Institut Carnot M.I.N.E.S provides companies with a range of cutting-edge, inter-disciplinary expertise, and its longstanding experience in innovation and technology transfers, helping them to innovate and gain share on markets with high growth potential.
Institut Carnot M.I.N.E.S is capitalising on the outcomes of its first Label Carnot call for projects (2006-2010), assessed by the ANR (French Research Agency) as being “outstanding” and hailed for its high level of transfers to businesses:
- 75% of the responses provided to microenterprises, SMEs and midcaps were to proof-of-concept and research-demo level,
- 20% of the solutions proposed to large corporations reached “operating-environment component or integrated system” maturity levels.
Institut Carnot M.I.N.E.S is part of a broader innovation support ecosystem, participating in 23 competitiveness clusters.
Institut Carnot M.I.N.E.S is consolidating its competitive positioning in research partnerships as a player in the Future Investments programme.
It was selected, through the Energy of the Future Institut Carnot in the “Carnot SME” call for projects, with the AVENE-PME project aiming to enhance the competitive edge of microenterprises, SMEs and midcaps in the highly competitive area of the energies of the future.
It is involved in
- 4 IRT technology research institutes (AESE, Jules Verne, RAILENIUM and SystemX),
- 7 IEED carbon-free energy excellence institutes (Géodénergies, IFMAS, INEF4, INDEED, PIVERT, PS2E and VeDeCoM),
- 6 Equipex research facilities (Arronax, GENEPI, IVTV, Manutech, MATMECA and Robotech),
- 3 SATT technology-transfer centres (Midi-Pyrénées, Ouest Valo and Saclay).
It is continuing to develop its high scientific standards by taking part in 9 Labex clusters of excellence: CaPPA, CHEMISYST, CominLab, IMoBS3, Iron, Lasips, Manutech, NUMEV and SOLSTICE.
Developing new industrial sectors implies mastering all the links in the value chain. In energy, for example, the aim is to cover issues of production, storage, transport, distribution, costs and sustainable development. The Institut Carnot M.I.N.E.S proposes its interdisciplinary approach to innovation, combining scientific and technological progress with new economic and social models.
