On September 17-18, 2015, the Center for Memory and Recording Research (CMRR) at the University of California in San Diego (UCSD) hosted a kick-off meeting of the new CNRS French-American Associated Laboratory (Laboratoire International Associé - LIA) on "Nanoelectronics, from new phenomena to low-power electronics" with the Université Paris-Sud and the Université de Lorraine.

This LIA was officially inaugurated by the Consul General of France in Los Angeles, Mr. Christophe Lemoine. After a decade-long collaboration between three main scientists (Eric Fullerton - UCSD, Dafiné Ravelosona - Institut d’Electronique Fondamentale/Université Paris-Sud, Stéphane Mangin - Institut Jean Lamour/Université de Lorraine), multiple achievements and a successful Partner University Fund project, a new milestone has been reached with this "laboratory without walls". The two-day kick-off meeting gathered key leaders from both countries and was dedicated to fostering further French-American collaborations in research and education.
