HELP US SUPPORTING HIGH LEVEL RESEARCH IN NANOSCIENCES
To achieve its missions, the Foundation supports several kinds of projects:
Chairs of Excellence :
Our aim is to recruit high-level scientists of any nationaility and re-locate them to Grenoble. The Foundation provides leading scientists with funding to create their own research team ( by employing PhD. students and post-docs), and buy any required equipment.
You can have a look at the scientists presently enrolled on a Chair of Excellence or at the Ph.D. students employed by the Foundation.
- RTRA projects :
Financial support is awarded to particularly innovative research projects that foster cooperative research between the network's laboratories
- Technological platforms:
The foundation sustains the development of several technological platforms in Grenoble, which offer up-to-date facilities for nanoscale fabrication, synthesis, characterization, modeling and computation, as well as training courses available to all qualified users from the network's laboratories.
- Ph.D. grants
All along the year, the Foundation also provides Ph.D. grants to top-level students identified as promising scientists in one of the 32 laboratories of the network.
International Schools colaborations
The Foundation also finances some programs for high-level international schools, located in Grenoble, that provide state-of-the-art education in Nanosciences:
- the European School on Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies (ESONN)
- the Higher European Research Course for Users of Large Experimental Systems (HERCULES)
- International and national events focused on Nanosciences
If you want to support one (or many!) of these projects, please do contact Miss Stéphanie Monfront by email or on +33 (0)4 56 52 96 03
