The purpose of this program is to encourage research actors to create new structured partnerships through the creation of "Joint Laboratories" between a SME or an intermediate-sized enterprise and a research laboratory. A Joint Laboratory is defined by the signing of a contract defining its operation, including:

  • A common governance,
  • A roadmap for research and innovation activities,
  • Resources to operate the roadmap,
  • A strategy to ensure the value creation from the research activities.

Activities funded by the program will focus on the construction stage of the Joint Laboratory and initial research operations.
