Research Innovation & Development

Discovering the Future of Energy

Science and technology are of key importance to sustain TOTAL’s businesses in realizing their strategic objectives of driving profitable and sustainable growth, developing competitive top-tier industrial platforms, responding to customer needs by providing innovative and energy efficient solutions and securing the energy future by focusing on solar energy and biomass.

Research and development (R&D) contributes to this by providing focused and efficient improvements on existing processes, products and technologies as well as by identifying, assessing, developing and implementing new fields of science and technology.

Therefore, R&D operates according to state of the art processes covering intelligence for external developments, designing a portfolio of programs in response to short, medium and long term needs of the businesses, managing projects and studies by stage gate from laboratory scale to pilot scale and accompanying proper implementation of results and knowhow.

Striving for understanding phenomena at work, maintaining and developing existing and new competencies and fostering innovation as a source for competitive differentiation are the underlying drivers for R&D to accomplish its mission.

R&D puts open innovation to practice and develops and maintains collaborations with external partners to enforce fundamental understanding, appeal on new or complementary competencies and explore new areas in science and technology.

Finally R&D protects intellectual property rights on results and know-how through the construction and maintenance of a balanced patent portfolio.
