Save the date. The LIMMS 4-Year Review Workshop and the EUJO-LIMMS Final Workshop will be organized back-to-back on September 28 and 29, 2015 at CNRS in Paris. On September 28, LIMMS will share its achievements from the past 4 years and discuss its current scientific challenges. On September 29, the EUJO-LIMMS team will introduce all results from its extensive structuring effort of the first European Union Laboratory in Japan. Hosted European researchers will introduce the joint projects and new applications they could develop in Japan.
Faire progresser la recherche médicale grâce à la microtechnologie, ce n’est plus de la science-fiction. Contre le cancer, d’invisibles dispositifs électromécaniques permettront bientôt de dépister plus tôt la maladie et de mieux la combattre … (Les travaux de recherche de Liviu Nicu (LAAS), Dominique Collard (LIMMS et SMMIL-E) et Vincent Senez (IEMN))
The LIMMS (Laboratory for Integrated Micro-Mechatronic Systems), a joint laboratory between the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research, France) and the Institute of Industrial Science (IIS) of the University of Tokyo has celebrated its 20th anniversary (1995-2015).
The LIMMS was created in 1995 by two visionaries, Prof. Jean-Jacques Gagnepain, scientific Director of the Engineering Science department of CNRS and Prof. Fumio Harashima, General Director of IIS of the University of Tokyo, bridging the administrative and scientific gaps between the 2 countries at that time.
The ceremony was held on Thursday January 29, 2015 in IIS site of the Komaba Campus in Tokyo. The event was highlighted by the presences of Prof. Yoshiaki Nakano, Director General of IIS, Prof. Jean-Yves Marzin, Director of the Institute of Engineering Sciences and Systems of CNRS and the Ambassador of France in Japan, his Excellency Thierry Dana. A large delegation of CNRS researchers and directors from France joint the event. During the celebration, a room of the IIS was dedicated to the Prof. Jean-Jacques Gagnepain memory and a plaque was unveiled.
