The intersectorial methodology of OLIMPIA is ensured by the high industrial involvement in the project. Thus, two of the network participants are industrial organizations of different sizes, countries and sectors: electronic and light emitting devices and photodetectors (ETC, large industrial multinational) and for expertise in translating neurobiological knowledge at small medium enterprise level (HISTOCELL, SME). Industrial partners will be directly involved in the training of researchers through individual projects and offering secondments.
They will actively participate in the complementary training programme and will ensure the exploitation of research results according to their specific technical and business expertises. Indeed,the exploitation potential of the approaches and technologies developed will be constantly monitored and specific exploitation plans will be adopted in case of recognized application potential.
