IRT Nanoelec, a Technology Research Institute, was founded 18 months ago and continues to forge ahead, especially in the area of corporate partnerships. The Institute signed an agreement with Agilent Technologies this spring, and plans to further expand its network of partners in the new year.
In terms of research programs, the IRT Nanoelec is focusing heavily on connectivity for the home, transportation, and healthcare, through a two-pronged approach that allies technical innovation and user-centered development. Its researchers are looking at society’s needs and the best way to meet those needs using new connectivity technologies. For instance, one research team is working on instrumented parking garages and energy management systems for smart homes.
