At the heart of a powerful and innovative ecosystem

At Docaposte, our ability to innovate is also based on our willingness to federate an ecosystem and on our ability to surround ourselves with partners - from the worlds of research, academia or industry - who share our values and our vision: to build trusted digital technology that is useful for everyone. In this way, we are building a solid, federating ecosystem as part of a co-innovation approach

Our ecosystem enables us to embody a dynamic led at Docaposte by a cross-functional Innovation team.

Our conviction: in front of the digital giants, we believe in the strength of the European ecosystem to, seek, find, develop and industrialize cutting-edge, trusted, ethical, responsible and technologically independent solutions.

Docaposte federates Tech with the Master Dev France event

This not-to-be-missed event is also an opportunity for all Docaposte employees to get involved in the event, and even, for developers, to train and compete as a team in the live code competition and compete for the prize of Best Dev in France!

We share a strong commitment with the Inria Foundation: to promote responsible digital transformation. Backed by the Inria Research Institute, the Foundation's ambition is to foster and support research and innovation projects that have a positive impact on people, society and the planet.

In collaboration with Inria's research teams, we are creating today the technological fundamentals of tomorrow in the major fields of IT. From the decentralization of algorithms for Machine Learning independent of data location, to homomorphic encryption enabling data mining without information disclosure, to the design of formal proof of security or the robustness of electronic voting, we are exploring in depth the key concepts of our customers' future technological foundations.

Alliance Blockchain France

The Blockchain France Alliance came into being in June 2022 under the impetus of several major French manufacturers, universities, public institutions and start-ups in the blockchain sector. Brought together as a consortium, these players aim to advance a common, sovereign blockchain infrastructure project.

Alongside Orange Business Services, Docaposte, as an active member, is leading the Blockchain France Alliance and currently holds the presidency.

The aim of the Blockchain France Alliance is to deploy a common blockchain infrastructure, which will gradually be opened up to all French industries and administrations wishing to benefit from the technology. At the same time, the Blockchain France Alliance represents French businesses in dealings with the French government and the European Commission.

In the longer term, this association opens the door to the prospect of collaboration on a European scale.
