Greentown Labs partners with French building materials firm Saint-Gobain

What's up in New England?  | 

Somerville cleantech incubator Greentown Labs announced on Friday a partnership with Saint-Gobain, the French-based building materials corporation, that will have Saint-Gobain share research and development space at Greentown.

The announcement was part of Gov. Deval Patrick’s Massachusetts-France Innovation Partnership Mission, aimed at strengthening the state's relationship with France in order to create economic opportunities throughout Massachusetts.

“This partnership between Greentown Labs and Saint-Gobain is further evidence that Massachusetts cleantech companies are competing in the global marketplace,” said Patrick in a statement.

Saint-Gobain is Greentown Labs' first-ever corporate sponsor to operate and share a research and development test facility at Greentown Labs. Saint-Gobain will be testing new technologies and make the lab space and its engineers available to member companies, according to a release.

The two-year sponsorship agreement, terms of which wee not disclosed, will build upon Saint-Gobain’s presence in the Commonwealth and help create connections between Saint-Gobain and the innovative member companies of Greentown Labs that are developing game-changing technologies, according to a release.

It's the first time Saint-Gobain has partnered with startups with promising solutions in the fields of sustainable products, advanced materials, high-efficiency building solutions, clean technology and renewable energy sources. The 350-year-old company operates a division known as Saint-Gobain’s NOVA External Venturing Group that seeks partnerships with startups.

Earlier this month, Greentown announced a partnership with Boston-based energy software provider EnerNOC.
