Floralis works with researchers and industrial partners throughout each stage of the implementation of a research contract, from the "matching phase" where industrial partners and laboratories are introduced, through to the negotiating stage and the drafting of contracts.
A "one-stop shop" for companies wishing to develop relationships with leading Grenoble-based laboratories, Floralis initially introduces industrial and academic partners at the start of the collaborative process. Such meetings take place at UGA laboratories, giving industrial partners the opportunity to examine the laboratory's technical infrastructure as well as meet key players in the research team.
Floralis will put in place a specific contract for every industrial collaboration:
Furthermore, Floralis is able to co-ordinate, in conjunction with a UGA scientific manager, joint collaborations in which at least one industrial partner and UGA laboratory (but potentially more) are partners. Such collaboration will take place from the project's inception through to the final phases of the project. These industrial development projects can be carried out as part of national (eg ANR) or European (PCRD6 - PCDR7 - MEDEA - Eureka etc).
In the case of European projects, Floralis works in close collaboration with a variety of key European Agencies to ensure that they are effectively managed at all times.
