Technological maturity prerequisite

  • Proof of academic concept (TRL 3)

Market maturity prerequisite

  • Application market has been identified, benchmarking elements have been analyzed (positioning of the technology as regards academic and industrial state of the art, identification of competition solutions).

Intellectual property

  • No publication should have been made before the scientific results are protected.

A pre-selection phase to choose the finalists: pitch to SATT Paris-Saclay team who will assess the innovative nature, maturity and added value of your project vis-a-vis the market, the robustness of its IP and the motivation of your team: the best projects will be selected as “finalists” and will have the opportunity to enhance and validate their technology/market suitability in preparation for the selection phase

2. A selection phase to choose the winners: following three months of work to strengthen your application, you will make a joint presentation to SATT Paris-Saclay bodies (Investment Committee and Board of Directors) to obtain final validation of your project and, as one of the winners, benefit from the entire Tech Transfer program
