Construction on the BHT2 building was completed last spring, and startup Prophesee moved its R&D department into a 154 sq. m space at the end of September.
Prophesee’s R&D team will be working on the integration of its neuromorphic vision technology into autonomous vehicles in partnership with Leti.
eLichens and Diabeloop to move in soon
Work is underway inside BHT2 to prepare spaces for two more companies expected to move in by year’s end. Startup eLichens (a Leti partner) designs patented gas sensors and air quality testing and forecasting systems. The company will occupy a 320 sq. m space that is currently being outfitted with office and lab equipment for the 25 eLichens employees that will be moving in at the end of November.
Diabeloop will be the last new tenant to move in this year, bringing an additional 50 people to BHT2. The startup is developing a smart system for the management of type-1 diabetes in partnership with Leti. Diabeloop will occupy the entire second floor (900 sq. m).
BHT2 manager MINATEC Entreprises is in talks with other potential tenants. BHT2 offers all of the amenities high-tech companies need, with modular spaces, fluid supply lines, and maintenance and security. However, it does take time to complete the detailed specifications necessary to customize each space to meet its future tenant’s requirements. In December, almost 40% of the building will be occupied—ahead of the initial target of 30%.
