THE FOLLOWING TEXT BY REDOUANE BORSALI, DIRECTOR OF INSTITUT CARNOT POLYNAT
The Institut Carnot PolyNat is today an essential label to reinforce our actions of collaborations with the industrialists in the field of high-added value, biosourced, nanostructured materials. Since its creation in May 2011, it made possible to initiate new co-operations between the five partners, through scientific resourcing actions and means. In the same way, the label reinforces our national and international positioning in this flagship domain of our competencies.
Finally, beyond the five scientific challenges of the Polynat research strategy, the science we develop, in close collaboration with the industrialists, aims at meeting the societal expectations in the different sectors of nanotechnologies and the transition towards a sustainable bio-economy.
