Presentation

At the heart of the sustainable mobility and energy ecosystems,
outstanding research serving industry

       

Innovation

  • Innovative solutions to address technological challenges and market needs
    ♦ Powertrain systems:
       - Low-carbon fuels and eco-mobility (cars, trucks, urban transport, off-road, maritime and aviation)
       - Mobile or stationary systems for energy production and storage and lost energy recovery
  • High-performance experimental resources and digital tools resulting in innovations with reduced costs and development times
  • A proactive industrial protection policy

Technology transfer

  • Support for industrial sectors, covering a very broad range of technological readiness levels (TRL 1 to 9)
  • Transfer of our R&D results via:
     - joint product development with licensing out operations
     - strategic partnerships
     - collaborative research agreements
  • An innovation support policy, aimed particularly at micro-companies, SME's and intermediate-sized companies

Target Markets

  • Automobile
  • Aviation
  • Energy
  • Off-road
  • River, maritime
  • Rail 

         

Cutting-edge expertise and skills

  • 3D modeling and advanced combustion diagnostics
  • System simulation and real-time simulation
  • Passenger cars and heavy-duty vehicles IC engine technologies (gasoline, diesel, gas, etc.)
  • After-treatment systems
  • Powertrain architecture design and vehicle integration
  • Powertrain control and onboard energy optimization
  • Powertrain/fuel compatibility and alternative fuels
  • Electric machines & power electronics
  • Energy storage systems

Collaboration 

  • Close ties with industry: from microcompanies, SME's and intermediate-sized companies to major industrial groups
  • A strong commitment within competitiveness clusters (Mov’eo, LUTB, Systematic, Astech, etc.)
  • Pooled and targeted action within the context of Carnot “industrial sector” projects: coordinator of Carnauto for the automobile sector and partner of Aircar for the aviation sector
  • A synergy with networks of academic partners and R&D laboratories with an international influence
  • Active participation in European authorities representing research and industry (EARPA, ERTRAC, EGVIA)
