"5 minutes for labs to convince industrials"
the new initiative of Minalogic / to accelerate partnerships between labs and industrials from Silicon Europe
As founder and partner of Silicon Europe, Minalogic, the French global competitive cluster focusing on micro- and nano-technologies and software, invites European industrials on September 17th to discover the offers of the public R&D labs (research and education) based in Grenoble. The French cluster organizes a half-day of video speed-meetings for labs to highlight their skills and offer. Through this initiative, industrials of Silicon Europe will strengthen their knowledge of French expertise which will open the way for transnational innovative projects in energy efficient electronics.
Silicon Europe is an alliance of 4 Europe's leading micro- and nanoelectronics clusters: Minalogic (Rhône-Alpes, France), DSP Valley (Flanders, Belgium), High Tech NL (South and East Netherlands) and Silicon Saxony (Saxony, Germany), and 2 associate clusters : me2c (Austria) and Business Cluster Semiconductors (Netherlands). Launched in 2012 with the funding of the European Commission, the inter-cluster alliance supports the EU's decision to emphasize micro- and nano-technologies as a Key Enabling Technologies (KETs). Silicon Europe chases one main objective: secure Europe's position as a leading centre for energy efficient ICT in order to "boost the industrial production of innovative products and applications for the future" in line with the plan established by the DG Enterprise and Industry of the European Commission.
Created in 2005, the Minalogic global competitive cluster in Grenoble is a public/private partnership with more than 200 members dedicated to supporting integration of hardware and embedded software. Minalogic's collaborative projects are focused on developing products and services that capitalize on the potential of better combinations of micro- and nanotechnology and embedded software. The cluster encourages and supports industry research-training collaborations with companies in Europe, Asia and the U.S., while responding to the global high-tech community's need to identify new value-added services that can be integrated into existing products in health care, the environment, mobility, the media, the textile industry and other areas.
