The LIMMS (Laboratory for Integrated Micro Mechatronic Systems) is an International Joint research Unit between the French National Centre for Scientific Research and the Institute of Industrial Science of the University of Tokyo (UTokyo-IIS). Created in 1995, the LIMMS hosts French and Japanese researchers who jointly develop their research making use of micro and nanotechnologies. Since its beginnings, the LIMMS has been hosting more than 160 scientists. In the past four years, more than 200 publications and 5 patents were released by this international laboratory.  

In order to share its last developments and discuss its current scientific challenges, LIMMS/CNRS-IIS organizes its Review Workshop on September 28, 2015 on Campus Gerard Megie of CNRS. This event offers to take stock of the achievements and perspectives around 3 scientific challenges in which micro and nanotechnologies play a major role: MEMSAdvanced MEMS, and Nanotech. Each challenge will be subjected to one session which will gather Japanese, and French experts.

This workshop will also be a gateway to mobility at LIMMS in Tokyo for researchers having a personal scientific project. Japanese and French LIMMS members will present their activities, set-up collaborations, and talk with their counterparts willing to pursue their research at LIMMS. The scientific and administrative framework, as well as practical aspects of such mobility, will be introduced.

EUJO-LIMMS is the first laboratory of the European Union in Japan, in the field of micro and nanosystems. The project supported by the EU 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7),  aims at opening the activity of the Laboratory for Integrated Micro Mechatronic Systems (LIMMS), Joint Unit between CNRS and The University of Tokyo-Institute of Industrial Science, located in Tokyo, to European partners, namely:

  • Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland,
  • University of Freiburg - Department of Microsystems Engineering (IMTEK) in Germany,
  • Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.(VTT) in Finland,
  • Institute for Nanotechnology of The University of Twente (MESA+) in the Netherlands.

The Final Workshop of the EUJO-LIMMS project will be held at CNRS, in Paris (France) on September 29th, 2015. 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 in flexible electronics, optics, nanotechnology, molecular and cellular bio-engineering they could develop in Japan
