IDEMIA will also continue to invest in R&D to develop high-tech future game-changing innovations and solutions amounting to €1bn over five years, by tapping into the strengths and know-how of the two companies that formed IDEMIA, while serving both public and private sector customers.

Didier LAMOUCHE, CEO of IDEMIA group, declared: “The strategic intent behind the creation of IDEMIA is to offer to the world state-of-the-art security solutions together with biometric-based convenience. The new management team is composed of talented and skilled leaders, coming from various horizons, who will be capable to deliver upon this vision and address and anticipate our clients’ needs worldwide.”
