G2E Lab research director and magnetic microsystems expert Orphée Cugat will receive the CNRS (France’s national center for scientific research) innovation medal on December 12. “The award is being given in my name, but it is the result of the work of an entire team,” said Cugat, who hopes that the win will draw attention to the work being done at his lab. Most notably, Cugat and his team contributed to the design and development of products commercialized by MagIA (a portable and ultra-rapid immunological testing kit for infectious diseases) and Enerbee (an energy harvesting system). Cugat is co-founder and scientific advisor to both startups but remains committed to his career as a CNRS researcher. “Our work is at the crossroads of several disciplines and is at scales that are favorable to magnetic forces—an area in which innovation knows no limits.”
