Air Liquide's Innovation Campuses are strategically located in France, Germany, China, Japan and the United States.
These Innovation Campuses are places to connect, collaborate, experiment and co-create. They may host an R&D Center, a startups accelerator, academic partners or customers.
R&D teams are based on 3 dimensions:
R&D industrial partners
To face energy and environmental issues and the acceleration of the digital revolution in hospital and home healthcare, our Innovation Campuses provide solutions to address the society's future challenges. For this purpose, we develop collaborations with customers, technology institutes and internationally renowned universities.
Air Liquide aims to help researchers around the world in their research and develop solutions that will offer sustainable technologies. That's why we launched the second edition of the Scientific Challenge, the #2018AirLiquideScientificChallenge, which aims to develop our knowledge through diversified profiles by giving them the means to create new production processes and applications based on Essential Small Molecules.
Molecules have been at the heart of Air Liquide's activities since its creation. Today, the Innovation campuses are actively working to enrich our knowledge of molecules and encourage us to explore new horizons and better serve society.
Our 18 essential molecules are: oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2), hydrogen (H2), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), methane (CH4), argon (Ar), xenon (Xe), krypton (Kr), neon (Ne), helium (He), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), acetylene (C2H2), ozone (O3), water (H2O), silane (SiH4).
Moreover, Air Liquide has centers of expertise which develop, adapt to the customers' needs and industrialize innovations from the Group: the ALTEC Networks, the Gas Packaging Center, the Cryogenic Technology Center, and centers of expertise specializing in Healthcare, specialty ingredients and advanced electronics materials.
