Development of know-how:
a rise in power through actions staggered over time
- respond to calls for projects for academic partners like ANR, European projects, international projects (Connect Talent),
- integrate national (Aviesan) and European networks (Eatris),
- respond to calls for projects for academic and industrial partners such as MATWIN, FUI and PSPC,
- involve industrials in the governance of the IRON Labex and in the co-financing of dedicated staff for the IRON Labex,
- develop or create partnerships with national or European competitiveness clusters:
- Atlanpole Biotherapies, a national competitiveness cluster, is already a partner of the IRON Labex.It is the only competitiveness cluster that includes Radiopharmaceuticals among its missions. It is committed to supporting the Labex IRON valorization project through the Isotop4Life consortium launched in 2012, communication support for the IRON Labex and the establishment of the national radiopharmaceutical sector. Atlanpole Biotherapies is represented on the Labex IRON strategic committee.

- The creation of partnerships with European competitiveness clusters such as BioWin will be facilitated thanks to Atlanpole Biotherapies which is a member of CEBR (Council of European BioRegions).
- promote the development of products that are transferable and recoverable through:
- Market research by specialized firms (funding: Atlanpole Biotherapies),
