On November 14, four of the five candidates selected to participate in the First Step Challenge will submit their funding requests (which are required if a start-up turns out to be the chosen track to technology transfer).
The four projects—a biomarker-based diagnostic test; a miniaturized, low-power geolocation system; software to ensure interoperability between connected objects; and a miniaturized, low-cost system to detect trace substances in liquids—originated at Leti.
The fifth project stems from research being carried out by a post-doc student at the CEA Physical Sciences Division. It involves developing an energy-storage application for a new silicon nanowire production method. The project, while not eligible for a grant, is receiving the full range of First Step support services.
