Through a number of innovative entrepreneurial initiatives
IMT helps businesses prepare for the challenges of industrial transformation
IMT’s unique positioning, at the crossroads between industry and digital technology, allows us to anticipate the transformation of both processes and organizations using the required digital tools.
IMT conducts cutting-edge research focusing on major issues facing the Industry of the Future: additive manufacturing, predictive maintenance, big data management, new industry materials, energy efficiency and human-machine co-evolution.
Our main lines of action
Initiatives and highlights
IMT is one of the 11 founding members of the Alliance for Industry of the Future
The Alliance for Industry of the Future aims to make France a leader in the new generation of global industry, allowing it to play a central role in new industrial systems.
Our goal is to ensure that all companies, especially SMEs, can benefit from operational support in order to make their production tools and overall organizations more efficient.
German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future
As part of the partnership between the French Alliance for Industry of the Future and the German platform Industrie 4.0, IMT and Technische Universität München (TUM) created the German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future on 27 October 2015.
This virtual academy aims to develop complementary expertise in German-French research and education in topics relating to the industry of the future, by building on the Alliance for Industry of the Future (France) and Platform Industrie 4.0 (Germany) networks.
In the long term, it will form a bilateral network of excellence with a European scope and will interact with industry.
Portail Teralab DataScience
TeraLab is a platform aimed at accelerating research, innovation and education in AI and Big Data. It is run by IMT and was created through the Investissement d’Avenir (Future Investments) program.
TeraLab provides human and technological resources, access to an ecosystem and a secure, sovereign and neutral infrastructure, giving industrial players access to high-value data to help them overcome the scientific and technological obstacles in their use cases.
- The platform is pre-competitive,meaning that our aim is to allow data providers to assess the value of a service or product at the end of a three-month project, in order to determine the investments required for maturation or to begin production.
12 projets H2020
The Horizon 2020 program aims to strengthen the scientific and technological bases.
79 billion euros over the period 2014 – 2020, the Horizon 2020 program supports research and innovation projects.
These projects are to strengthen the links of our laboratories with our European industrial partners (SMEs, ETI and large groups) and academic partners (universities, research centers).
The goal of these projects is to advance the state of the art of science and technology in our respective fields.
They are also available in France and Europe.
30 technology platforms
IMT has technological platforms distributed in its various schools and bringing together human and material resources on the application areas of IMT. These platforms are open to public and private partners to develop their partnership research, transfer of results, proof of concepts, tests and experiments. Among them :
Grouping of skills at the service of rapid product development: additive manufacturing (FA), subtractive manufacturing (FS), FA + FS hybridization: research, R&D, transfer, industrialization and training.
Dedicated to the integrated chain Composite materials and plastic processing: design, development / manufacturing, control and recycling.
White Paper “Enterprise of the future – The challenges of digital transformation”
Collective Work, Enterprise of the Future – The Challenges of Digital Transformation brings together nearly 15 IMT researchers to question the implications of this major transition.
In 40 pages, it takes stock of the research carried out on the subject around three key moments: the levers, the impacts, the stakes of the research. Then he puts the published works in a historical and systemic perspective. In the end, it is the very notion of the company and its future that is treated.
Chair in Applied Mathematics OQUAIDO
The OQUAIDO Chair – Optimisation et QUAntification d’Incertitudes pour les Données Onéreuses in French– is the chair in applied mathematics held at Mines Saint-Étienne (France).
It aims at gathering academical and technological partners to work on problems involving costly-to-evaluate numerical simulators for uncertainty quantification, optimization and inverse problems.
This Chair, created in January 2016, is the continuation of the projects DICE and ReDICE which respectively covered the periods 2006-2009 and 2011-2015.
Framework agreement: e.l.m leblanc Armines and IMT
A lasting partnership based on three components: research, R&D and foresight.
1. Develop cutting-edge research in the fields of digital technologies, acoustics, Big Data and Machine Learning, Industry of the Future,
2. Develop innovative joint R&D projects on key industrial challenges such as automation, Big Data, the Internet of Things, security, as well as the production line, logistics and transport, human-machine cooperation and intelligent agents.
3. Engage in future-oriented reflection and research on humankind’s place in the digital and industrial transitions, and create and develop new paradigms (business models, new organizational forms, new products and services) for the industry of the future.
IMT is a public institution dedicated to higher education and research for innovation.
It is a key player in the fusion of science, engineering and digital technology, and takes its schools’ skills into the major fields of transformation in digital technology, industry, energy and the environment as well as their impact on the industry of the future, cities, health, and autonomy.
