Pierre Gilles de Gennes Institute: Conference about instrumentation and innovation, 2nd edition

Instrument development in physical chemistry often implies significant investments over long periods of time in personnel, money and technique. However, the returns are key, since they generally take fundamental science to the next level and bear new marketing measures. This second congress on “Instrumenter et Innover en Chimie Physique pour Préparer l’Avenir” (Preparing the Future with Instruments and Innovation in Physical Chemistry) will aim to look at the last few instrument improvements in different fields of physical chemistry. It will also show examples of technology transfer in industry. A round-table meeting will be held in order to find the means to develop instruments, in the presence of major actors of  research and industry in the field.

The congress will be held under the authority of the Physical Chemistry division, which is common to the French Chemistry Society and the French Physics Society. It will be set at the Pierre Gilles de Gennes Institute on May 04th and 05th, 2017. It was organized by the following steering committee, which counts the many laureates of the Instrumentation Award of the Physical Chemistry Division, as well as the CEOs of the many groups that form the PCD. -
