For a direct impact of Fundamental Research in Markets

Quantum technologies are complex

To facilitate the transition between fundamental research at the highest level and the quantum technology market, it is necessary to simultaneously combine an advanced vision of fundamental research (Basic Research), applied research (Application Oriented Research) as well as industrial development (Industrial R&D) in a highly interconnected and agile operation which should lead to the emergence of both ambitious research projects but also potential innovative application solutions that can lead to the creation of new companies or new product opportunities.

In disruptive technologies such as quantum technologies, innovation is often hampered either by the non-availability of technological solutions allowing rapid progress of science, or by the lack of scientific results helping to remove technological barriers. This is particularly true for quantum technologies where everything needs to be done both in terms of concepts and in terms of components.

"Innovation Hub" aggregating high-level fundamental research for the launch of highly differentiated products.

NaQuiDis will be a unique hub where research projects at the highest level will be jointly developed with application as well as technological solutions. This disruptive innovation hub will bring together internationally renowned scientists, director in charge of a well-identified activity in fundamental research or in research and development in interaction with industry.

These directors will be program managers who identify the potential synergies between the actors in Nouvelle Aquitaine and the efforts to be put to help the development. They will have the capacity to launch research and development operations - by assembling research teams that they will lead directly in the research unit that will host them - or to set up projects financed by NaQuiDis and developed by other teams in the Region (industrial or academic).

Partner with us

Industry collaborations

We actively develop industrial cooperation through the implementation of agile tools such as joint laboratories and industrial chairs, the co-creation of innovative solutions and products and other innovative processes that have proven their worth. The aim is to develop products that will impact promising markets as quickly as possible.

Ecosystem collaborations

We believe in an ecosystem’s approach and work with companies in our direct surroundings, and we will take part in the French National Quantum Plan and the Quantum Flagship initiative. From Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region, we are deploying partnerships with the cluster of excellence, LaPhia, with the interdisciplinary program EUR Light Sciences & Technologies, with the TACTIC university research school in Limoges as well as with the Quantum Matter research program. Partnerships are strengthened, in particular between the LP2N, CELIA, CRPP, XLIM, IMS, LOMA, IMB, LaBRI or INRIA.

International networks

We actively participate in many scientific and business-oriented conferences, as speaker, or co-organizer. We believe that it is part of our role to support the exchange of ideas, to strengthen the international quantum communities. Quantum Excellence Industry Event, Quantum Business Europe...

Access to infrastructures

The Institut d'Optique Graduate School has been located in a 20,000 m2 building since 2011. In addition to the teaching and research areas, this building houses the Alphanov incubator and the Route des lasers and microwaves competitiveness cluster, thus extending the close links between the Institut d'Optique Graduate School and the world of innovation and providing a genuine technical platform, a crucial step in technology transfer. XLIM is a multidisciplinary research institute located on several geographical sites: in Limoges on the sites of ENSIL, Faculté des Sciences et Techniques and Ester-Technopole, in Brive on the site of IUT GEII and in Poitiers on the site of Technopole du Futuroscope.
