The Y.SPOT is committed to supporting its partners (SMEs, major groups and start-ups) in their innovation projects. To this end, the CEA offers tailor-made support to ensure that it is as close as possible to the issues they face.
Innovation support typically involves one or several of these major iterative phases :
Dream : Immersion in a subject, defining a problem.
Design : Searching for solutions, defining concepts.
Do : Conception, prototyping, development.
These phases are carried out in collaboration with CEA experts, as well as academic laboratories and regional structures (SATT, incubator, etc.). In some cases, this support may inclued technology de-risking, involving the creation of proof of concept (POC) by technologists and designers among the CEA teams. This allows, for example, a preliminary verification of the proper alignment between a technological component and an application need, prior to an advanced research program.
This customized support for technological positioning is a powerful decision-making tool to design, implement, and transform SMEs’ innovation programs. By understanding their specific needs and adapting to their constraints, Y.SPOT aims to provide innovative and sustainable solutions that address the unique challenges faced by SMEs. Through a collaborative approach and by establishing partnerships with key innovation players, the teams at Y.SPOT are committed to materializing the innovative ideas of SMEs and turning them into successful products and services.
We provide you with tools and methods to support you effectively in your projects.
