The third conference of the National Technological Research Institute (IRT) network was held on October 13, 2015 at MINATEC. Hosted by Grenoble’s IRT Nanoelec, the day provided an opportunity to review the latest advances in digital transformation, healthcare, transportation, materials, and processes. Participants started with a tour of the IRT Village, where the eight IRTs showed off their latest projects at shared booths and platforms. Cooperation between the IRTs and international relations, deemed crucial for the future, played a key role at the conference. And the event brought good news in terms of funding. Thierry Mandon, Minister of State for Research, announced that the government’s third economic stimulus package for 2016–2019 would continue to support the IRTs, providing a supplement to private-sector funding and ensuring a bright and sustainable future for the IRTs.
