Since its launch in 2007, the FATTE+ program has been supporting collaboration in the field of Technology Transfer through sharing best practices between experts in both countries and project funding.
Since its launch in 2007, the France-USA Technology Transfer Exchange Program (FATTE) has been in operation thanks to the C.U.R.I.E. network and the Office for Science and Technology of the Embassy of France in the United States (Boston section). Around twenty visits to the United States have been organized through this program for French technology transfer managers coming from various sectors (universities, research organizations, etc.) working on or starting collaborative projects while developing an international mindset.
During the academic year 2011-2012, a change in the program was introduced. Now called FATTE+, the program is more comprehensive and bilateral. Project selection criteria are now based on the bilateral aspect of the proposal: the selected projects will be the ones building a real long term exchange between the two countries, and helping to promote the French research sector in the United States. FATTE+ also supports any project in TT activity, research commercialization, etc., not just human capital oriented projects as before.
Projects will be selected from candidates:
Having several years of experience in TT
Having 1 or 2 years professional experience in TT
Having professional experience in the private sector and beginning a career in TT.
