The C.U.R.I.E. Network is at the heart of a public-private ecosystem serving economic performance and social progress.


The national network of research valorisation companies. After many years of experience sharing within the C.U.R.I.E. Network, fifteen structures linked to the largest French universities and engineering schools have decided to promote this collaboration as the national network of research valorisation companies – RENAFI.

With a common denominator, the valorisation of public research, these structures have the ambition to support innovation in their territory and to develop virtuous relations between public research and the socio-economic world.
