Scientific Description
The French national nanofabrication network RENATECH is an integrated partnership of six laboratories of the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) and universities in the field of micro nanotechnologies. RENATECH is coordinated by the INSIS Institute of CNRS (Institute for Engineering and Systems Sciences). It is supported by the CNRS, the partner universities as well as by the dedicated Basic Technological Research program (BTR) of the French National Research Agency (ANR).RENATECH missions:• Strengthen the development of technological expertise and provide the necessary spectrum of support to the nanotechnology research effort.• Provide national and international users – in academia and industry – with an access to leading- edge tools and instrumentation via research collaboration and service fabrication.• Provide basic and advanced education and training on processes and technologies. • Cooperate with other academic institutions and research centers.
