The NanoAndes school has been held every year since 2010. This November, a new school, MEMS-AL, will kick off in Bogota. Research scientists from Leti and Grenoble-Alpes University will teach students the basics of MEMS, IoT, and Big Data over the five days of the session. NanoAndes, held in Buenos Aires, will cover nanomaterials and nanostructures for energy and healthcare.
Both schools, set up to disseminate Grenoble’s scientific know-how and strengthen the city’s ties with Latin America, have earned the backing of big-name partners: MEMS-AL is funded in part through the IDEX instrument of the French government’s economic stimulus package, while NanoAndes is backed by the CNRS, the CEA, and Fondation Nanoscience. It is hoped that these schools will fuel student and faculty exchange programs and research partnerships.
