotes a valuable portfolio of nearly 10,000 patents. In 2019 we filed a record 608 patents, a 50% increase on the previous year.
