Leti Fosters Technological Innovation with SMEs

Leti creates value through technological innovation for all types of businesses in a variety of fields. It has successfully transferred its technologies and know-how to numerous SMEs of all sizes (SOHOs, SMEs, and middle market companies).

Helping small and medium-sized enterprises innovate through R&D differs from working with larger groups.
These companies must operate and develop with more focus on managing risk. They must clearly identify and understand their needs within the context of their own constraints, taking into account technical and technological aspects as well as financial concerns, return on investment, intellectual property, human aspects, etc.
R&D contracts drawn up between an SME and Leti must precisely meet these needs, and specify deadlines for delivering the technological demonstrator, the object of the contract.
After updating its methods, practices, tools, and organization, today Leti is in a position to help SMEs surmount the challenges that face them. It has also mastered the use of financing tools to facilitate SMEs' access to innovation. This expertise enables Leti to efficiently contribute to and innovate SMEs within tight time frames.

Over the last few years, Leti’s participation in fostering technological innovation within SMEs has continued to increase, and now represents a significant portion of its activity in terms of the number of industrial partnerships. 

The technical and economic success of this approach has been proven through numerous examples of collaboration, in different fields, that have resulted in SMEs integrating and marketing technological innovations.
