Innovation Awards

Promoting digital technologies for a more inclusive world

At Sopra Steria, we are convinced that the collective is a strength and that digital technology is a major source of innovation at the service of inclusion. This is why we propose challenges to our employees that aim to develop innovative solutions to build a positive future.

 

Innovation Awards, let's build creative and innovative technological solutions that respond to business and societal challenges

Organized every two years, the Innovations Awards allow all Sopra Steria’s employees to build creative and innovative technological solutions that respond to business and societal challenges.

For the latest edition, the awards competition considered more than 352 projects, 16 of which were shortlisted. A quarter of these shortlisted projects were designed to help disabled people, and 3 of the winning projects focused on handicap-related issues. More than ever, the Innovations Awards reflect Sopra Steria's commitment to digital technology in the service of a more inclusive society.

"Leveraging digital technology to build a positive future and to improve the inclusion of disabled people in society is one of Sopra Steria’s main commitments. It is a strong part of our DNA, and highlighting these innovations is our role. It is also our duty to provide the resources they need to make their vision a reality. This is why the Group is co-financing the development of these projects through its Mission Inclusivity initiative this year."

Consuelo Bénicourt, director of social responsibility at Sopra Steria

Luxor

Joint 2nd prize

France

Distinguishing the true from the false concerning the origin of a product can be complicated, especially in the second-hand market where there are plenty of counterfeits. Luxor was designed to help make this distinction, to know with certainty the origin of a product and to buy new products in complete safety.
