The concept of Bourses aux Technologies

IMT’s Bourses aux Technologies is a series of meetings and exchanges between researchers and SMEs. The aim of this event is to allow SMEs to access academic research results more easily and thus to develop the innovations of the future. Its originality lies in bringing new technologies from all the Institute’s schools and partners to a given region or sector.

These meetings are now a part of the promotion program in terms of public research organizations’ technologies, implemented by the Thematic Enhancement Consortium (Investments of the Future) and dedicated to digital sciences and technologies.
