Established on a trial basis in April 2015, InriaTECH is a new initiative set up by the Inria Lille Research Centre to transfer technology from its research teams to businesses in the Hauts-de-France region. These new digital technologies are a key factor in the creation of added value, innovation and jobs. This initiative forms part of French Tech, a movement set up to encourage the growth of start-up companies.

A culture of sharing and sociability

Since its creation, the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research centre has participated in or organised events for the general public with the aim of promoting sciences and giving an insight into its research work. Work placements, open days, visits to schools: life at the centre is punctuated by events through which scientists are committed to sharing knowledge. In this way, Inria hopes to promote the image of dynamic, rich and accessible research in the Hauts-de-France region.
