The EcoMarch center for the design of architectured materials will open its doors in 2018 on the Saint-Martin d’Hères campus. The center is destined to become one of Europe’s leading hubs for eco-effi cient materials design. And, like MINATEC, it will build strong synergies between education, research, and industry, most notably via technology transfer. The center’s innovative materials architecture and characterization platforms will leverage resources spread across several facilities and will provide space for new equipment.
Grenoble Institute of Technology is spearheading the center, which will operate under the Grenoble-Alpes University banner. Two Phelma programs located on the Saint- Martin d’Hères campus will be directly involved (Electrochemistry and Processes for Energy and Environmental Engineering; and Materials Science and Engineering) as will two fl agship Grenoble Institute of Technology materials science labs, SIMAP and LEPMI.
