Start
The INPI has just issued its 2017 prize list of patent applicants in France: After occupying 7th place in this ranking in 2014, then 6th place in the last two years, the CNRS has reached 5th place this time, with 405 patent applications counted (an increase of 8.6 % in one year).
 
The CNRS is a key player in innovation in France and around the world. The valorization of research, the second mission entrusted by the State to the CNRS, ensures the dissemination of scientific progress to society. Innovation is based on the scientific excellence of laboratories in fruitful interaction with industrial players. Every year, this original model generates inventions, technologies and startups for the benefit of national wealth.
Innovation is born in the CNRS laboratories in contact with fundamental research. More than 1,400 startups have been created since 1999 as a result of the work carried out there. And the researchers filing more and more patents make the CNRS the second largest public organization in France. most innovative in the world (according to the Scimago ranking) .
 
Thanks to its proactive policy, the CNRS supports the emergence of breakthrough innovations that germinate in laboratories. It was the first research organization to create a department dedicated to the valorization of scientific results. In partnership with a wide range of players, it plays a key role in the French innovation ecosystem.
