We are receptive to your ideas

Propose your ideas to build together the grid for smart power


We are convinced that smart electricity should be pooled and shared. The electricity transmission system of the future is jointly built brick-by-brick based on all the knowledge.

If you have any innovation proposals related to our R&D programme and the aims of our specialisations, do not hesitate to submit your spontaneous initiatives.


What is a spontaneous initiative?

This involves a proposal for cooperation at your initiative or in response to a theme proposed by RTE.

Who is concerned?

Spontaneous initiatives may be proposed by any organisation (individual, company, university, etc).

How can you submit your file?

RTE is committed to the careful review of all the suggestions and answering the authors. The response time depends on the technical level of the proposal submitted.
