PULSALYS: the fourth edition of the Young Researchers Program for Start-Ups gets off to a flying start

From July 20, 2020 to October 15, 2020

To further its aim of promoting research and the transfer of knowledge to civil society, PULSALYS, the Technology Transfer Acceleration Office in Lyon and Saint-Étienne, is launching the fourth edition of its program for local young doctors. This program will give them an opportunity to further develop the results from their thesis or during their post-doctorate careers for a year, while receiving funding and personalized support.

This program aims to help young doctors promote the results they generated while writing their thesis or during their post-doctorate careers, and support them in transferring these findings to an existing company or in creating a Deep Tech start-up.

The program includes three phases:

  1. Project presentation and applications for the Young Researchers Program.
  2. BootCamp: a customized program designed by PULSALYS and BEELYS, the Université de Lyon’s student incubator led by the Fondation pour l’Université de Lyon, help young researchers refine their innovation projects in accordance with their research efforts.
  3. Project development: once they have been submitted to the jury, the best projects that are in line with the associated structures’ criteria will receive guidance, support and will be launched.

The closing date for applications is October 15, 2020, at noon.
