Academic Network

Published on 7 May 2019

A major national & international academic network

As well as working closely with Grenoble's energy-oriented academic research labs (SIMAP, LEPMI, Institut Néel, G2Elab, and LEGI, among others as part of the ""Institut Carnot Energies du Futur,  Liten has close working relationships with national labs in Bordeaux, Paris, Toulouse, Nancy or Nantes for example. Our European partners include technology research institutes such as Fraunhofer and Helmotz in Germany, VTT in Finland, ENEA in Italy, SINTEF in Norway, EPFL in Switzerland, and TNO and ECN in the Netherlands, among others. All of these partners enjoy strong working relationships with our researchers, resulting in the development of important academic publications. For us at Liten, these partnerships provide valuable opportunities to raise our profile in a given field or acquire new knowledge crucial to our R&D. Much of the R&D we carry out with partners is organized and funded in part through national agencies  (ANR, FUI, ADEME) and EU (FP7 and Horizon 2020) programs. Highly exploratory R&D is bolstered via the "Institut Carnot Energies du Futur" programs. Overall, new innovative research accounts for 20% to 25% of Liten's budget.
