Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE
Dassault Systèmes has announced the launch of the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab, its new open innovation laboratory and startup accelerator program dedicated to nurturing and empowering disruptive projects and transforming society.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Lab was launched in parallel with La Fondation Dassault Systèmes, the company’s foundation dedicated to empowering innovative and transformative projects in education, research and scientific knowledge at organisations throughout the European Union. With the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab, Dassault Systèmes will help selected startups that are developing physical products capable of improving life, cities and lifestyles, covering ideation, the Internet of Things and fab labs.
During a one to two year program, selected startups will have access to Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, technical skills and mentoring to create digital experiences to optimise and validate their product and processes. In addition, Dassault Systèmes’ worldwide ecosystem will help accelerate the startups’ product launches and international presence.
“Many promising entrepreneurs are looking at the world with fresh eyes yet are forced to innovate in isolation, without the benefits of a greater network to nurture, challenge, consolidate and validate their ideas,” Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes, explained. “Innovation is at the core of what Dassault Systèmes strives to bring to the world. We believe in the powerful capabilities of our 3DEXPERIENCE platform to help innovators create disruptive experiences that can positively impact society.
"The 3DEXPERIENCE Lab gives greater resonance to our purpose within the collaborative economy by offering new ways of contributing to groundbreaking projects, revealing talents and creating new spaces for interaction, in addition to fostering an open, creative corporate culture.”
