Our passion, innovation

Our innovation strategy

Our vision

Building on our base of strong industrial expertise, innovation is central to AKKA and the way we add value to the varied sectors in which we operate. Our values are reflected particularly in the smart mobility products and services where AKKA already has a strong presence, in our technology demonstrators where we engage people in the process of integrating smart technologies and new digital tools.

What we do

We help customers seize business opportunities by accelerating innovation. We integrate advanced technologies into customer used cases, using a design thinking approach to create optimal user experience. Particular attention is being dedicated to two specific areas:

The future of Mobility: products, services, usages of mobility in the future environment, for people and goods.

Engineering and process of the future: identifying and developing tools enabled by new technologies that will be an aid in designing, testing, industrializing and manufacturing solutions.
