Inauguration of ISIS-2

Yesterday, October 10, the extension of ISIS, called ISIS-2, has been officially inaugurated. It will welcome 2 senior labs, 3 juniors labs and industrial antennas. Moreover, it will also host a datacenter of the University and the two foundations, Fondation Université de Strasbourg and Fondation pour la Recherche en Chimie

A bottle alsacian wine has been sent and broken against the front of the new building, like for the launching of a new boat on the sea, see the little video taken by Artur Cieselski from Paolo Samori’s group.

You can find an article (in french) on the University website and more pictures on the social networks of the University. Here is also a video (in french) taken by the local TV.

Gold medal for Thomas !

We have the great pleasure to announce that Thomas Ebbesen will be the next recipient of the CNRS Gold Medal which is the most prestigious french scientific prize. It was created by the CNRS in 1954 and one can find the full list of laureates on the wiki page, among whom Louis De Broglie, Pierre Gilles de Gennes or Jean-Marie Lehn…See also the CNRS publication about it.

An official ceremony will take place in Paris in October 2019.

Congratulations Thomas !

Au boulot à vélo

As each year since 10 years, Strasbourg Eurometropole and CADR67 are organizing a challenge to promote the use of bicycles to go to work, called Au boulot à vélo . At ISIS, we are also taking part under the banner of the University and CNRS. Remember : University and CNRS won in 2017 and 2018 (category public company of more than 500 employees) so why not one more time ! Here below some ISIS members who are bicycle-addicts.

ISIS is expanding

A nice picture of all the ISIS members (at least those present this day, February 21) was taken last week in front of the institute. For information, ISIS will expand next year as the works for the building extension just started this month, a nice way to celebrate its 15th birthday !
