Celebrating our innovative employees

We have a lot to be proud of at Dassault Systèmes, and at the top of that list is our passionate and hard-working employees.

Sustainable innovation is at the heart of our company’s purpose – harmonizing product, nature and life – and every day our teams strive to achieve that. To celebrate their collaborations, each year we hold 3DS Innovation Forwards, an in-house competition that rewards the most innovative team projects. We get hundreds of submissions that represent thousands of people’s work. Projects can be submitted across five categories including customer experience, industry experience and improving science and technology.

As we start gathering our 2021 nominations, we took a look back at past winning projects. Some of these were shared on our YouTube channel, and we wanted to bring a handful to you here as well.

Sit back and get ready to be inspired! And if you’re interested in coming on board to work with highly innovative minds, check out our job postings.

We look forward to sharing the 2021 accomplishments down the road!

“What we’ve succeeded in doing, in times of global crisis, proves one thing: at Dassault Systèmes, anything is possible!” Watch how a team applied their expertise in 3D airflow simulation to help public facilities like hospitals prevent the spread of COVID-19? 


What if everyone could make a 3D sketch from an existing hand-drawn image? That’s the question one 3DS team asked; watch how they created a process to make 3D available to all.


How crucial is it to explore a city’s past in-depth to more accurately predict how its future? One 3DS team is tackling that question by adding a new dimension into studying urban heritage: time.


How can Biomimicry inspire sustainable innovation? Along with contacts from UniLaSalle, a 3DS team applied our simulation software to create and study an underwater fish nest that could hold the key to slowing down coastal erosion.
