Grenoble Ecole de Management is launching a new Winter School on Nanotechnology in collaboration with IEP - Grenoble, ESIEE-Univ Paris Est-LAST, FRIDA and supported by ANR-France*.

New Winter School on Emerging Nanotechnologies

Grenoble, France | Posted on September 9th, 2010

The aim of the winter school is to explore issues related to nanotechnologies so as to better understand possible trajectories of development of nanotechnologies in different areas: To what extent do nanotechnologies exemplify a new regime of development? To what extent social scientists may focus on nanotechnologies to renew scientific approaches in sociology, economics and management of innovation? To what extent can we transfer strategies and recommendations from biotechnology and information technologies to nanotechnologies?

Vincent Mangematin, Professor of Strategic Management of Innovation at Grenoble Ecole de Management, said: "Nanotechnology is a growing multidisciplinary field of interest for social scientists. Recognizing the tremendous scientific and economic potential of nanoscale science and technology, public authorities and firms are investing in the development of nanotechnologies. At the same time, nanotechnologies raise many societal, managerial and economic questions including how nanotechnology differs from prior technologies, the role of public policies in driving the development of nanotechnologies, the emergence of clusters and networking in nanotechnologies, and the wider implications of nanotechnology for social and economic development."

The five-day workshop, starting on March 28th 2011, is organised around five areas:
1. Management of nanotechnologies, Business models, managing converging technologies, etc.
2. New ethical questions around nanotechnologies and risk governance, from risk safety to public debates
3. Scientific and technological dynamics in nanotechnologies, institutional arrangement, individual logics, role of regulation, role of platforms, clusterisation and networks, etc.
4. Geography of nanotechnologies, governance of clusters and networks, institutional transformations
5. Economics of nanotechnologies: Lessons from previous high tech in the hype, respective roles of incumbents and start-ups, etc.

In particular, the workshop seeks to facilitate the academic socialisation of junior scholars by offering sessions and in-depth discussion about forefront research studying the evolution of nanotechnologies. The winter school also offers support in improving junior scholars' publication capabilities as a means to strengthen their publication record and contribute to the advancement of the scientific community.

This winter school is aimed at senior and junior scholars who are studying nanotechnologies: PhDs, post docs etc.

*The Institut d'études politiques de Grenoble, IEP, also known as Sciences Po Grenoble, is a political science grande école located in the campus of the University of Grenoble.

ESIEE Paris is a hub of higher education and research focussed on all aspects of technological innovation and a founder member of the newly-created "Université Paris-Est."

The FRIDA (‘Fostering Regional Innovation and Development through Anchors and Networks') project aims to improve regional policy making within the EU, by advancing state of the art understanding of the importance of anchor firms to regional development and cohesion.

The French National Research Agency (l'Agence Nationale de la Recherche), the ANR, was founded in 2005 and is a funding agency for research projects. Its aim is to increase the number of research projects issued from the entire scientific community, and to provide funding based on calls for proposals and peer review selection processes.

About Grenoble Ecole de Management
Located in the heart of the French Alps, Grenoble Ecole de Management is one of the few business schools worldwide to hold the three accreditations that distinguish leading international business schools: EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System), AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and AMBA (The Association of MBAs). Often described as the Alpine Silicon Valley of Europe, Grenoble is a hotbed of micro and nanotechnology activity. Building on the strength of its expertise in Management, Technology and Innovation and its geographical location, to better respond to the needs of businesses and the evolutions of the business world, the School has developed a specific expertise in nanotechnologies.
