The innovation competitions

The French government has created innovation competitions in conjunction with Bpifrance and ADEME. They form a continuum of support and funding that stimulates links between research and entrepreneurship at three key moments: i-PhD encourages the entrepreneurial vocation of doctoral students, i-Lab the creation of technology-intensive companies, and i-Nov development projects led by startups and SMEs.

I am a researcher who wishes to reveal the full potential of my research results

The i-PhD competition is open to PhD students who will be defending their thesis during the year of the competition or PhDs who have been defending for less than three years. The competition is open to any project to develop an innovative technology developed in a research laboratory that could lead to the creation of a startup with a strong competitive advantage.


I am an innovative project leader who wants to boost the creation of his startup

The i-Lab competition is aimed at project leaders of companies that have not yet been created or that are less than 2 years old, in a technology-intensive sector. The competition is aimed at innovation projects led by young companies or that could lead to the creation of a company in the short term and whose technical, economic and legal feasibility has been established.


I am an innovative startup or SME that wishes to finance a high-potential R&D project

The i-Nov competition concerns startups and SMEs with ambitious research, development and innovation projects. The projects concerned are research, development and innovation projects with a total cost of between €600,000 and €5 million and a duration of 12 to 36 months.
