Industrial valorization

  • When you have a scientific results you want to disseminate, you must ask yourself about potential industrial valorization. It exists various types of valorization processes:
  • Protection through intellectual property (e.g. patenting)
  • Maturation (up to proof of concept) and feasibility study
  • Economic study coupled with a market study: evaluation of the technology, possible market, identification of potential industrial partners
  • How to present the product and its promotion
  • Operate-transfer
  • Valorization of patents
  • Consulting
  • Business creation
  • Licensing
  • Stake acquisition in a business

If you have questions, you can get help from the valorization service from your University. The local correspondents are:
