M.I.N.E.S

Carnot institute

Innovative methods for companies and society

The concept of research “orientated” towards companies and society is at the base of the creation of the M.I.N.E.S Carnot Institute. Composed of Armines and 8 engineering schools, it is built on a multi-disciplinary academic foundation enhanced by a 50-year heritage of providing solutions to meet the needs of the socio-economic players. Truly inspirational for companies seeking innovation, the M.I.N.E.S Carnot Institutedraws its strength from its motivation to break down scientific barriers.

Apart from its wide range of skills, the community of 1,700 research staff also has experience in technology transfer.

Innovation with SMEs & mid-cap firms

The M.I.N.E.S Carnot Institute is partnering 6 of the 8 projects which have been selected under the "Filières" call for projects launched in 2015 by the Commissariat-General for Investment.

The aim is to strengthen the laboratories’ ability to take ownership of the scientific obstacles raised by the SMEs & mid-cap firms operating in the following economic sectors:

  • Fashion and Luxury (coordinated by M.I.N.E.S)
  • Energy
  • Extractive industries
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Aircraft industry
  • Healthcare & Drugs
