For Olivier Delabroy, VP Digital Transformation at Air Liquide, VivaTech was the best moment to underline that "the next frontier for open innovation is the capacity of large companies to organize their ecosystems".
Air Liquide collaborates with 100 start-up around the world. Many of them are focused on enhancing employees' experience and developing sustainable solutions for the planet. Four of them were exhibiting on our booth at VivaTech.
MyFood develops smart greenhouses to help consumers produce healthy, diverse, and fresh food at home. Air Liquide and MyFood are collaborating on a fertilization process using CO2 to improve the quality and yield of vegetables grown in the greenhouse. The process is smart, connected, and enables the reuse of CO2 from industry.
DietSensor is a nutritional coaching app designed to help consumers eat better by making the right choices from supermarket to plate. The application is specifically intended to support diabetic patients as they deal with their dietary constraints. DietSensor is backed by ALIAD, Air Liquide’s venture capital investment arm.
Immersive Factory develops virtual reality training modules, with new HTC VR headsets (Vive Focus Plus), used to teach Air Liquide employees about safety challenges.
Ramp-up, a Techstars Paris incubated start-up, is developing a chatbot that works using artificial intelligence to support new employees as they settle in to their jobs.
Air Liquide develops solutions that contribute to preserving the planet. At VivaTech, our experts and partners provided some concrete examples. Bertrand Piccard, Founder of the Solar Impulse Foundation, gives an update on the "1,000 solutions for planet" initiative, Philippe Merino talks about the potential of biomethane and Bénédicte Roquette presents the Chronic Care Connect e-health offer.
Furthermore, intrapreneurship at Air Liquide is contributing to the development of innovative solutions. More explanations with Agnès Le Guern, HR Director Innovation.
