The products and services developed by Minalogic members address all industries, from ICT and healthcare to energy and advanced manufacturing.
La French Tech
The French government introduced an initiative named “La French Tech” in November 2013.
The aim is to unite, organise and promote the French startup ecosystem, to boost startups’ growth via accelerators and, lastly, to bolster French Tech’s international influence.
With “La French Tech”, which supplements both measures already rolled out to enhance France’s appeal through promotion and advocacy work, and the French Tech Hubs, whose role is to coordinate French ecosystems abroad, the French government is giving itself the means to make France one of the world’s most appealing nations for start-ups.
CORIAL R&D projects
CORIAL closely collaborates with top research labs, industrial leaders, and suppliers, in various market segments, to jointly develop innovative products and to gain in-depth insight into customer needs.
HMDE – FUI labeled and financed project
Led by CORIAL, the project HMDE – Hard Material Deep Etching – has the aim to develop micro-sized components made with hard materials (sapphire, glass, ceramics, crystals…), with 3D structures, not realizable by conventional micro-machining techniques.
Within this project, CORIAL develops a 200 mm ICP-RIE etch system which has the capability to support ICP, RIE, and DRIE technologies in the SAME reactor.
