    • Integration of the Phenotic platform into the European EPPN2020 network.

    • 2 "LabCom projects" (common laboratories between an academic laboratory and an SME) funded by the National Agency for Research :

    David Guilet (SONAS laboratory, Angers University) and Pierre Chicoteau (NORFEED company)

    • 3 companies-research days co-organised with VEGEPOLYS.
    • 10 industrial PhD fellowships submitted, 5 ongoing.

    • 15 innovative results detected and oriented towards valorisation procedures (patents, maturations, collaborations).
