The Qualiment® network, labeled Carnot, is supported by INRAE and brings together laboratories and a technical center recognized for their scientific excellence and the quality of their research partnerships. They have transversal competences in food, to propose to companies a complete research offer in the field for their innovation, improvement or repositioning projects.
The objective of Carnot Qualiment® is to direct companies towards the best skills at national level to answer their innovation issues, sometimes even beyond the labelled network. Qualiment® offers the possibility to be, for its private partners, a gateway to all public research in the field of food in France.
Qualiment® offers to its private partners, whether they are SMEs, ETIs or large industrial groups, a range of cross-disciplinary skills in the field of human food. These skills allow us to propose R&D solutions to develop better produced, better constructed, better perceived and better adapted foods.
Qualiment®, in collaboration with innovation actors, identifies the key issues and research needs to anticipate future innovations. A college of companies and innovation actors validates the adequacy between the partnership research strategy carried by Qualiment® and the research needs of companies.
Researchers develop their skills and expertise through internal projects funded by Qualiment® and evaluated by a scientific board of researchers and R&D managers.
