The technology scouting operation with the SATT network was initiated in consultation with Bpifrance. This collaboration has given us full satisfaction! Indeed, this represents more than 50 technologies identified of which 14 were the subject of a detailed presentation. The successful exchanges with the different SATTs also stimulated the innovation of the different SPIE Batignolles units!
