“The Future of Manufacturing” seminar, with the French engineering school Arts et Métiers ParisTech

Held on last October, 28-29, the seminar on the “Future of Manufacturing” gathered experts from the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute and from the French engineering school Art et Métiers ParisTech – both institutions are highly involved in national structures to develop advanced manufacturing- as well as representatives from French industries and industrial research institutions (PSA-Peugeot Citroën, Safran, KUKA, Fives Industries, CEA-List, Cetim)

During the conferences, workshops and laboratory visits, French and American attendees (around 98, including about thirty French experts) reviewed the status of advanced manufacturing and the issues to be faced. Following-up on this seminar, Arts et Métiers ParisTech and Georgia announced their intention to initiate partnerships, in research and education, with the prospect of long-term collaborations.

“Powering the World with Photovoltaïcs” seminar, with French research institution CEA-Liten

In the context of the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies, and of the COP21, the second seminar, held on last November, 3, was centered on “Powering the World with Photovoltaïcs: Status and Opportunities”. This event associated experts from the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics from Georgia Tech on the American side and from CEA-Liten on the French side and gathered 36 attendees. The seminar focused on the status of photovoltaic technology diffusion on both sides of the Atlantic and on current research issues. Avenues for potential collaborations between Georgia Tech and CEA-Liten were also explored.
