Total s rd model

The problems are long-term and open, with no unique solutions, and they involve continuous questioning and rich ideation.

The issues are critical and require advanced knowledge as well as development that can be shared between partners:

Combining competences

Possibility to identify generic results and specific applications

The team is first class (a leader in its domain) and has a good experience in working with industrial partners.

The team is a good pool for recruitment.

Intellectual property rules are well understood by each side and agreed beforehand.
