Safran to Open New Research and Technology Centre

21 January 2014

The new centre, dubbed Paris-Saclay, is located south of Paris, France and Safran states it will enable increased synergies with Saclay.

According to Safran, the new Paris-Saclay facility will eventually count some 1,500 employees, including 300 scientists and technologists, along with engineers and technicians from other Safran entities currently located in the greater Paris area. The company states the centre is also designed to eventually welcome outside research teams working on subjects that complement Safran’s areas of industrial research, to form a top-tier research complex.

Through this new Research and Technology centre, Safran claims it will be able to accelerate technological breakthroughs in aerospace, digital technology, materials, processes and sensors.

"With this new centre, Safran takes its Research and Technology activities to a whole new plane, by fostering technological synergies between our different companies," said Jean-Paul Herteman, Chairman and CEO of Safran. "We will be boosting our investments in key disciplines for our aerospace, defence and security businesses by a full 25%."
