The In’C2 initiative

Institut Curie
Launched in 2017 at Institut Curie, the Curie In’C2 initiative is an awareness-raising initiative about Technology Transfer. It aims at promoting Innovation, Creativity and Curiosity by encouraging Institut Curie members to transfer the enormous potential of their work and ideas into accessible and commercialized technologies and products.

The Curie In’C2 initiative rounds up a community of people interested in Technology Transfer & Entrepreneurship and offers them a set of original events organized to help them:

  • Network in the innovation world
  • Refine their skills in technology transfer
  • Experience the translation of their own ideas into innovations, from wherever they are in term of technology readiness level

The Curie In’C2 initiative is hosted and supported by the Curie Technology Transfer Office and collaborate with the Institut Curie's Training Unit as well as the Association des Doctorants et Jeunes Docteurs de l’Institut Curie (ADIC)

The In’C2 adventure just started in 2017 with the first recruitment of Curie innovators. Our aim is clearly to grow throughout the years to become a key player and accelerator of innovation at Institut Curie. To build the best environment for our community, partnership and support is critical.
