Grenoble’s research stakeholders
MINATEC is located in the Greater Grenoble area, France’s second largest hub for government-funded research after Paris and home to 25,000 research jobs.
The MINATEC campus brings together fundamental research labs likeINAC and FMNT plus a major technological research lab, Léti. MINATEC also cooperates with the Institut Louis Néel and RTRA, which are located nearby.
The MINATEC campus is designed to make sharing resources and know-how easy. This unique environment has spawned a number of cross-disciplinary projects, like the joint research on MRAM conducted by technology specialists and spintronics experts from Léti and researchers from start-up Crocus Technology.
The MINATEC campus is also home to research platforms bringing together teams of highly specialized researchers and state-of-the-art equipment. From fundamental research to new product development, MINATEC covers the entire research-to-industry pipeline.
MINATEC is part of the GIANT Campus, which is an alliance between the CEA, CNRS (France’s national center for scientific research), ESRF, ILL, EMBL, Grenoble Institute of Technology, Grenoble Ecole de Management, and Grenoble-Alpes University. GIANT stands out for its more than 10,000 students, more than 5,000 industrial jobs, and more than 700 patents filed each year. The campus’ mission is to conduct cutting-edge research and development to drive the emergence of solutions to three major societal challenges: communication, energy, and healthcare.
