Technologies go through different stages of maturity during their development. We support you throughout the technology readiness levels, from proof of concept to technology transfer (with patent filing and/or startup creation), through prototyping and production.
Télécom and Société Numérique Carnot Institute relies on a vast network of leading schools to connect you to French academic excellence. Students in continuing education or apprenticeship programs can therefore invest in your innovation activities via an internship or a Master’s project.

Several technology transfer options are available. The results can be returned entirely to you, become the sole property of Télécom & Société Numérique Carnot Institute, or be covered by a co-ownership agreement between your company and the Carnot Institute.
Access to results
You can decide to leave the results in open access, maintain complete control over their distribution or opt for an intermediate sharing system.
