Your research results have a practical potential? Tec21 finances internships on proof of concept

In order to facilitate the detection of innovation in its laboratories, and help the researchers take the first steps into the maturation and the valorisation of their research results, Tec 21 has launched a call for POC proposals.


The call is open to researchers from any of the 7 partner laboratories who wish to validate some key technical elements of an application-oriented technology arising from their research.


The aim of these internships are:

  • to validate the technical feasability of a new concept,
  • to reinforce the scientific demonstration of an innovative process or technology prio to further actions towards industry or innovation funding agencies.

The call for proposals is open on an ongoing basis and the proposals can be submitted at any time.
