European research and innovation (R&I) projects are an excellent framework for GFT to integrate innovation management . We do this by using internal and external resources through projects and partnerships. GFT’s goal within European R&I projects is to create new value through innovation, from high-impact ideas to develop a sellable (new or improved) product or service based on new technologies and approaches.
Taking into account the GFT corporate strategy and marketing, the R&I team is working on project proposals, identifying potential partners and funding opportunities. GFT often play the role of project coordinator in large European consortia, managing the whole life cycle of R&I projects as well as the official relationship with European Commission.
The key thrusts of GFT’s innovation strategy within R&I projects are
- big data, analytics and AI;
- blockchain and cybersecurity;
- technologies related to the internet of things;
- models and management systems for smart cities.
