Linksium helps researchers transfer technologies and create businesses

Group Created with Sketch.

To turn research results into innovative solutions,

we provide researchers with:

  • 100% personalised support
  • Financial support, which might enable recruitment of an engineer or a PhD for the research laboratory,
  • Access to the SATT’s network and tools

What results can be expected? Identify applications and the potential market, build a demonstrator, consolidate of intellectual property rights, formof a transfer team.

The success of this first stage, called maturation, enables all the necessary conditions to be fulfilled to generate value from the technology, either by creating a startup (incubation) or via transfer to industry (commercialisation), depending on the strategy preferred.

  • Market
  • Technology
  • Intellectual property
  • Team


This involves meeting potential users of your technology, understanding their needs, expectations, constraints and uses before selecting a priority application. This task is conducted during meetings at specialised exhibitions or specific market surveys, as well as industrial events. It enables the specification for the demonstrator to be developed and then adjusted during the maturation stage.

Eligibility conditions

Researchers, engineers, PhDs, PhD students at the end of their thesis
