BT2i has accompanied several times the Carnot MICA Institute for the past four years. We appreciate their skills in innovation strategy and project management. The quality of their strategic analysis and their professionalism in coaching, Client listening, their ability to manage a group around an innovation project in a constrained time, the conviviality of the relationships were key factors that led to the successes of our projects.
Lionel LIMOUSY, Director
IRT-M2P, Institute for Materials, Metallurgy and Process Technology Research was created in 2013. Our core business is the management of R & D projects and the creation of technological platforms. The first step of a project always involves a technical and scientific watch that we entrust to specialists such as BT2i. These studies are essential for defining the objectives of our projects by providing a comprehensive strategic and scientific analysis. We particularly appreciate the quality and relevance of the information provided by these Technology Intelligence professionals. TWatch Multi-Clients Programs are also very relevant and allow us a regular watch.
Pascal LAMESLE, Scientific & Technical Director
Crossing technological and strategic dimensions, BT2i’s mission provided us with qualitative decision-making support adapted to our needs. Consultants experienced in Research & Innovation issues and a rigorous methodological approach have enabled this result.
Laurent EBNER, Marketing Strategy & Industrial Partnerships Officer
Linksium is a technology transfer company working with all the research centers in the French Alps. In the field of innovative materials, we have asked BT2i to perform an international survey on this specific commercialization. They have studied the key success and failure factors in the case of 20 licensed technologies to industrial groups or start-ups at an international scale. This formalisation is an efficient guide to improve the technology transfer.
Stephan PÉDÈCHE, Technology Transfer Project Manager, Greentech & Materials
For ArcelorMittal, it is essential to have a technology watch activity to anticipate the processes of the future, the new markets, the needs, the actors, the possible partners and consider if it is strategic to transfer certain emerging technologies for steel-based processes. BT2i is a key partner in the field of technology watch which allows us to collect, select, exploit and transform some of this information into opportunities for innovation projects.
Didier VERCHERE, Expert Researcher Organic Coatings, Global R&D
We have used BT2i several times, on transversal topics using technologies that are not directly linked to the animal health business. Each time, BT2i was able to identify relevant tracks that have advanced our thinking. We particularly appreciated the methodological rigor, the respect of deadlines and expected deliverables brought by the BT2i team.
Laurent MOGENET, Business Intelligence Director
The Aliaxis Corporate Research and Innovation Center has been collaborating with BT2i over the past 2 years in different domains. The precision and quality of the watch programs provided by BT2i offered a positive impact on the Research and Innovation programs. We were able to identify and connect directly with the key stakeholders in the society of Research & Innovation.
Jose TEIXERA PINTO, Program Manager
BT2i is a great tool for technology watch and partnership development to expand internal R & D and answer our well-targeted topics in the field of surface treatments and coatings. Their support is a very rich source of information to identify innovative products and / or industrial processes that need to be developed.
Sam POURCHER, Managing Director
Marc-Henri Ménard’s TechWatch activities and his expert network which have been in place for more than 30 years, allow him to impose himself as an operational player in the field of Research and Innovation in Europe. I have used his expertise and he has largely contributed to the creation of added value for our Company by his ability to guide us in all the steps starting from new technology to the innovation introduced in its market.
Pascale SANSONETTI, CEO
I met Marc-Henri Ménard in the 1980’s. He played a major role in the introduction of technology watch in France and already had most major French companies as clients ; relying on a network of international correspondents, his team supplied them with technical, scientific and marketing intelligence. Thanks to him, I found a product that did not exist in France and we were able to open a new market. Since then, our SME has a real culture of innovation.
Serge BRESIN, CEO
Our collaboration with BT2i is a continuation of the one we had previously with Innovation 128. The TWatch programs operated by BT2i are the complement of the technology watch we carry out internally on various topics, with, in addition, the opportunity to meet experts from different industrial sectors and discuss with them topics of mutual interest.
Victor ZARIFE, R&I Program Manager
Rte is the French Transmission System Operator, responsible of a 100,000 km High Voltage network. We have been working with BT2i for several years in industrial and academic monitoring activities. We appreciate their seriousness and professionalism. In particular, they supported us in the search for academic partners on various topics such as live works. In addition, the TWatch shared monitoring program on common topics is an excellent idea.
Serge BLUMENTAL, Assets Management & Maintenance Program Director
Naval Group particularly appreciates the monthly TWatch WowNotes, both for the pre-sorting of information, but also for the relevance of the information delivered, notably by the mention of impacting patents. Moreover, since the requirement specification is shared with several industrial contractors, the TWatch approach offers an opening to themes not always identified initially. Finally, we very much appreciate the TwatchDays during which the presentation and restitution of the work done, in presence of all other Members.
Béatrice ADAM, Partnerships Manager, Open Innovation
The business & technology intelligence that BT2i is able to deliver are of great value for TOTAL. The multiclient TWatch programs allows us to scrutinize emerging fields at competitive prices while their ad hoc customized studies are well developed, documented and illustrated thanks to an efficient interaction with the BT2i teams.
