Facilitating access to R&D for all companies to enable them to remain competitive in an increasingly fast-changing world is the mission that
Carnot have been leading since 2006. Today, the Carnot network carries out 55% of the R&D financed by companies to public research, i.e. more than 10,200 R&D contracts per year. These partnerships have been the source of major innovations, benefiting companies of all sizes and from a wide range of sectors.

In 2020 the Carnot network has launched a virtual showroom to look back on 15 years of innovation. In 2021 CALYM is proud to participate in the Health section with a focus on the Lymphoma Data Hub.
