One of our main objectives is to support innovation, technology transfer and the creation of start-ups for quantitative biology. Being part of PSL, we thus participate to their program of valorisation and innovation through calls for Proof-Of-Concept projects, also called prematuration grants. These calls are open for innovative projects with a high risk with the will to develop technology transfer and create a start-up.
Each selected project receives a financial support between 90K€ and 120K€ to cover the costs of human resources, equipment, operations and external services, for a maximum duration of 18 months.
These prematuration grants are joint calls with PSL that allow to fund several projects, among which 2 or 3 are funded by PSL-Qlife. These projects should be in the field of quantitative biology and lead by members of our network.
