The Lab brings together research activities and commercial exploitation. We conduct multidisciplinary and collaborative research to anticipate and analyse tomorrow’s innovations, find new business models and generate startup projects.

We collaborate with technological partners (large companies, research centers) in an open innovation approach. We use collaborative intelligence and systematic analysis methodologies to mature technologies and generate new business concepts.

We are typically interested in all transdisciplinary topics.
