Global leadership through innovation
Being a leader means knowing how to innovate. Our forward-looking R&D team knows how to push our boundaries to find ways to make next-generation cables that are lighter, tougher, and greener.
We use our market leadership, tap our vast research knowledge and experience, and leverage our extensive network of partners and universities to deliver energy and telecommunication innovations that make a difference to our customers’ bottom lines.
Working towards a cleaner and safer future
The projects we are working on today in our 25 Research and Development (R&D) centers worldwide will help make energy and information delivery safer, cheaper, and cleaner tomorrow for our direct customers and individuals and communities everywhere they reach.
Furthermore, our continual drive to improve sustainability means we’re working towards a better world for all. So investing time and resources in R&D is a top priority. We nurture our skilled experts and professionals through partnerships with 50 universities worldwide to find solutions that keep us in the lead and deliver value for our customers.
Focusing on high technology projects
Our engineers are passionate about what they do: developing a more sustainable material, adding more transmission capacity to a cable, or improving a production process in one of our 112 plants.
The R&D team has a patent portfolio of 5,627 key innovations, representing technological advantages and having a lower environmental impact than the solutions they replaced.
Investing in innovation
Prysmian invested approximately 105 million Euros in 2018 in Research, Development and Innovation, confirming its steadfast commitment to and focus on sustainable long-term growth. The company's investments include developing new products and solutions using fiber-sensing electronics, sensors, artificial intelligence, and robotics.
The merger between Prysmian and General Cable has created an R&D powerhouse. We are investing in digital tools that enable efficient collaboration across our worldwide R&D community giving it ready electronic access to critical know-how, be it on our materials, designs, or through technical experts.
We aim to be the most efficient in 'connecting the dots' to serve our customers and protect the environment.
