Ouest Valorisation – a SATT (society for accelerating the transfer of technology) was set up as part of “Investments for the Future”, the invitation to projects launched by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
The SATT aims to help higher education institutions to strengthen their position as actors in regional, national and European economic development. To do so, it has the financial capacity to invest in R&D projects selected by its team and oriented towards market needs.
Ouest Valorisation provides companies with resources for innovations originating in public research. It is in a unique position as an operator between public research and the private sector.
