Participation of IMT Nord Europe in 'GDR week' in Caen


On December 1-2, 2021, the GDR week MIC 2021 took place. Project partners within IMT Nord Europe have taken the opportunity to present the ATHENS project.

A "GDR Week" is organized every year, bringing all players together, to promote exchanges and discussions on the results of the actions carried out in the previous year and on research perspectives. This GdR week 2021 will take place at the University of Caen on Campus 2. It is co-organized by the CRISMAT laboratory, from ENSICAEN / UNICAEN / CNRS, and ABTE from UNICAEN.

The scientific days will make it possible to make an inventory of the different themes of the previous GdRs and to identify new research perspectives. This event provides an opportunity to learn about ongoing biocomposites research and learn about the industry's prospects. It is an excellent opportunity to meet researchers in the field of biocomposites and to introduce the ATHENS project to them.
