Biotech breaks free... and so does tech!
Convinced that the 21st century will be the century of the citizen appropriation of the way to innovate from a DIY perspective, particularly in the field of bio-inspired technologies and cleantechnologies, he is focusing on making research and experimentation more accessible for citizens and amateurs. At "la Paillasse" people are developing cheap genetic diagnostic and creative use of biomaterials, but it won't stop at your door step... Rieul is working on democratizing the access to research and innovation in various fields, making more accessible to use technologies and for anyone to build useful low-tech at a limited cost. With a highly interdisciplinary background in engineering, research, innovation, finance and management in the fields of energy and environment (strong interaction between bio and clean), Rieul is currently starting to work on innovation management process and financing; in the meantime he is co-building "La Paillasse Saône": the first eco-hacklab bridging bio and clean.
