Groupe SEB has geared its innovation strategy towards 5 key areas that are in line with changing social trends and current streams of research. These key areas are as follows:  
  • connected universe: communicating devices, human/machine interface, smart systems, 100 % digital solutions, etc.

  • energy and portability: energy savings, innovative batteries (capacity, reliability, miniaturisation, improved charge/discharge cycle management), etc.

  • ageing of population: product ergonomics, specific needs, etc.

  • preservation of beauty, health and well-being: nutrition, health monitoring, body care, etc.

  • environmental responsibility and sustainable development: reduction of energy consumption, acoustic performance (vacuum cleaners, food processers, etc.), recyclability, new materials, etc.

If you have a tangible idea or technology, an innovation or an invention related to one of these fields, do not hesitate to submit it to us. We are interested in anything relating to cookware products or small electrical home appliances, except for manufacturing methods and packaging.

Above those general areas, we especially invite you  to read through the challenges below which reflect the specific needs identified by our innovation teams.
