Global competitive cluster Minalogic fosters research-led innovation in intelligent miniaturised products and solutions for industry. Located in Grenoble, France, the cluster channels in a single physical location a range of highly-specialised skills and resources from knowledge creation to the development and production of intelligent miniaturised services for industry.
Minalogic has staked out a position as global leader in intelligent miniaturised solutions—a unique hybrid of micro- and nano-technologies and embedded software—from fundamental research to technology transfer.
The technologies developed at the cluster are applicable to all business sectors, including more traditional industries. The role of Minalogic is to respond to the business community's need to identify new value-added services that can be integrated into existing products in fields that include health care, the environment, mobility, the media, and the textile industry.
