Managing scientific patenting in French research organizations (1916-1951)

Abstract : The relationship between French public research and industrial property is ambivalent and the state is currently trying to influence this relationship by encouraging public scientific institutions, including universities, to apply for more patents This article proposes a genealogy of this complex relationship, focused on the analysis of the role of key institutions. These include the Department of Inventions, the Agency for Scientific and Industrial Research and Inventions (ONRSII), the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). The influence of major figures such as Paul Langevin or Frédéric Joliot-Curie is also detailed. The analysis highlights the interdependence of French scientific strategies and industrial property practices from the turning point of World War I.
