Innovation requires knowledge. It was based on this belief that our organization was originally setup using university and research partnerships. This model gives us an edge.

Innovation lies at the very heart of our DNA


Research and Innovation are combined in a dedicated department to translate its process. The R&D teams conduct research in partnership with laboratories, universities and French Ivy Leagues, and then apply the results of this work to our areas of expertise to drive innovation. Philosophy and sociology work together closely in the field of IT and AI research.

Cutting-edge programs

How can we ensure continuity of technologies for the tools we use? How do we design solutions that interconnect, maintain, evolve and integrate into existing systems by ensuring regulatory compliance and confidentiality? How can we invent new electoral processes with digital technology? How can we provide support to healthcare using artificial intelligence?

These are all questions addressed by the R&D teams, including about thirty active programs with the most prestigious laboratories: Institut national de recherche en sciences du numérique (INRIA), Institut de recherche en informatique de Toulouse (IRIT), among others, universities and French Ivy Leagues at the cutting edge of these topics: Montpellier, Toulouse, Sorbonne, Université technologique de Troyes, École des Mines d’Albi, École normale supérieure, Sciences Po Paris, Télécom Sucom and others.

Berger-Levrault relies on a multidisciplinary scientific council, chaired by the philosopher Milad Doueihi and composed of in-house leaders and actors with internationally recognized work. Researchers, professors, PhD students and undergraduate students meet to discuss the digital transformation and its impacts on society; the results of their work feed into all our research programs.

Multidisciplinary and intercultural research

Our activities bring together international entities involved in research. For example, shared subjects were identified in Spain and an agreement was signed with the University of Barcelona. In Morocco, work on rebuilding the water network is being devised in collaboration with the University of Fez. In Canada, discussions are underway with Toronto researchers on topics related to local activities. The R&D culture at Berger-Levrault has been activated.
