VICAT & HIKOB co-innovate as part of BNP Paribas “Innov&Connect” programme
BNP Paribas is launching “Innov&Connect”, the 1st programme dedicated to innovation for connecting startups and mid- to large-sized companies in France, in order to support their respective growth.
Each start-up will be accompanied and sponsored by a large company, one of BNP Paribas’s clients, to co-innovate on a proof of concept. In the framework of this open innovation initiative HIKOB has been selected to collaborate with the Vicat group. The Vicat Group has close to 7,900 employees working in three core divisions, Cement, Concrete & Aggregates and Other Products & Services, which generated consolidated sales of €2,458 million in 2015.
