International cooperation is a central component of research and innovation at IMT
Through its international collaborations, IMT plays an active role in the latest scientific and technological developments in its areas of expertise to produce top-level, state-of-the-art research results at the global level.
This international positioning boosts the competitiveness and impact of IMT research by attracting top students and researchers and transferring research results to the economic fabric.
IMT’s international dimension is also reinforced by its Scientific Advisory Board. Comprising French and foreign experts from academic, industrial and institutional backgrounds, it advises the Institute on major strategic directions for research and innovation.
As a world-class technological institute, IMT naturally takes part in major European programs including:
- The European Union Horizon 2020 program (2014-2020)
- The Eureka program supporting projects for technological cooperation between private companies (major firms, SMEs and midcaps) and European laboratories.
IMT has created strong and lasting ties with international laboratories of excellence.
These partnerships allow IMT to initiate or reinforce studies in priority areas of research to which the institute would like to contribute.
IMT actively participates in international programs organized by the National Research Agency (ANR) and the Ministry of Foreign affairs, such as ANR international programs, Hubert Curien Partnerships (PHC), STIC-AMSud regional program (South America).
