The BTR program with 15,000 m2 of clean room facilities distributed in seven national facilities and a task force of about 400 researchers brings a strong support to the R&D activities in micro & nanotechnologies, from basic research to industrial applications. BTR program is a key pillar of the National Strategy in Research and Innovation (SNRI) as a national research infrastructure.
The BTR program turns out to be one key enabler allowing France to maintain its position in the field of nanotechnologies.
It plays a major role :
• In advanced technological positioning in the fields of the future such as nanoelectronics, photonics, spintronics, and micro- and nanosystems, by making possible the development of new concepts, materials, devices and systems,
• In the economy of research in micro- and nanotechnology in France, by focussing the purchase of key equipments on selected research infrastructures working in network mode to the benefit of the academic and industrial communities,
• As a lever effect in Europe, by bringing about a significant increase in the success rate within the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development (PCRD), the technological credibility of the teams being strengthened by access to cutting-edge nanomanufacturing platforms and technologically advanced demonstrators.
