The Carnot institutes network’s purpose is to develop research partnerships with companies and fostering technology transfers. This involves an organised transfer of public research results for an optimal benefit with the best possible socio-economic impact.


The Carnot institutes have drawn up theCarnot institutes’ Code of Best Practices for Intellectual Property and Knowledge & Technology Transfers. This Code guarantees that a unified approach to intellectual property and transfer issues will be taken across all of the network’s institutes.
