Glimpses of India at IMEC

This Friday (June 23rd), we went to IMEC, a research center in nanoelectronics and nanotechnology (in Leuven). We weren’t there for the technology but because they organised an afternoon with Indian dances, songs, etc. We were only able to attend the last few dances but we met people from ISAL (I am tempted to add: “as usual”). It was nicely done with posters explaining some Indian traditions, huge flat screens showing Bollywood dances and food (of course). Looking for more informations on their website, I see that they have a bioelectronics section where they are studying neurons interactions with electronic chips 🙂 (a.o.). Unfortunately, there isn’t any jobs for biologists in this department for the moment.
