Cross-disciplinary research programs directly tied into IMT’s strategic plan
Only an interdisciplinary approach will foster the development of new concepts and technological disruptions that are equal to the challenges ahead, and in particular cross-fertilization between different scientific fields and strategic technologies.
The cornerstone of our unique status is our ability to develop and master the generic technologies of the future. These major priorities are served by the full power of IMT’s research.
Our cross-disciplinary programs draw upon and benefit from the expertise of our research professors as part of our response to the world’s major challenges, whether societal, scientific or interdisciplinary.
The Industry of the Future Program
IMT’s unique positioning at the crossroads between industry and digital technology allows us to envision the transformation of both processes and organizations through digital tools.
IMT conducts cutting-edge research based around the major issues facing the Industry of the Future: additive manufacturing, predictive maintenance, big data management, new industry materials, energy efficiency and the co-evolution of humans and machines, whilst striving to keep people at the heart of these major industrial developments.
The scope of IMT’s main actions:
The Health, Autonomy and Wellbeing Program
The maturity of e-health technologies coupled with the increasingly active role played by patients in their own care is paving the way to a radically different healthcare approach in the context of the new personalized medicine paradigm. On the strength of its expertise, IMT has consolidated its position as a key player in technologies and services for healthcare, autonomy and quality of life.
IMT is developing pioneering skills that will strengthen and enrich this ambition. The Institute’s action is based around 4 key priorities, all of them boosted by the cross-cutting nature of its graduate schools along with their value-added response to current challenges:
- Health data and knowledge;
- Efficiency of healthcare systems;
- Autonomy of people;
- Medical devices.
Digital technologies contribute to both improved medical performance and the advancement of healthcare systems. Our researchers’ skills in these domains allow them to experiment with, develop and demonstrate new solutions.
To ensure that these innovations provide an optimal response to societal needs, IMT is already working with several stakeholders involved in healthcare (hospitals, healthcare professionals, caregivers, manufacturers, SMEs, local authorities, the INSERM and many more).
