CEA initiates the first French nanobiotech cluster in Grenoble

Grenoble, France | September 27, 2005

CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission) the major European Technological Research Organisation, announces the creation of the first French nanobiotechnology cluster. The official launch was made on September 9th with the signature of a real estate operation dedicated to host new equipments and research teams in Grenoble close to the Minatec facilities.

The new cluster, called NanoBio, gathers three research partners: University Joseph Fourier, Hospital of La Tronche and CEA. A first phase is going to be funded by local authorities (Metropolitan Area of Grenoble, Rhone-Alpes Region, Isere Department and City of Grenoble) for a total amount of 23,5 M€. NanoBio will bring together engineers, physicists, chemists, biologists and medical doctors to develop new miniaturised tools for biological and medicine applications: biochips, lab-on-chips, biosensors… These tools will be used for medical diagnosis, food safety control, environmental monitoring, etc.

The aim of NanoBio is to foster the technological and economical development in the bioengineering field, taking advantage of the CEA’s 10-years experience in biochips and bioMEMS research. NanoBio is created in synergy with Minatec, the 1st European innovation Centre for micro and nanotechnology. It will also work in deep connection with Lyon Biopole, a major biotech cluster dedicated to diagnosis and vaccines.

Instigator of both Minatec and NanoBio projects, the CEA is internationally acknowledged for its research in micro and nanotechnologies for life sciences. LETI (Laboratory of Electronics and Information Technologies) has dedicated a full department (120 persons) to micro and nanotechnologies for biology and healthcare, and conducts research projects aimed at technology transfer.

Since 2004, the CEA leads the Nano2Life European network of excellence, gathering 23 partners in 12 countries and more than 200 scientists. Supported by the European Commission, Nano2Life is intended to establish the first steps towards an European Institute of Nanobiotechnology.
