  • We collaborate with Start-up

    CNRS Innovation has been supporting us from the start, initially through a direct investment in our company and since then on a wide number of topics, from IP management to fundrasing efforts. Furthermore, they managed to adapt their processes to the specific start-up pace of work, making them the ideal partners to interact with the academic community.
