A spin-off initiative of the Technology Transfer Office of France's Ecole Polytechnique, PRESANS connects industrial technology needs to a professional network of experts and researchers. It works in three steps:
- Translate: the PRESANS scientific committee, composed of senior R&D specialists, translates the industrial need into a scientific problem (challenge).
- Broadcast: this challenge is then broadcast to the global network of experts.
- Connect: finally the author of the best proposal or solution receives the reward or is connected to the client.
PRESANS is currently working with several industrial clients to start tackling R&D challenges in the near future.
