15 M€ of high technology equipments

How to work with us:

Within the framework of the French technological centres opening (Renatech network), the FEMTO-ST Institute is committed to support at MIMENTO projects from external laboratories or from industrial partners for research collaboration. Each request will be examined by a local committee and will lead to a discussion with the technical staff to check the feasibility of the project, its cost and the fabrication time. Depending on the technological project, external people will be invited to perform themselves some technological steps in the cleanroom.

Renatech Network

MIMENTO is a member of the “RENATECH” network (French national network for large facilities involved in technological research in the field of micro and nanotechnology). This network is a partnership between five CNRS academic technology centers (LTM (Grenoble), C2N (Orsay / Marcoussis), IEMN (Lille), LAAS (Toulouse), FEMTO-ST (Besançon)) and CEA – LETI (Grenoble). The purpose of this network is to support French research by providing access to fabrication facilities and technology experts for interested research teams. It is also open to regional, national and international industrial partners for research collaboration.

Regionally, the FEMTO-ST Institute is associated with the “Pôle des Microtechniques” (a regional cluster of microtechnology-based
companies and research centres) and with the proximity Technological centres of Nancy/Strasbourg. It is also a partner of The Competencies Centre in Nanosciences and Nanotechnology Grand Est (C'Nano Grand Est).
