Génie Electrique et électronique de Paris (GEEPS)

Research unit


Geeps originated from the fusion of several research departments studying varied fields from materials and devices to electrical and electronic energy systems. It's structured around 3 main research axes : (i) Materials (Phemadic), (ii) Electromagnetism (PIEM), and (iii) Systems (ECo2).
Geeps is part of the NanoSaclay LabEx on aspects tied to materials and of the LaSIPS LabEx for systems and software tools. To this fundamental research are coupled experimental developments in partnership with many industrial actors, as underlined by the SystemX IRT and competitivity poles such as Mov'eo, System@tic and Astech.
