IUEM laboratories’ research is the source of many innovations that are the subject of:
- technology transfers to socio-economic partners
- Creation of companies by IUEM members.
The innovation ecosystem partners: SATT Ouest Valorisation, the “Pôle de compétitivité Mer Bretagne Atlantique” and the “Technopôle” support IUEM in its efforts to promote innovations.
Creating companies from IUEM helps to promote the technological innovations of the research carried out by its laboratories, the know-how and skills of its researchers, engineers and technicians, and the resources of its research units, to help business creation project leaders in the development of their products. The leaders of the young innovative spin-off companies all come from the IUEM laboratories where they prepared their theses.
The scientific and geographical proximity allows the development of strong links and multiple relationships between young innovative companies and the laboratory of origin of IUEM: hosting, subcontracting of research projects managed by the laboratory, Industrial Convention for Training through Research (CIFRE), joint responses to national and international calls for proposals. Conversely, the company subcontracts the laboratory for research work on the projects it manages.
IUEM develops many partnerships with companies in the fields of research and training. These links and collaborations make it possible to identify new research themes that reflect the problems encountered by companies and to take charge of all or part of the research work to be undertaken.
Apprenticeship tax: invest in IUEM
IUEM students will be the actors of tomorrow’s “blue growth”. IUEM trains its students to master a discipline and to practice the interdisciplinarity necessary to deal with the complexity of marine and coastal environments. As the coordinator of the ISblue University School of Research, IUEM encourages students to international mobility.
