IMT is a key player in major European research and innovation programs
As a world-class technological institute, IMT naturally takes part in major European programs such as Horizon 2020, the European Union research and innovation program.
Horizon 2020 Projects
The Horizon 2020 program aims to increase European scientific and technological knowledge and expertise.
With a budget of €79 billion for the 2014-2020 period, the Horizon 2020 program provides funding primarily for collaborative research and innovation projects.
Over 120 projects in the major sub-programs of Horizon 2020
Science with and for society
These projects strive to strengthen ties between our laboratories and our European partners in industry (SMEs, midcaps and major firms) and the academic world (universities, research centers).
The aim is to advance the scientific and technological state of the art in our respective areas of expertise.
These projects also propose industrial applications, by using the results to transfer technology to our private partners in France and Europe.
IMT also participates in many other European research programs including the Eureka program to support innovative projects for technological cooperation led by industrial partners. The institute is especially active in the sectors of software programs with ITEA 3, telecommunications with Celtic-Plus and microelectronics with Catrene.
The IMT TeraLab platform aims to speed up big data and artificial intelligence projects for collaborations between researchers and companies. TeraLab is “Silver i-Space” certified by the “Big Data Value Association”.
This label is a guarantee of the technical and legal quality of the services proposed.
TeraLab is a member of the “Industrial Data Space” association.
