Assess the innovation potential of your research results

Are you a researcher, professor or student researcher who has uncovered promising results that could shape the future?

Axelys’ experts are here to support you at each stage of the development process, so that your research results can shine and generate maximum impact on society.

We transform your research results so that they are deployed to a stakeholder such as a company or a public sector organization.

Several types of research results can be valued, such as:

  • A physical technology, a molecule, a process
  • A software, product, intervention, program or service
  • A guide, method, kit or process
  • A literary or artistic work

Axelys is involved in all areas of public research, such as life sciences, health, engineering, humanities, social sciences, art and literature.

Talk to us about your research results

To begin development and transfer of a technological, human or social innovation project, you must declare your invention, your work or your software to the research office of your institution.

Your declaration will be sent to Axelys for the assessment of commercial or societal potential, either by your innovation broker or your research office. If the assessment turns out to be positive, Axelys’ work begins.

Contact your research office or your innovation broker to learn more about the services Axelys provides.

It is good practise to declare your research results to your research institution before disclosing them publicly (e.g.: scientific publications, conferences, demonstrations to peers). Failure to do so might compromise or prevent its patentability and transfer.

Take advantage of advice, funding and grant programs

We support researchers in identifying the main steps required for the scaling and commercial deployment of their innovation project.

Axelys is the single representative of the technological maturation envelope of the Ministère de l’Économie, de l’Innovation et de l’Énergie [Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Energy].

Other funding or grant programs are available. Our experts are there to guide and advise you.
