Description:
About the overall organization:

We are a global charitable foundation dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in human and animal health.
 
We support the brightest minds in biomedical research and the medical humanities. Our breadth of support includes public engagement, education and the application of research to improve health.
 
We are independent of both political and commercial interests.
 
About the Technology Transfer Division:
 
We help to bridge the gap between fundamental research and commercial application by funding applied research and development projects to a stage where they are attractive to a follow-on funder, such as venture capital firms, industry and public-private partnerships. 
 
We support a wide array of projects across a spectrum of technologies and therapeutic areas; our key criterion is that the project addresses an unfilled medical need or is an enabling tool in healthcare research and development.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for 
research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 305128
 
  ENTENTE is supported by the European Commission and coordinated by Inserm-Transfert SA
