Cutting-edge collaboration between France and Singapore
CINTRA is a French-Singaporean international joint laboratory between three major partners : the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) - Institute for Engineering and systems Science; Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Thales - a French electronics giant and global leader in aerospace, defence, security and transportation industries.


Dedication to excellence
CINTRA is located at NTU’s Research Techno Plaza and brings together people from NTU, CNRS
and Thales.
CINTRA welcomes senior researchers, research fellows, PhD students, and interns with a strong involvement of over 20 host NTU professors. Currently, CINTRA has more than 60 members.
CINTRA aims to harness the latest in science and technology to develop innovation in nanotechnologies for nanoelectronics and nanophotonics. The scientific policy is based on 3 technological axes (CarTech, NwTech, PMN) mainly dedicated to 3 application areas (nanopackaging, multifunctional materials & devices, microwave photonics & sensing).


Mission

> To merge industrial and academic research expertise to study innovative solutions for critical photonics  and electronics functions.

> To focus research on nanoscale photonics, electronic devices and their architectures.

> To develop innovative technologies for integrating electronics and photonics on a chip.
