To help achieve these important objectives, we have implemented an Innovation & Societystrategy built on three main pillars:
- An Open Innovation Program that promotes a multi-faceted approach to innovation incorporating technological, industrial, societal, cultural, and design considerations
- An Atelier Arts-Sciences studio that combines research, education, and community outreach through innovative projects at the crossroads of technology and the creative arts
- A Community Outreach program offering a broad range of activities including a lecture series, a Web 2.0 portal, and the MINATEC Visitors Center—all in association with our science education and innovation partners
We also host a series of educational programs for budding innovators through our Nano@school program run in conjunction with the local school board, local government agencies, and the French National Education System’s community of educators.
