The President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron visited l'X
During his visit to Saclay on October 25, 2017, the President of the French Republic has announced the creation of a university of excellence composed of two poles: Paris-Saclay University on one side, and a cluster of institutions situated in the École Polytechnique area on the other side.
Emmanuel Macron visited the campus of École Polytechnique on October 25 on the occasion of his visit of Plateau de Saclay. Jacques Biot, President of École Polytechnique, exposed the investments made on campus, as well as NanoMax, an ultra-high resolution transmission electron microscope (TEM) for observing nano-crystals during growth.
This microscope, emblematic of the Saclay project, brings together several research teams from the École Polytechnique campus, as well as other actors from Plateau de Saclay such as C2N, the CEA and Université de Paris Sud.
