 The involved partners developed a long term bilateral relationship before to join their efforts to create LINK.
(i) Saint-Gobain and NIMS (since 2008, x articles and x joint patent applications and x workshops organized in common),
(ii) CNRS and NIMS (since 2004, 2 MOU and 1 CCA signed) and
(ii) ISCR at The University of Rennes 1 and NIMS (since 2001, 1 MOU, 1 CCA and 1 ICGP signed, more than 30 articles published and 5 workshops organized in common).

The institute ICSR (UMR 6226 CNRS-UR1) at the University of Rennes 1 was selected as first mirror unit in France for LINK.
