Research & Developpement

scientific expertise

The “Energies du future” laboratories are regularly evaluated on both scientific expertise and professionalism by HCERES. Thus, laboratories G2Elab, GIPSA-lab, LEGI, LPSC, SIMaP, NÉEL Institute are rated A +, and G-SCOP LEPMI, LGP2, LMGP are rated A.

They also undertake steps to increase their expertise and visibility:

  • ISO certification (80% of members of the Institute are Certified)
  • Equipex and labex (CEMAM, LANEF, GANEX, PERSYVAL-Lab TEC XXI, MINOS, ROBOTEX, AMIQUAL4HOME, LASUP, Supergrid)
  • Participation in excellence networks
  • Total number of patents (1364 patents in 2014)
  • Number of publications (694 publications in 2014)

research partnership

With our recognized scientific expertise, we therefore have a portfolio of research partnership. The amount of direct partnerships with industry grew 30% to € 67 million in 2012. Totally, nearly 222 companies that trust us in 2014, one third of SME / VSE. This amount completed with  institutional partnerships, is also on the rise.

Since 2011, five companies were created from the activities of our laboratories: Vesta system, ISORG, Enerstone, HotBlock on board, Freemens.

scientific ressourcing

To strengthen the development of research partnerships between public agencies and private industry, the government has set up a label "Carnot". The latter is attributed to research structures that have a recognized scientific expertise and a portfolio of partnership research result.

Our institute is funded by the National Research Agency (ANR). This funding is dedicated to support scientific projects selected from our laboratories. The objective of this initiative is to enhance the expertise of the laboratories to anticipate future technological transfers.

The supported projects are subject to an assessment of annual scientific ressourcing.

Technology transfer

The developed technologies are transferred from laboratories to industry. These transfers are regulated by the good practices charter of intellectual property and knowledge and technology transfer of Carnot Institutes. Theses follow development policies of the member institutions.

  • Patents on discoveries and innovations
  • Validation of the matching between discoveries and innovations to the market / industry
  • Technology Transfer: adapting the “know how” to product / process of ndustrial partner
  • Staff training to technology transfer
  • Licensing
  • Management of intellectual property
