Entrepreneurs of the future: from research to business creation

The "Inria entrepreneurs of the future" are being exhibited on the railings of the French Ministry for Higher Education and Research from 14 June to 7 July 2016. Come and discover - or rediscover - the photo exhibition!

The "Entrepreneurs of the future" exhibition, to mark the 30th anniversary of Inria's business creation in 2015, shows, in pictures, the entrepreneurial dynamism of Inria researchers seeking to transform their research findings into concrete innovations that are of immediate benefit to society. This exhibition implicitly reminds us of the central role played by the creation of innovative companies in the institute's technology and expertise transfer policy.
The series brings together portraits of researchers and engineers who have embarked on an entrepreneurial adventure, whatever the status of their project (idea, beginning, first steps...) and the area of application of their technology (health, software engineering, transport...).   

The pictures were taken by the photographer Éric Garault . Examining man's place in his environment, he is particularly fond of discovering and understanding the world around him, through the eyes of a portraitist and reporter.

From 14 June to 7 July 2016, these 17 "Entrepreneurs of the future" portraits will be exhibited on the railings of the Ministry for Higher Education and Research, 1 rue Descartes, Paris Ve. They are awaiting your visit!
