Hugues Metras has succeeded the soon-to-retire Michel Wolny as director of IRT Nanoelec. Metras came from Leti, where he was in charge of strategic international partnerships.
Metras’ arrival coincides with the start of Phase 2 of IRT Nanoelec’s development plan. IRT Nanoelec’s business model will evolve as government funding for its projects decreases. The next IRT Nanoelec roadmap, for the 2021-2025 period, will focus on three main applications: images, energy conversion, and digital trust. IRT Nanoelec’s objective is to develop, for each application, partnerships upstream and downstream from the electronic components to strengthen the ties between the technologies developed and their market applications.
