Innovation in the region

A considerable proportion of the research conducted at Inria Paris-Rocquencourt is geared towards meeting the technological needs of businesses. This is why we liaise constantly with socio-economic stakeholders and particularly businesses in all of the regions in which we operate, allowing us to meet their needs and make technology transfer an integral part of our research activities.

At the heart of competitiveness clusters

Competitiveness clusters open up considerable upstream research possibilities. In the automotive industry and the field of embedded systems, for instance, industrial operators are highly committed to our work and help to accelerate our projects, allowing us to meet businesses' needs in the shortest possible time. The scheme also benefits from considerable support from local and regional authorities in the implementation of tools and the creation of projects.

The research centre has special relationships with four main clusters:

  • System@tic  (design, production and control of complex systems)
  • Mov'eo  (advanced automobiles and means of transport that are safe for human beings and for the environment)
  • Cap Digital  (creation, edition, communication, processing and services for multimedia digital content and knowledge)
  • Medicen  (new technologies for health and innovative therapies)

Listening to industry

Building on its strong experience in partnerships with major groups and in business creation, Inria has developed a proactive technology transfer policy aimed at innovative SMEs, recognised as an essential element in boosting the competitiveness of the French and European economies. This policy is particularly well illustrated by the Inria Paris-Rocquencourt research centre, with many technology transfer projects and direct partnerships with SMEs in various fields (Distene, Numtech, LK2, Kwaga, Carmat, and
many more).
