From March 2, 2021 to April 9, 2021

PULSALYS is launching a Call for Expressions of Interest for researchers, engineers and staff from the Lyon and Saint-Étienne sites’ public research laboratories.

This call for expressions of interest aims to source new projects to invest in priority research subjects for France.

The end result, for the selected projects, will be to provide support and funding through the first stages of development in order to transform these inventions into marketable solutions, either by transferring them to an industrial company or by creating a startup.


Projects will be evaluated and selected based on the following criteria:

  • Appropriate human resources/projects;
  • Technological maturity and originality of the project;
  • Market suitability of the proposal;
  • Intellectual Property*.

*The results of the research must be eligible for patent registration or an Intellectual Property (IP) strategy
