laboratories - EuraTechnologies

Laboratories and research centres

Our goal is to support IT companies from the region and encourage the transfer of technologies between laboratories and innovative start-up.

EuraTechnologies brings together a significant number of laboratories and tools for demonstrating and transferring technologies, in a spirit of global entrepreneurship.

Each laboratory has an offer and/or a program that is specific and shared with EuraTechnologies’ vision.

Inria – EuraTechnologies

Inria’s presence in the EuraTechnologies ICT innovation ecosystem takes the form of a one-of-a-kind 200-sq. m. facility; the Inria Plateau. It presents the work done by the teams in the Inria Lille – Nord Europe center. The goal is to foster interaction between the scientific community, economists, and society at large. In that spirit, a collaborative work space has been made available to all those involved, along with a program of activities throughout the year.

A unique space

The result of work conducted by joint research teams run together with our partner establishments—Lille University, the CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research), the Ecole Centrale of Lille, CWI, and ULB—the Inria Plateau, located at EuraTechnologies, is a space for demonstrations and interaction between the industry and the research carried out in our institute.

Since its creation in 2010, the Inria Plateau has proven to be an effective mechanism for technological watch and a forum for discussions centered on digital innovation.

The team from the Innovation Transfer and Partnerships Department at the Inria Lille – Nord Europe center implements initiatives throughout the year to meet the requirements of companies evolving in the fields of information and communication technologies.

CEA Tech

CEA Tech—an innovation accelerator for the industrial sector—opened its facility at EuraTechnologies in 2016.

CEA Tech is the research unit of CEA, and brings together 4,500 engineers/researchers who devote their time to industrial innovation and file some 600 patents each year. Thanks to its targeted areas of research (energy technologies, healthcare, digital systems, electronics and communications), CEA Tech develops and disseminates essential generic technologies for all types of businesses and all industrial sectors by providing a gateway between theoretical research and applications.

Since 2013, CEA Tech—with the support of regional authorities (PRTT: Regional Platforms for Technology Transfer)—has been progressively growing its presence in various regions of France and offering its technologies to local businesses. CEA Tech specifically responds to the innovation needs of the regional manufacturing sector, in a role that complements those of scientific and economic players in the region.

In 2016, CEA Tech’s latest PRTT was set up in the Nord – Pas-de-Calais – Picardy region at EuraTechnologies, with offices and a showroom where it presents innovative technologies for businesses.
