Service description
This service is offered to EIC Pathfinder beneficiaries interested in connecting with the technical, technological, and scientific competencies and expertise of some of the more than 300 public laboratories and research teams in Paris-Saclay. Paris-Saclay is a world-class deep-tech ecosystem, specialising in cross-cutting technologies as AI, and six industrial verticals: i) Health-Biotech; ii) Cleantech; iii) Mobility; iv) Digital Technologies; v) Aerospace, defense and security; and iv) Foodtech. Supported by the SATT Paris-Saclay (local TTO), the EPA Paris-Saclay will assist the beneficiary in navigating the complex ecosystem of Paris-Saclay and its array of industrial players, academic and entrepreneurial actors, with a primary focus on the sector(s) and technologies of interest. Furthermore, the SATT Paris-Saclay will work on identifying competencies, projects, and/or laboratories present in Paris-Saclay, based on the beneficiary's needs, translating into at least 2 qualified meetings with research and technology transfer teams, with technical support from the SATT in at least one of the meetings. This service includes a full day of preparation work and a full day of support by the SATT Paris-Saclay.

Disclaimer related to service

This service does not include additional costs related to accessing the technical or technological equipment of the research teams at Paris-Saclay. The number of meetings to be held will depend on a case-by-case basis but will be a minimum of 2, with at least 1 accompanied by the SATT in one of them. The agreed-upon meetings are exploratory in nature, so the results that may arise are independent of the work carried out by the EPA Paris-Saclay and the SATT Paris-Saclay.
