TESTIMONIALS FROM PROGRAMME MEMBRES
« The way CITEPH pools resources enables us to support more innovative projects. In addition, CITEPH is a true facilitator to build trustworthy exchanges between sponsors and with project leaders. It efficiently manages the various steps and gives a useful legal framework to set up projects.
For instance, in 2020 we are funding two CITEPH projects (at around 15% both) because they both demonstrate a high potential of technological breakthrough in their field: we help SPOTLIGHT EARTH to implement a low operational constraints geophysical technology tested in an underground storage facility of our affiliate Storengy, and ADV TECH to develop a pre-series of a new vertical wind mill technology. »
