Paris-Saclay incubates startup businesses, and enterprises stationed there are able to evaluate commercial feasibility for startups' innovations and marketability, Herve said. Paris-Saclay focuses on five areas: ICT technologies; healthcare; energy efficiency; aerospace, defense and security; mobility services, Herve said.
