SATTs are local players that simplify, accelerate and facilitate the transfer of technology from public research to companies of all sizes.
With an investment capacity that is unique in France, the SATTs detect and protect inventions, finance and support the resulting innovation projects until they are adopted by companies, while bearing the technological and financial risk inherent in these projects.
