The Bourses aux Technologies concept

SMEs have little connection with the academic world, yet need innovative technologies in order to grow. And the academic world produces a continuous stream of innovative technologies that can be transferred to industry in order to generate new applications on the market. To bring these two worlds together, IMT, a key player in research and innovation, developed its Bourse aux Technologies concept back in 2007, in tandem with its regional partners. It is original in that it offers technologies developed by all the institute’s graduate schools and partners, in a given region and specialty field.
This event is now an official part of the framework program to promote the offerings of public research institutions implemented by CVSTENE (Theme-based Promotion Consortium), a Future Investment body dedicated to digital sciences and technologies.
