Our research budget reached €794 million in 2015, which represents 3.1% of turnover.

In the last 10 years, our Research budget has increased more rapidly than the Group's sales.

More than 490 patents were registered in 2015. Our workforce consists of 3800 employees, representing about sixty nationalities and thirty different scientific backgrounds (chemistry, physics, biology, dermatology, optics, rheology, IT, statistics, analysis, etc.).
