The next Bourse aux Technologies by IMT is on 20 November at the Télécom Physique Strasbourg, themed on digital health technologies

Bourses aux technologies

The Bourses aux Technologies run by the IMT are days for meetings and discussions between researchers and SMEs. The aim of the exercise is to provide SMEs with easier access to the results of academic research and thus to develop future innovations. Its USP is the range of technologies it brings from all the schools of the Institute and its partners, in one given region and in one area of expertise.

The latest edition will take place from 9:30am to 3pm at the Télécom Physique Strasbourg – Pôle API, 300 Boulevard Sébastien Brant, 67400 Illkirch-Graffenstaden (how to get there).

Come and discover more than 15 future healthcare technologies ready to be transferred to boost businesses’ competitiveness!

The Bourse aux Technologies concept

SMEs generally have few ties to the academic world and need innovative technologies. The academic world is constantly producing innovative technologies that can be transferred to the industrial world in order to create new applications for the market. To bring together these two worlds, IMT, a major contributor to research and innovation, wished to develop its concept of a Technologies Exchange (Bourse aux Technologies), which it initiated in 2007, by involving its regional partners. Its USP is the range of technologies it brings from all the schools of the Institute and its partners, in a given region and in one area of expertise.
These meetings are now part of the program for promoting the range of technologies of public research organizations implemented by the Consortium de Valorisation Thématique CVSTENE (Future Investments), dedicated to science and digital technologies.
