Salvatore Spinello

I work at Inria, a public research institute specialising in computer science and applied mathematics. My job is to facilitate the "transfer" of the results of research and to make them more easily "usable" by society and businesses.

I form links between two far removed worlds.

Firstly, I help researchers to put projects together and negotiate collaboration contracts with industry. I alert them to "utilisation" solutions other than the publication of scientific articles, such as patent submission, the dissemination of free software and the formation of innovative companies.

Secondly, thanks to Inria's national network, I visit French industries directly to see what their issues and needs are, and report back to Bordeaux. The objective is to stimulate research and innovation in our laboratories and consolidate the competitiveness of companies.
