Thales has opened an Innovation Hub Singapore, the groups first multidisciplinary innovation centre outside of Europe.

The Thales team will engage customers in user centered innovation, code signing, prototyping and testing new ideas and concepts across domains ranging from defence, maritime security to aerospace, air traffic management and smart cities.

The innovation team has been trained by the Design Thinking and Innovation Academy from the Design Singapore Council in order to apply the concept of Design Thinking innovation, a new, goal-oriented, problem solving approach developed to look at all potential alternatives of a particular design problem.

Thales has world class credentials in research and technology, and invests 20% of its annual turnover in Research & Development. The Singapore team will therefore draw from considerable global support, including access to the internal network of design practitioners, a global group of experts from across all Thales domains, which fosters cross collaboration in order to fine-tune design and innovation.

 The team will be further strengthened by the partnership forged with the Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD), through collaboration and internship agreements.

Jean-Bernard Lvy, Chairman and CEO, Thales, said, Innovation is in our DNA. Thales invests more in research and technology than most other industrial groups and with this inauguration we reaffirm this commitment to innovation. By leveraging the multi-cultural and multidisciplinary Thales teams in Asia and across the world, the entire technology and research portfolio of the group can be accessed by local clients to meet their needs in each of our strategic countries like Singapore.
