Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics

Inac, a joint CEA-UGA research institute, is a major actor in fundamental research on condensed matter, soft matter and cryogenics in Grenoble.

Most of its activities in physics, chemistry and at the interface with biology are included under the banner of nanoscience. It has programmes in several strategic areas: low carbon energy, information technology, heath technology, global defence and security, development and use of large facilities, cryogenics for space and for large facilities. With the advent of nanosciences, the organisation of research within Inac based on decompartmentalizing scientific fields is more relevant than ever: synergies of all kinds are looked into in order to efficiently exploit all properties of matter, at the nanometer scale.



Inac has three major commitments:

  • Producing frontier science results in basic research (~350 scientific publications in the best journals per year)
  • Training of first class scientists through doctoral and post-doctoral studies (more than 100 PhD students at a time)
  • Taking care of valorising opportunities of applications emerging from Inac breakthroughs (25 patents granted per year)
