In late March, Schneider Electric and the Grenoble Institute of Technology Partners Foundation co-founded an industrial chair of excellence for plastronics. The MINT Chair will be endowed with a budget of more than €450,000. Researchers from Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Pagora and Phelma schools as well as from labs LGP2 and IMEP-LaHC will be involved in research under the chair. A research scientist has been hired and additional recruitments will follow.
Schneider Electric will leverage the research conducted under the chair to develop wireless communications capabilities for its products. The research will focus on innovative electronic component printing processes on thermoplastic substrates. The chair program will also include conferences and training courses to ensure the new knowledge created is disseminated.
