Grenoble Institute of Technology’s center for technology transfer will open in late October. The center, to be located in the new Phelma 2 building at MINATEC, will be dedicated to industrial R&D projects, offering more than a dozen 30-sq.-m workspaces for student groups from Grenoble Institute of Technology schools.
The industrial R&D projects, part of the second-year curriculum, also aim to provide small- and mid-sized businesses with access to advanced technology and know-how. Demand from businesses has far outpaced the school’s capacity of just four projects this year.
The new center will help solve the problem by boosting capacity. It will also serve as a home base for student entrepreneurs from Grenoble-Alpes University whose projects fall within Grenoble Institute of Technology’s scope.
