PROJECT MATURATION

Kick off

Recruit the teams needed to carry out the project and allocate the physical resources required for the technological development of your project.

Monthly review

Monitor the proper performance of the maturation programme via monthly meetings of the Maturation Project Steering Committee made up of the maturation engineer, lawyer, maturation project manager, development manager, researcher and possibly the manufacturer and operator.

Milestone review

Recognise that the project has progressed from one strategic stage to the next, to release additional human and financial resources.

IP and Development review

Strengthen the intellectual property of your innovation: register new patents or software packages, formalise the know-how, register trademarks, designs and models: the Intellectual Property and Development Committee meets once a year and whenever necessary to maintain the background of the invention and protect the results.

Prepare for use of the maturation results

  • Canvass target manufacturers for the technology transfer, or
  • Prepare the pre-incubation business start-up: encourage project owners to think about their business start-up plan during the technological maturation phase. Establish contacts with the ecosystem of entrepreneurs and in certain cases, help to identify the future CEO.

LEGAL FOCUS

Sign the licensing agreement or mandate between SATT Paris-Saclay and the establishments

  • Draw up the exclusive licensing agreement for the background and foreground IP with a right to sublicense, or draw up an agency contract to allow SATT to use the results of the maturation project.

PROJECT TRANSFER

Assess the value creation of the project to value the transfer:
4 stages requiring an average of 6 to a maximum of 12 months.
