ICM offers its research teams the possibility to benefit from the "Carnot Maturation" funds, in order to reinforce the claims of the patents' applications or to validate an assumption, which could lead to a patent application.
The Carnot Maturation funds allow to finance for recruitments and purchase of consumables or small equipment.
- 20-30 k€ when the patent's application is already filed,
- 10-15 k€ for the development of a project before an application.
- Clinical projects can exceptionally receive a funding superior to 30K€.
- Projects will be funded for a period of one year (maximum).
Over 60 projects have been funded so far. There are 3-4 call for projects, launched each year.
