Sharing to improve the way we innovate

At Pierre Fabre, innovation is a collective exercise and reflects a sharing approach in line with our founder’s vision: pool our in-house creativity and combine it with external technological resources and a business-wide, multi-disciplinary approach at Group level, for the benefit of patients and consumers. This approach, based on partnership and open innovation, means that new therapeutic and cosmetic solutions are brought to market more quickly.

E-health: open, win-win partnerships

For many years, innovation in the field of health care focused on molecules. We now look beyond prescription drugs to develop the most comprehensive therapeutic solutions. The huge rise in service-based digital solutions means we must adopt an open partnership approach to shape the way we will care for patients in the future.
