The institute is the entry point for valorisation and partnership actions (research and training).
It sets up a "window" for partners, offering access to the research platforms it is working to develop, as well as the development of long-term collaborations. The institute is also committed to opening up science to the general public and scientific culture.

Issues and Areas of Application

Within the framework of its policy of Valorisation and Innovation for the academic and socio-economic environment, the institute makes available via its platforms, high-level scientific knowledge and know-how as well as state-of-the-art technological tools.

The institute is a privileged place for innovation, enabling us to provide complex and high quality services, training on specific equipment, and expertise activities. Our objectives, research contracts, partnership collaborations or external services concern a wide range of fields of activity: Sustainable construction, Energy and processes, Environment and natural environments, Materials, and Transport.

Enjeux et domaines d'application

Resource centres and platforms

Convinced of the usefulness, transversality and omnipresence of research in small and large companies, we make equipment, skills, tools and services available to targeted users via 11 technology platforms. Each platform concentrates human and material resources (cutting-edge equipment) in order to meet a variety of industrial and socio-economic challenges.

Scientific culture

To contribute to the "Science-Society dialogue", to report on research results, to stimulate interest in science, to develop a taste for questioning: the institute participates in scientific mediation and science awareness actions through multiple and varied interactions between research actors and the socio-economic world (industrialists, students, politicians, artists, the general public, etc.).
