Detroit, Mich.; Saclay, France; San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
CEA LIST Institute recently signed a membership agreement with the AutoHarvest Foundation to accelerate product development and innovation by providing access to advanced technologies and resources developed in France. CEA LIST has populated the AutoHarvest e-collaboration marketplace with postings describing licensable technologies in the areas of:
- Robotics & advanced manufacturing
- Embedded systems
- Augmented & virtual reality
- Software tools
- Multimodal interfaces
- Intelligent/ubiquitous sensor networks
- Data mining and analytics
- Digital & interactive tools for products and processes design
- Non-destructive testing
In addition, CEA LIST institute is displaying research capabilities and resources available for collaboration with other research and development organizations, large and small, in the area of advanced manufacturing that are part of the AutoHarvest ecosystem.
CEA LIST institute supports its industrial partners competitiveness through innovation and technological transfer. To date, it has formed innovation partnerships with more than 100 companies, mainly in Europe. CEA LIST is expanding its footprint in the U.S. and will use the AutoHarvest’s online platform to match technology needs with innovative solutions developed by its network of R&D teams and innovative spin-offs.
“CEA LIST institute, Autosar Premium Member, has been providing companies with a very large panel of compliant technologies for 4 years. We hope that through AutoHarvest, we’ll be able to enlarge and accelerate this action for smarter manufacturing processes,“ says Karine GOSSE, CEO of CEA LIST Institute.
AutoHarvest operates an intellectual property e-collaboration marketplace, that offers direct access on a principal to principal basis between innovators and commercializers -- from grassroots inventors in the garage to corporate and government sized titans -- to commercially share technology ideas and resources. “AutoHarvest is delighted that CEA LIST is contributing important technologies, resources and talent to our global innovation ecosystem,” says Jayson D. Pankin, president and CEO of AutoHarvest. “Tomorrow’s breakthrough solutions and products often are the fruit of unlikely alliances among disparate parties, who come together through open innovation mechanisms, such as AutoHarvest, making serendipity routine."
The partnership is facilitated by PRIME, the US subsidiary of the Paris Region Economic Development Agency that represents CEA LIST technologies in the US.
“We are convinced that collaboration and open innovation are essential for industries to remain at the cutting-edge of innovation. Through this partnership between CEA LIST and AutoHarvest, we want to make the best of French technologies and innovations available to U.S. companies,” says Xavier Wartelle, General Manager at PRIME.
