A commercialized research
At the junction of laboratories and companies

Transforming scientific results into economic success and innovation, is the issue of "commercialization of research." Objectives: Better treat and participate in the economic development of the nation. This profession, still new in Europe, requires multiple skills at the interface between government laboratories, and industrial companies. This issue, combined with a growth objective justifies the joint and multiplied effort from all players.

The tools for commercialization 

To ensure the basic functions: detection of inventions, maturation, proof of concept, industrial protection including patents, demonstration and prototyping, transfers or licenses entrepreneurship, several tools have been developed: 

  • Competitiveness clusters
  • Commercialization subsidiaries of research organizations
  • And today the new technology transfer acceleration companies (SATT)
