Our ambition

INNOVATION - Our Ambition - Institut Pasteur
Developing research applications is one of the objectives of the new Institut Pasteur 2019/2023 strategic plan, whose goal is to give new impetus to basic research and increase its impact on health issues.

Specific measures have been introduced to boost the capacity to develop interactions with industrial partners; such actions include financial incentives, placing technology transfer amongst the performance assessment criteria for scientists, and most notably, the establishment of the Consultative Innovation Committee and the Accelerator of Innovation:

The Consultative Innovation Committee is composed of internal experts in both scientific and industrial research. It provide a technical expertise that allows the Institut Pasteur to look at research projects not only in terms of scientific interest, but also in terms of industrial feasibility and potential market value.

The Accelerator of Innovation created in 2019 at the Institut Pasteur must bridge the technological development gap that exists today on the road towards the licencing and commercialisation of new scientific discoveries. By combining financing strategies, industrial technical support and business expertise, the Accelerator of Innovation will permit promising innovations to move efficiently from the laboratory to the commercial domain.

 

    By helping our scientists to turn their excellent science and ideas into applications and innovative products and services, we want to make healthcare available for everyone and everywhere in the world. Technology transfer and the development of industrial partnerships boost funding for new projects and benefit public health

    Our Success Stories

    INNOVATION - Our Sucess Stories - Institut Pasteur

    Harnessing the momentum of the new strategic plan of the Institute Pasteur, the development of research applications has recently been reinforced as a key component of the institute’s scientific policy. Specific measures have been introduced to boost the capacity to develop interactions with industry partners. This strategy, initiated about two years ago, is already bearing fruit and has led to notable successes in Institut Pasteur's key areas: therapeutics, technologies, vaccines and diagnostics.
