The Grenoble model: My lunch with Jean-Charles and other stories

Abstract:
Jean-Charles' goal for Minatec and the entire regional network of technology clusters is ambitious but quite realistic: to be one of the top 10 nanoscience and technology sites on the planet. He really wants a good business model, one that will "ensure the long-term validity of the center," so he has visited many other global tech sites to find out what makes them tick and learn from their experiences. "What will be the best model for the future?" he asked, noting differences and similarities between Minatec and IMEC, Albany Nano, and others. One differentiator is Minatec's insistence on interested companies to not just participate in the center but to "bring something to the community," in terms of investment, jobs, and ideas.
