The Centre of Excellence of Multifunctional Architectured Materials (CEMAM) is devoted to the design, creation, and the fundamental understanding of new multifunctional materials and improved performances that will underlie the technologies of the future.

CEMAM has a special mission: to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research and education in the science and engineering of materials that will address the needs of the society of tomorrow.

CEMAM is the brainchild of SIMAP, LEPMI, and LMGP, three academic laboratories specializing in Materials Science and Process Engineering (MSE), a team from the laboratory of Biomedical Engineering TIMC and a team of fundamental physicists from LIPHY.

Based in Grenoble, it represents 130 permanent researchers in materials science, chemistry, mechanics, and biology. CEMAM also promotes close collaborations with industry and other universities.
