Test his prototype in real conditions, before his marketing, or experimenting with adaptation from a digital product or service to a new market: through this call for projects, the Region seeks to encourage Breton digital SMEs to associate with other structures (companies, associations, communities ...) to promote the achievement of experimental projects and their emergence.

Whether they are innovative solutions in telecom, broadcast / multimedia, software, electronics, connected objects, optics / photonics, smart grids or content production,
these innovative products and services will have to be experienced
in one or more of the priority sectors identified in the Glaz Economy.
Projects may register, in particular, in structuring Breton programs, led by Brittany Innovation Development, at the crossroads of
and channels: cybersecurity, AgreTIC (agriculture), smart-grids (energy), offshore racing. 

The project, lasting up to 24 months, will have be led by a consortium composed, at a minimum, an SME based in Brittany (project leader)
and an "experimenter". If it is possible to associate non-Breton partners or "experimenters", only structures located in Brittany will be able to receive financial support from the Region. All projects will be accompanied by one of the 7 technopoles breton in their assembly and their followed.
