Quantum Leap :
This program allows SMEs and academia to develop platforms that will have a tremendous impact on biopharmaceutical research, in addition to meeting the critical needs of the industry. The program therefore aims at bringing an existing platform further while positioning it advantageously for commercialization. Budget depends on research proposal. Open all year long.
