CECAM (Centre Européen de Calcul Atomique et Moléculaire) was founded in Paris in 1969 by Dr Carl Moser. It is an organization devoted to the promotion of fundamental research on advanced computational methods and to their application to important problems in frontier areas of science and technology. As the name suggests, the traditional focus of CECAM has been atomistic and molecular simulations, applied to the physics and chemistry of condensed matter. Over the last twenty years, powerful advances in computer hardware and software have supported the extension of these methods to a wide range of problems in materials science, biology and medicinal chemistry.
Fondation Nanosciences Fondation Nanosciences
The Nanosciences Foundation aims to foster a world-class Nanosciences research in the network’s laboratories, encourage collaborative and multi-disciplinary research, strengthen the connections between research and education, support the coordinated development of share-use facilities and extend international visibility.
Université Grenoble Alpes Université Grenoble Alpes
The Université Grenoble Alpes is a major player in higher education and research in France. As the world is becoming more and more competitive, our institution aims to better respond to the challenges the world poses universities today and in the future, and to be more visible and attractive internationally. The Université Grenoble Alpes already features in the top 100 and top 200 universities in major international rankings (Reuters, Shanghai, Times Higher Education and QS for example) for some of its scientific fields. The UGA rivals the best universities in the world thanks to the strength of its research and the numerous educational innovations it has implemented.
Founded in 1939 by governmental decree, the CNRS aims to evaluate and carry out all research capable of advancing knowledge and bringing social, cultural, and economic benefits for society, contribute to the promotion and application of research results, develop scientific information, support research training and participate in the analysis of the national and international scientific climate and its potential for evolution in order to develop a national policy.
Aalto University Aalto University
Aalto University is a multidisciplinary community where science and art meet technology and business. We are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. Aalto University has six schools with nearly 20 000 students and 4 000 employees, 386 of whom are Professors. There is a wide variety of Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees awarded at Aalto University, and we also offer doctoral programmes in all the fields of study. Aalto University was founded in 2010 as Helsinki University of Technology, the Helsinki School of Economics and the University of Art and Design Helsinki were merged. The main campus is located in Otaniemi in Espoo, Finland. The other campuses are in Töölö and Arabia in Helsinki.
Les Houches School of Physics Les Houches School of Physics
Les Houches School of Physics has been welcoming physicists from around the world since 1951. The School has seen the biggest names in modern physics training young researchers at the start of their careers, some of whom have since won Nobel prizes for physics. The school perpetuates a tradition of excellence, while continuing to adapt to the evolutions of science.
ENS de Lyon ENS de Lyon
The École Normale Supérieure de Lyon is an elite French public institution that trains professors, researchers, senior civil servants as well as business and political leaders. Students choose their courses and split their time between training and research in sciences and humanities. Built on the tradition of the ENS de Fontenay-Saint-Cloud, founded in 1880, the ENS de Lyon also focuses on educational research. It is a symbol of French Republican meritocracy and it remains committed today to disseminating knowledge to the widest audience and to promoting equal opportunity. The ENS de Lyon is part of the Université de Lyon and supports quality research that has earned it a Fields medal (Cedric Villani, 2010) and many CNRS medals. It encourages interdisciplinary studies to foster a better understanding of complex contemporary issues.
Grenoble INP Grenoble INP
The Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble INP) (Institut polytechnique de Grenoble, Groupe Grenoble INP and before INPG)[a] is a French technological university system consisting of six engineering schools. Grenoble INP also has a two-year preparatory class programme, an adult education department, as well as 21 laboratories and a graduate school in Engineering Sciences.[1] More than 1,100 engineers graduate every year from Grenoble INP, making it France's biggest grande école.
The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission or CEA (French: Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives), is a French public government-funded research organisation in the areas of energy, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. The CEA maintains a cross-disciplinary culture of engineers and researchers, building on the synergies between fundamental and technological research. CEA is headed by a board headed by the general administrator (currently Daniel Verwaerde), advised by the high-commissioner for atomic energy (currently Yves Bréchet). The missions of the CEA are equivalent to those of the United States Department of Energy. Its yearly budget amounts to 4.7 billion euros and its permanent staff is slightly under 16,000 persons.[1] It owns Areva.
The main objectives of LabEx OSUG@2020 are to : - expand observing systems and better connect and process data collected for modeling purposes, in order to improve our understanding of natural systems and our ability to predict them ; - extend our shared expertise on environmental issues, including their impact on humans, and provide our expertise as a service in advising public policy ; - attract and train more students through innovative tools and programs, in order to further address strategic research priorities in urgent environmental issues, ecotechnologies, social sciences and health, etc.
La Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes La Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes
Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is a region of France created by the territorial reform of French Regions in 2014; it resulted from the merger of Auvergne and Rhône-Alpes. The new region came into effect on 1 January 2016, after the regional elections in December 2015.
