Innovation is what drives development at IN Groupe
More than a key challenge, innovation is intimately linked with the very history of IN Groupe. Seen as an integral part of our development, we enjoy pride of place at the crossroads of issues that structure modern societies: we are a pioneer capable of imagining and offering cutting-edge technological solutions based on the latest scientific advances, at the centre of usage, technology and market circles.
At IN Groupe, innovation is based on a policy of boldly anticipating the future. Based on Civic Tech and GovTech (technologies at the service of citizens), our approach leads to solutions that make public services more accessible and efficient for citizens, whilst ensuring their safety to strengthen the democratic relationship. It is implemented through numerous fields of research: identity and the impact of digital life, cybersecurity, smartphones and mobility, IoT, smart transportation, including autonomous vehicles, and more.
Our promise to the market: Privacy and Security by Design
IN Groupe delivers identities and digital services that are easy to use and offer a very high level of security, whilst respecting users' personal data. This expertise on an international scale, in keeping with our promise, is based on interoperable technologies that are open to their ecosystem.
Thinking ahead to protect individual identities
IN Groupe's Innovation department relies on our teams' very high level of expertise to tackle the major challenges facing future identities. What technological solutions can be devised to better detect and combat deepfakes? How can we prepare the company of the future? How can we better protect individual identities and enable them to survive over time, even over centuries? IN Groupe has committed all our R&D know-how to these questions, so that we can design tomorrow's solutions today.

Targeted innovation to meet market expectations
For IN Groupe, innovation from scratch is not enough. All our solutions are studied, developed and applied based on a specific market requirement. Our policy of innovation thus provides concrete, immediately applicable solutions for governments, companies and individuals. Our methodologies allow us, notably through tangible experimental achievements (Proof of Concept), to demonstrate the relevance, feasibility and durability of our solutions.
Innovating to protect data
As a trusted third party and a recognised identity provider by law, IN Groupe contributes to the reliability and protection of our clients' digital assets. To do this, we have adopted a responsible approach, basing our actions on ethical principles to avoid both the concentration of identity data among a few parties and attempts to monetise them. In terms of data governance (collection and processing), we position ourselves in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation on Data Protection (GDPR).
