Alstom Innovation Awards

I Nove You™ at a glance

I Nove You™ is a yearly, company-wide internal programme designed to reward the creativity of Alstom’s people in all its forms. All employees across the company can submit their innovation projects in six different categories. Additionally, there is a special prize rewarded to an outstanding innovation.

Alstom can only be as innovative as its people: it is the ingenuity of employees that fuels the company’s drive to revolutionise mobility. For almost 16 years now, I Nove You program plays the central role in this quest: finding Alstom teams with incredible projects, showcasing them to the whole company and then building on their foundation.

Unleashing innovation from within

In 2023-24, the contest reached an outstanding number of 1,518 submissions from 101 different sites representing 36 countries and involving more than 3,100 employees, demonstrating the strong potential for innovation within our company.

To close the I Nove You competition, a special ceremony is organised every year to recognise the best innovations at a global level among all the projects submitted in different categories. But it does not stop there, the best regional and local projects are also recognised at their level.
