Innovative materials

From design to end-of-life!

Optimise the properties of materials of the future by controlling their microstructure, their architecture and the different stages of their lifecycle: development, forming, recycling.

Transports (car industry, aeronautics, railways etc.)

To make structures lighter, increaseengine efficiency (and therefore reduceenergy consumption), as well as to improvesafety and comfort etc..

Engineering courses:


Nuclear energy

Materials to increasethe service life of power stations, to developnew generation reactors.

Alternative energies

New materials and processes to produce cheaper and more efficient photovoltaic cells.      

 Engineering courses
Leisure activities, sports - health

Lighter, solider, corrosion-resistant and biocompatible materials etc.

Engineering courses:

Selection of materials to meet the challenges of reduction of scales (when the dimensions of the components are similar to the size of the microstructures): limitdielectric leakage, maintain good conductivity performance, forcematerials to coexist in spite of incompatibilities linked to surface energies, manufacturehybrid components etc.

Building industry

New materials to meet future standards for thermal insulation, sound insulation, temporary energy storage etc..
