The Incubator brings together Innovation and Entrepreneurial Ecosystems

It is an incubator governed under the French law on associations and non-profit organisations, and which federates most of the players of research, innovation and economic development of the Alpes Maritimes and the Var (please see below).

It was founded in 2001 by the Côte d’Azur and Toulon Universities as well as by Inria and is supported by the MESR and by a number of actors such as: the Sud-Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur Regional Council, the Nice-Côte d’Azur and Toulon Provence Méditerranée metropolitan areas, and the Cannes Lérins, Pays de Grasse and Sophia Antipolis conurbation communities.

As part of the development of business projects, the incubator works in a network, along with other players in the fields of innovation and entrepreneurship, such as BPIFrance, Ademe, the competitiveness clusters, the Entreprendre Networks, the IRCE, the SATT, the technology parks, the Initiative network, etc…
