Innovation and the promotion of research: a priority development axis

Aix-Marseille Université has chosen to organize its innovation, development and technology transfer policy by leading and coordinating the missions of all the site's stakeholders, who each act at a level in the value chain. This organization reflects AMU's desire to make innovation its third pillar of development, with training and research, and to conduct jointly with its site partners a policy that consists in strengthening the socio-economic impact of higher education and research.

AMU has a set of mechanisms created during the 2012-2017 period to support innovation and the promotion of research: valorisation committee; intellectual property charter and innovation guide; labelling of more than 50 technological platforms; awareness of business creation via the Entreprendre website with AMU; framework agreements with companies in the research sectors;...

Other specific actions will be implemented throughout the 2018-2022 contract, including the creation of the Cité de l'innovation et des Savoirs (CISAM).
