IPGG Research teams

The current period faces considerable challenges for the society, especially in the domains of health, energy, access to water, ecology and environment, etc. Innovation in these strategic domains requires technological breakthroughs and such steps can only occur via key advances in fundamental science. The Institute Pierre-Gilles de Gennes is able to meet this ambitious challenge: because its core domain – micro- and nano- fluidics – is at the heart of scientific progress to tackle these challenges; because it involves teams with expertise recognized at the international level on these domains; and because the institute has a built-in strategy to transform scientific breakthroughs into technological solutions, allowing to answer practically to societal challenges.

The IPGG consists of 16 research teams:
