What is the role of the Development and External Relations Department? How is this utilised on a daily basis at the Centre?
Salvatore Spinello is the Head of the Development and External Relations Department
A large proportion of the research that we currently conduct at the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest Centre aims to meet the technology needs of businesses.
This is why we hold ongoing dialogue with socioeconomic players in the greater Sud-Ouest region.
Supported by the Aquitaine Regional Council, the Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest Centre forms close ties with a network of regional partners, including competitiveness clusters, innovation agencies and thematic associations.
The Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest Research Centre aims to be active in the field of technology transfer. To this end, its activities are managed and coordinated to ensure the growing development of three types of results:
- Patent submission
- Software creation
- Start-up formation
The Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest Centre does everything in its power to foster scientific "catalysis". As such, it is involved in a number of technology development actions, including the development of a platform dedicated to high performance computing: PlaFRIM.
