Grenoble's Institute for Technology Research in Nanoelectronics is one of the six institutes selected to receive funding under the French government's economic stimulus package.
Minalogic is a member of the future Institute, and will play several key roles:
• Technology transfer: Minalogic will work in conjunction with Grenoble Ecole de Management, which will oversee the business aspects of getting new technologies to market.
• Networking and advocacy: Minalogic will defend the interests of small businesses, which the cluster represents on the Institute's decision-making bodies.
• Promotion: The cluster will leverage in-depth knowledge of the local ecosystem to engage in promotional activities that reach beyond the cluster's current scope. These efforts will target public- and private-sector financers including venture capital firms, private investors including cluster members, and local and national government agencies like Oséo and Gravit that provide business development financing.
