Sylvain Colomb took over from Alain Briand as head of the CEA Grenoble’s tech transfer and spinoff programs in January.
Colomb, 41 years old, is an electronics engineer and has personal experience starting a spinoff. He is one of the cofounders of Ethera, spun off from the CEA in 2010 to develop indoor air quality analyzers based on a nanoporous material. Colomb came back to the CEA in 2016, taking a position at the CEA Tech regional branch in Hauts-de-France.
His roadmap aligns with the national CEA policy to boost startup creation. His strategy is to increase the number of spinoffs by identifying and supporting researchers with potential startups and by leveraging the local networks of startups spun off from the CEA.
