START@SystemX: collective intelligence as a driving force for R&D
With the conviction that research and development processes must involve all digital innovation stakeholders, SystemX and Cap Digital have decided to work together as part of the START@SystemX programme. This initiative, the only one of its kind in France, is spearheaded by the SystemX technological research institute and will bring together startups, academic researchers and manufacturers to carry out ambitious joint research projects that will form the basis of tomorrow’s innovative services.
SystemX called on the business clusters in its ecosystem, in particular Cap Digital, to approach startups likely to be interested in applying to join the programme. The startups realised at a very early stage that the START@SystemX programme represents an opportunity for them to bring their technology and expertise to the attention of major corporate innovation departments.
