Abstract: The authors think that the relative autonomy which university professors enjoy may have drawn some independent inventors towards academia, where they were able to set up a laboratory and invent freely. This is the case of Jean-Charles Bernier, professor at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal (EPM), a prime example of an inventor who managed to create himself a space devoted to invention in a university.
