Itinerary Researcher-Entrepreneur device (I.C.E.)

The Regional Council of Burgundy-Franche-Comté and UBFC have created the Itinerary Researcher-Entrepreneur (I.C.E.) scheme in 2019.

Through this device, the Regional Council wishes to promote the emergence of companies/organizations with high added value on the territory by identifying and professionalizing upstream researchers with a desire to join a creation project.

This approach involves financing a thesis or post-doctoral course, integrating a dual skill set of research and entrepreneurship/management.

 

The objective of the intervention are :

– to finance a course integrating a double scientific and entrepreneurial training in order to create a company/organization on the basis of high-tech, social, organizational, commercial or business model innovations;

– to encourage researchers to valorize their research or to create a company in connection with or as a result of their research work;

– to identify and develop research projects likely to be part of a high-tech entrepreneurship program.

 

A call for applications is launched each year for regional research laboratories. Two distinct paths can be financed:

– 36-month thesis program

– 12-month post-doctoral program

 

The selections are made in two phases:

– a first phase of project selection

– a second phase of selection of the candidates, before a jury made up of company managers, representatives of the academic world and representatives of structures in connection with entrepreneurship and the valorization of research.

At the end of the 1st phase of the 2022 campaign, 13 thesis projects and 3 post-doctoral projects were selected.

The hearings took place on Wednesday 8 June 2022, before a jury made up of representatives from the local economic world, the academic world, the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Regional Council, DECA-BFC and the BPI.
8 thesis grants and 2 post-doctoral grants were awarded :

TRAINING THROUGH RESEARCH AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS POSSIBLE!

To develop the culture of entrepreneurship and innovation, to bring out innovative projects useful to the development of our territory, these are the aims of the PEPITE Bourgogne Franche-Comté which is aimed at all students and doctoral students in Bourgogne Franche-Comté, whatever their field and level of training.

Awareness-raising actions, creative workshops, teamwork on virtual or real projects, meetings with entrepreneurs, reorganisation of training courses to facilitate entrepreneurial commitment, diploma courses and modules dedicated to entrepreneurship, networking with those involved in supporting and financing creation, support for female entrepreneurship… the PEPITE toolbox shows that it is possible to study and undertake!

The National Student Entrepreneur Status allows students, doctoral students and young graduates to develop an entrepreneurial project while benefiting from support within the framework of the Student Pole for Innovation, Transfer and Entrepreneurship (PEPITE).
