Capgemini Invent and Eramet selected as winners of the "Data & Technology" award in the "Syntec Conseil 2020 Grand Prix"

Capgemini Invent and Eramet are the winners of the "Data & Technology" award in the "Syntec Conseil 2020 Grand Prix" conducted in France on November 26th with their Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven program. Their close collaboration in the past 3 years has resulted in a successful development of Artificial Intelligence across all of the group's mining and metallurgical activities. The results obtained around productivity improvement, commercial performance and metal recovery will allow Eramet to accelerate its energy and environmental transition.


Eramet wanted to industrialize the use of Artificial Intelligence. To reinforce this deployment, it set up, together with Capgemini Invent, a "Data Factory"  comprising around fifty experts from the two companies. At the heart of this program lies the optimal use of data generated by the information systems, drones and connected sensors present in the group's 39 industrial sites around the world.

This transformation journey covers Eramet's entire value chain: real time industrial risks prediction, energy mix of industrial facilities optimization, and selective extraction of ore to ensure sustainable exploitation of resources.

Eramet is consolidating its ecological transition through the collective construction of innovative solutions for responsible, sustainable production, a priority for the group.
