Paris Brain Institute – ICM, now the largest facility dedicated to translational neuroscience in Europe, has set up an incubator: iPEPS – The Healthtech Hub. This new structure benefits from the presence, in the same ecosystem, of researchers, clinicians, and companies, and hopes to become a gas pedal for research and the development of new therapies.
In addition to real support given to the young companies in terms of accompaniment and logistics, the incubator proposes office space, laboratories, open space, meeting rooms in more than 2 500 m2; it also offers the use of the advanced technological platforms in the central part of the building, facilitating interactions.
iPEPS not only houses companies that are developing new therapeutic agents but also those specialized in medical technologies, as for example EEG headsets reading the electrical activity of the brain. The structure also hosts start-ups developing new diagnostic procedures so that patients can be treated sooner, or tools for “connected health”, like video games that help the elderly maintain their autonomy… There again, openness is a source of potential partnerships and creativity at the service of patients.
