AIM fosters Innovation through a technology transfer mechanism which goal is to value the results generated by its Research Centers. On a systematic basis, the opportunity of licensing intellectual property with corporate partners, creating applied models that could be implemented into tools and digital applications, or any kind of product development will be investigated. Those innovation actions will involve the researchers who want to value their research, but also the students as well as external managers and entrepreneurs who want to build products or incorporate startups based on the research outputs.

Close collaborations between AIM and the Innovation and IT departments will be initiated. New methodologies, new processes and new tools generated by the Institute will be tested and, when relevant, integrated in the school’s IT infrastructure to improve it, to optimize it or to differentiate it with new services. emlyon business school’s Ed Job Tech Accelerator can also help new-born startups to grow and get in touch with the school’s wider ecosystem.
