LIA Atlas Morocco (2017-2021), “Associated Trans-Mediterranean Laboratories for Applications in Solar Energy,” is a formal structured international laboratory collaboration created by CNRS, Georgia Tech, and Moroccan education (MESRSFC) and research (CNRST) entities for international collaborations. Partners are the UMI, Université Mohammed V, and the Université Internationale de Rabat. This agreement has a plan for collaborative research in renewable energy. This lab will allow for scientific synergies in photovoltaics, energy efficiency, and provides resources for the exchange of students and researchers, and a platform for building joint projects funded by companies and by public sources.
