Thales listed in Clarivate and Nature Top 100 rankings for innovation and scientific achievement

Published: February 2018

In 2017, Thales was once again included in the Top 100 Global Innovators ranking compiled by Clarivate Analytics, an information science and intellectual property consultancy, with the Group standing out for the volume, success and influence of its patents. This achievement underlines Thales’s commitment to innovating, protecting its ideas and bringing its inventions to market. Thales has been included in this prestigious ranking five times since 2011, illustrating the success of the Group’s consistent, long-term intellectual property management strategy.

Also in 2017, Thales was included for the first time in the Top 100 ranking of leading corporate institutions for high-quality science compiled by the distinguished academic journal Nature. Thales is ranked 27th worldwide and 2nd in France. Nature also publishes a Top 100 ranking of corporate-academic collaborations. Thales features twice in this ranking, at 7th place for its collaboration with University of Paris Sud (UPSud) in France and at 50th place for its partnership with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.

These top international rankings reflect Thales’s recent work on the world’s first artificial nano-neuron, developed by Julie Grollier and her team of researchers at the Thales / CNRS Joint Physics Unit, working with UPSud. They also recognise the achievements of the CINTRA joint international research unit in Singapore, which brings together teams from France’s national research institute CNRS, Thales and NTU. This partnership was established in 2009 and renewed for a further five years in January at a ceremony attended by Frédérique Vidal, French minister for higher education, research and innovation.

The latest rankings are a mark of global recognition of Thales’s research and innovation potential. They offer a tangible endorsement of the Group’s consistent effort to advance research and innovation, in particular through collaboration between its research centres around the world and academic partners, SMEs, start-ups and customers.
