In front of nearly 200 guests, warmly welcomed by the president of SEM MINATEC Entreprises, Mrs. Annick MERLE, the whole team and the shareholders celebrated the laying of the first stone of the BHT2.
To mark the official launch of the new building, all of the stakeholders took to the podium to explain to the guests the involvement of their organizations and to reiterate their ambition for the SEM’s overall project: to welcome and facilitate the development of innovative companies in the region, particularly at MINATEC.
Following on from the first High Technology Building (the BHT) which opened in 2003, the BHT2 is designed to accommodate new projects by offering customised offices, laboratories and/or clean rooms.
The MINATEC Entreprises team manages the entire building and oversees its operation, maintenance and marketing, relieving tenants of the complex and time-consuming task of running it. This hosting/services model has proven its worth since the creation of the SEM, with the emergence of some fine local “nuggets” (UROMEMS, PX THERAPEUTICS, MICROOLED, CYTOO, etc.), as recalled in her speech by Geneviève FIORASO, who supported the project at its birth.
The 3D film presenting the project was unveiled during the ceremony, drawing a hearty round of applause from the entire assembly. Feel free to share the BHT2 – Minatec Entreprises video
The local and economic press was very present for this laying of the foundation stone of the BHT2, of which you will find below the links of the numerous articles published.
MINATEC Entreprises would like to thank the journalists and photographers who perfectly captured the atmosphere and importance of the event:
