An innovative intermediation tool between companies and research institutions
The France-Canada Innovation Platform « IN2NOVATION » is dedicated to facilitate synergies in Canada between companies and research institutions. IN2NOVATION will connect Canadian and French companies based in Canada, willing to develop research projects in order to commercialize an innovative product, with academic research teams located in France and Canada through calls for proposals.
IN2NOVATION offers its services to any company willing to externalize its R&D capabilities in order to develop an innovative product or seeking to facilitate the adaptation of its products to a new market. In return, the Platform highlights the expertise of research teams developing innovative projects in areas of interest for companies, and can also promote the creation of research start-ups.
Access to innovation stakeholders
IN2NOVATION is a valuable cooperation tool allowing companies to reach a large network of innovation stakeholders in France and in Canada thanks to its close ties to the France-Canada Research Fund (FCRF). Established in 2000, the FCRF is an essential instrument of the Franco-Canadian research cooperation with more than 250 joint research projects funded to date.
The creation of this new innovation platform will draw on the reputation and expertise of the FCRF, which has been active for 19 years, as well as on the existing synergies between scientific communities in France and Canada. The Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation in France, Mitacs and Génome Québec as well as private companies are among the partners supporting the Platform.
