Four axes of research are developed at the IPPG:
- Fundamental Microfluidics: dealing with the study of original phenomena in miniaturized (micro or nanometric) systems.
- Technology: improving microfluidics technologies by using new materials, original concepts of micro and nanofabrication and innovative surface treatments.
The IPGG promotes fast and cost-effective technologies thanks to its technological platform.
- Use-inspired research: relying on a great network of collaboration, the IPGG develops microfluidic devices to answer biologists, clinicians, pharmacologists, cosmeticians, oil companies, chemists, or other fields needs.
- Entrepreneurial-oriented research: many projects carried out at the IPGG can result in creating start-ups.
In this respect, the incubator will play a decisive role providing logistical support for the developing company.
Microfluidics or the science of manipulation of small fluid volumes with new technologies. Talking of the Industry world and Research, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes used to say that « both have everything...
IPGG ambition is to strengthen and expand the microfluidic « Revolution ». Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, PGG for his students, emphasized on the importance of interfaces in science.
IPGG is a LABEX and an EQUIPEX : it is supported by the « Investment for the Future Program ». It is run by a steering Comitee (COPIL), which plays a deliberative role on the funds granted...
