CEREGE provides the academic and industrial scientific community with a range of high-tech resources. It hosts four facilities financed by the "Investissements d'Avenir" programmes.
"The Future Investment Programme (PIA)The French government has set up a new investment fund, the "Secrétariat général pour l'investissement" (SGPI), to finance innovative and promising investments in France in order to increase its growth and employment potential.
From the emergence of an idea to the market launch of a new product or service, the AIP intervenes throughout the entire innovation life cycle and provides a link between public research and the business world.
The PIA is based on a double principle of leverage and risk sharing: the State's investment in an innovation project is most often co-financed by private or public partners.
Since the launch of the PIA, the State has co-financed several thousand projects to prepare the future.
