Our teams are already working to anticipate businesses’ transformations, innovations and R&D projects.
On a day-to-day level, businesses are the partners of our labs. Every year, Carnot signs over 10 200 direct R&D agreements with businesses, and this does not include the numerous collaborative R&D projects (as part of EU programmes, ANR-sponsored thematic research, competitive clusters, etc.).
Bilateral R&D projects with businesses are covered by customised agreements. These may last a few weeks or a few years and budgets may range from a few thousand to several million euros.
Research agreements with Carnot may involve:
- bilateral R&D projects,
- consulting and expertise,
- tech platforms,
- collaborative R&D projects,
- shared labs.
