Discover the many facets of MINATEC in four days and twenty events

MINATEC Crossroads’10 from June 21 to 24, 2010 in Grenoble, France

Grenoble, France | Posted on June 8th, 2010

MINATEC Crossroads'10, France's leading micro and nanotechnology event, is expected to bring in more than 800 visitors. The conference, to be held from June 21 to 24 in Grenoble, will offer a full program of some twenty lectures, meetings, and workshops. Participants will have an opportunity to discover the many facets of MINATEC, from fundamental and applied research, teaching, and technology transfer to the innovation campus' ties with society and the arts.

Keynote address by Claudie Haigneré

MINATEC Crossroads'10 will attract speakers and visitors from around the globe. Japan is expected to be especially well-represented at the event. Notable participants include the heads of major innovation clusters in the United States, Korea, Japan, and Germany and historian Théodore Zeldin.

A free keynote address on the interactions between science and society will be given at 6:30 p.m. on June 22 by Claudie Haigneré, former French Research Minister and current President of Universcience*.

A la carte program

Researchers, professionals from industry, educators, and decision makers attending the event can put together their own à la carte program from the broad range of talks, meetings, and workshops on offer. The Léti Annual Review by France's leading micro and nanotechnology research lab, competitive cluster Minalogic's presentation on healthcare applications for micro and nanotechnologies, and Grenoble Ecole de Management's session on disseminating and commercializing nanotechnologies are expected to be particularly popular. Three free lectures open to the general public will be offered on the afternoons of June 22, 23, and 24.

A sampling of the three days of workshops, presentations and panel discussions includes discussions of:

· Innovative memory technologies

· Nanostructures for clinical diagnosis and therapy

· Leti's 12th annual review of its micro- and nanotechnology programs and partnerships

· The Grenoble School of Management's session on commercializing nanotechnologies

· observatoryNANO Symposium: scientific and socio-economic developments, ethical and societal considerations and potential environmental, health and safety issues of nanotechnology, and Micro- and nanotechnologies for healthcare

* France's national science education agency, formed when science museums Cité des Sciences and Palais de la Découverte merged
