Our colleague Jean-Philippe Attané, Associate Professor at the University Grenoble Alpes, was appointed Senior Member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF), beginning from October 1, 2021 for a period of five years.
The IUF distinguishes every year a small number of university professors for their research excellence and international recognition, providing theses members additional support for their research activities.
Dr. J. P. Attané is the Head of the Topological Spintronics team at SPINTEC, whose activities focus on solid-state physics and nanotechnology, and more particularly on the study of spin electronics. Graduated in Musicology from Sorbonne University, he teaches Physics and Musicology, and has co-founded and co-directs the Double Degree “Physique & Musicology” of Grenoble Alpes University. He also takes part in the organisation and in the management of the University, at the local or national (CNU) level. Former Auditeur of the Institut des Hautes Etudes de l’Entreprise, Dr. Attané has also graduated in Law and in Economics (both at Université Grenoble Alpes), and participates within the Spintec laboratory to valorization efforts.
Already appointed as Junior Member of the Institut Universitaire de France from 2011 to 2016, he will be officially inducted as a Senior Member of the IUF in autumn 2021 during an official ceremony in a prestigious place in Paris (Sorbonne, Collège de France or Institut de France).
