The Bourses aux Technologies concept

Bourse aux Technologies (Technology Days) by IMT are days for meetings and discussions between researchers and SMEs. The aim is to give SMEs easier access to academic research results and to consequently develop the innovations of the future. Its uniqueness lies in the fact it brings together technology produced in all the Institute’s schools as well as by its partners, in a given region and subject.

These events are part of the program set up by the CVSTENE Thematic Promotion Consortium (Investissements d’Avenir) devoted to digital sciences and technologies, for the promotion of the technology offerings of public research bodies.
