Who is it for?

Do you have an innovative idea and a high value-added digital technology? Do you have a project that falls within the field of digital deeptech (Inria project-team domains)?

Can you commit to your project full-time from April 2022?

Then this call is for you! 

Apply and come and boost your project with the Inria Startup Studio program in the Inria Bordeaux Sud-Ouest center!


The program leads the future entrepreneur to the creation of the startup. The program lasts at least six months, depending on the time required, and helps the entrepreneur gain autonomy and finance the pre-creation phase. 

Project leaders are jointly supported by the Inria Startup Studio team and the innovation team of one of the eight Inria research centers. They benefit from an introduction to the fundamentals of technological business creation:

  • A product and an associated technology;
  • An initial implementation in the form of a proof of concept;
  • A market access logic;
  • A strategy for the company in the making;
  • And above all, a team that enters the dynamic.
  • The construction starts thanks to the financing and the positive tension of the project towards the creation phase. This is the heart of codesign. During the codesign, an original model of co-construction, the teams work together to find the path leading from the software idea to the market.
