Easytech : Digital transformation for SMEs

Short presentation

Easytech is a technology transfer program created by IRT Nanoelec, supported by Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and operated by Minalogic. 


Minalogic Service

Provided solution to meet the needs

Easytech supports (via coaching and funding) innovative projects from SMEs who wants to integrate digital technologies coming from Research Organizations or engineering schools.

To establish trust between SME and laboratories and to answer their technical or marketing questions, we organize “Rendez-Vous Conseil”: 1 hour dedicated to the SME’s project. 

During those meetings, the program’s partners (research organizations, specialist in marketing and in digital technologies and Minalogic) will challenge the SME’s project, provide sharp advices and put the company in touch with targeted relationships. 

The program can offer three services that match three key steps in innovation process:

  1. Explore : By co-financing creativity sessions we help SMEs to find new idea of products, services or to improve their process
  2. Secure: From the functional needs of the SME, we co-finance up to 50% of a technical expertise to minimize the risk to start an expensive R&D project 
  3. Come true: Thank to the previous phases, the project has been secured. The SME can start the development of a demonstrator in partnership with a laboratory or an engineering school. We will provide subsidy (up to 50% of the R&D partner’s expenses – max 100k€) and coaching (marketing and technic) during the R&D phase.
