INRAe, the French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment, brings together 18 research centers and 14 scientific departments around multidisciplinary research communities in France.
AgriLife Studio has partnered with INRAE to contribute to their calls for projects: Start & Grow, launched in September 2022 and InnoTech, launched in February 2023.
The Start & Grow program
The Start & Grow program aims to identify researchers who have an innovation that could be the subject of the creation of a startup. AgriLife Studio, along with INRAe, will accompany them in their reflection stages to identify the existence of a market and a viable economic model. A second session took place in march 2023, several sessions per year being forecasted.
As part of the InnoTech program, our entrepreneurs will be able to bring needs to the attention of INRAe research laboratories so that researchers can propose innovations under development. This is a real winning partnership that allows us to promote French research by creating startups with an international vocation, which meet a real market need identified by the AgriLife Studio teams.
