The Nanosafety Platform is
part of a unique scientific and industrial environment with a sharp focus on
Grenoble's state-of-the-art science and technology resources are centrally located on the GIANT innovation campus near the city center. GIANT is home to large scientific instruments like the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) with its particle accelerator and the Nanocharacterization Platform (PFNC), which is home to a broad range of characterization equipment and experts unrivalled anywhere else in Europe.
The GIANT (Grenoble Isère Alpes NanoTechnologies) innovation campus was set up to raise Grenoble's profile in the international scientific arena. GIANT brings together all of the universities, research organizations, and other partners located on the campus. Together, GIANT's members form one of the world's leading hubs for technology research. The Nanosafety Platform's environment also includes leading corporations, small- to mid-sized businesses and startups—all of the necessary ingredients to fuel innovation.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
