3 questions to Chloé Marchive
Chloé Marchive

Since May 2015, Chloé Marchive is a business developer for partnership and innovation for the Saclay Plant Sciences LabEx, financially supported by the 3BCar Carnot Institute and the SPS LabEx. She works within the different teams that form the SPS LabEx.

1) Can you tell us about your professional background?

After my education in cell biology and physiology at the University of Bordeaux, I got interested in plant science in Master 2, during which I studied transcriptional regulation in grapevine. In 2006, I obtained my PhD thanks to my research work on transcription factors regulating grapevine defense mechanisms.

I moved to the US to do a first postdoc at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, at Cornell University in David Stern lab, to work on basic plant molecular science, by studying the post-transcriptional control of chloroplast gene expression in Arabidopsis. That experience was very rich at the scientific and cultural level but I really wanted to pursue my career in France.

In 2009, I came to IJPB in Versailles. I first worked, as a postdoc, in parallel with Anne Krapp and Christian Meyer, respectively on the characterization of a major regulator of nitrate signaling and metabolism and on the control of hypocotyl growth through cell wall modifications in Arabidopsis. Then I integrated Loic Lepiniec’s lab for three years, under the supervision of Sébastien Baud, to characterize protein partners of WRI1, a transcriptional regulator of fatty acids metabolism during seed development. I have always been fascinated by deciphering molecular mechanisms of major plant biological processes.

However, since a few months, I moved to another kind of activities while still working close to the SPS LabEx research groups. I am now in charge of studying and developing the potentiality of partnership to be established between academic labs and private companies.

2)  How do we move from the bench to innovation?

After more than 11 years at the bench, through my PhD and postdoc research projects, I had the willing to develop more communication and relationship in my work. I also wanted to work for the research community while taking more responsibilities.

To broaden the panel of my skills, I attended several trainings in project management, strategic marketing and communication and I began to interact with several actors of the private sector. So I gradually got more familiar with the socio-economic landscape related to our scientific research.

Along with this thinking, I had the opportunity to participate in the first steps of that project which aimed at promoting and improving innovation through public-private partnership for the SPS LabEx groups. These new dynamics emerging around scientific research were very exciting. And at that point, it was obvious for me to postulate for the position that I hold today.

3) In a few words, what are your tasks in the SPS laboratories and how do you plan to see them through?

My work consists in evaluating and improving the potentialities to develop partnership projects between academic research laboratories and industries. My missions cover the whole set of SPS LabEx laboratories. My work is divided in three parts.

The first one, within the SPS labs, is to inventory the scientific and technical expertise and to organize our offer in a clear way to be presented to putative private partners.

The second part, directed to private companies, consists in meeting their scientific or alliance managers to communicate about the SPS LabEx, to present our research activities and technical facilities, and eventually to identify their needs in terms of collaborative research.

Finally, my third mission is to identify, all around the whole perimeter of the LabEx, the volume of collaborative research projects which have been carried out with private partners during the  last two years and how they have been established. The aim is to evaluate the needs and the bottlenecks encountered by researchers to find the partners, to interact with them and to set up such projects.

At the end of this contract funded by 3BCAR, a study report will be established to address the needs and expectations of researchers, the potential for partnership project development throughout the SPS LabEx and how our research activities can be translated to different application areas and into the socio-economic landscape.

In a longer term, and thanks to a new project named SPInn (Saclay Plant Innovation) and benefiting from financial support from SPS for three years, our goal will be to set up a local structure dedicated to promote, facilitate and develop collaborative projects between SPS research teams and private partners for all the SPS laboratories. We aim at establishing more connections between these two worlds in order to stimulate both research and innovation. In a broader scope, the objective will be to take over the SPS LabEx activities beyond 2019. This project is also coordinated by Loïc Rajjou, Christian Meyer, Jean-Marc Seng and Emmanuelle Issakidis-Bourguet, with the support of Marie-Jeanne Sellier and Loïc Lepiniec, and conducted in interaction with the financial managers and the directors of our institutes.
