Scientific Innovation: an organic link between research and education to promote innovation

Placing technology transfer at the forefront of priorities in creating Université Paris-Saclay conveys its ambition to jointly build an ecosystem that is favorable to the production of innovation and the development of industrial activities.


The university’s objectives for innovation are to :

  • Become one of the top 10 international universities in terms of economic impact, and become a significant driving force in the development of the Ile-de-France region, as well as in the renewal of the region's industrial fabric ; and
  • double the number of innovation and patents filed and the number of tehnology companies created annually in 10 years and triple it in 15 years


Key factors of success

The objective is not to clone foreign systems, which are otherwise very efficient, but rather to invent/create the model that will best promote the promising ecosystem of Université Paris-Saclay.

The three main criteria of Université Paris-Saclay's technology transfer policy will be international visibility, reputation of the best researchers, students and business people, and responsiveness. Responsiveness will mainly be measured by our capacity to respond to, or support, internal or external requests within deadlines that are compatible with the demands of the business world.

Two essential factors of success:

  • Our investment in student entrepreneurship, which constitutes a priority for the Paris-Saclay Campus ecosystem
  • Our capacity to facilitate exchanges between academic and socio-economic players and to facilitate a network of innovation and business players from the Saclay area around structured projects. Several working groups involving teaching institutions, research organizations, industrial partners and also local authorities have been set up to successfully set up these projects.
