The UTC/CNRS-INSIS Collegium

As of 2010, UTC and the CNRS agreed to esta­blish the 1st French Col­le­gium: a unique sys­tem focu­sed on trai­ning, research and inno­va­tion that encou­rage inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry in engi­nee­ring sciences and sys­tems engineering.

Institute for Engineering and Systems Sciences (INSIS)

Responding to society's needs

CNRS's Ins­ti­tute for Engi­nee­ring and Sys­tems Sciences (INSIS) brings toge­ther fun­da­men­tal research, engi­nee­ring and tech­no­lo­gy, empha­si­zing a natu­ral­ly inte­gra­tive sys­tems approach stem­ming from the scien­ti­fic dis­ci­plines encom­pas­sed by the Ins­ti­tute. From unders­tan­ding phe­no­me­na to thin­king up sys­tems of major tech­no­lo­gi­cal and socie­tal impor­tance, and from desi­gning such sys­tems to deve­lo­ping basic concepts and tech­no­lo­gies, engi­nee­ring and sys­tems sciences lie at the heart of tomorrow's technologies. 


INSIS's mis­sion is to pro­mote and coor­di­nate research car­ried out in engi­nee­ring and sys­tems sciences, while rein­for­cing and crea­ting syner­gies bet­ween the various dis­ci­plines repre­sen­ted in the Institute:

  • Mate­rials and struc­tu­ral mecha­nics and engi­nee­ring, Solids mecha­nics, Acoustics
  • Fluid and reac­tive media: trans­port, trans­fer, trans­form processes
  • Micro- and nanoe­lec­tro­nics, Micro- and nano­tech­no­lo­gies, Micro- and nano­sys­tems, Elec­tro­ma­gne­tism, Elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring, Photonics

Scientfic polyvalence

Scientific poolyvalence, technological convergence

The UTC/CNRS-INSIS (Ins­ti­tute for engi­nee­ring sciences and sys­tems engi­nee­ring), Col­le­gium unites the efforts of the 9 UTC labo­ra­to­ries in a joint approach of both ins­ti­tu­tions to deve­lop part­ner­ships, to rein­force tech­no­lo­gy-inten­sive and to gain in noto­rie­ty and visibility.

The Col­le­gium conso­li­dates the exis­ting, dyna­mic rela­tion­ship bet­ween the CNRS and UTC, with the prior crea­tion of the Research Fede­ra­tion, code-named "Hete­ro­ge­neous Inter­ac­ting Sys­tems" (FR3272 SHIC)com­bi­ning three joint CNRS-UTC units:

  • UTC-BMBI: Bio­me­cha­nics, bio-medi­cine and bio-engi­nee­ring , a joint lab., code-named UMR UTC/CNRS 7338
  • UTC-HEUDIASYC: com­pu­ter and infor­ma­tion sciences, auto­ma­tion & control, deci­sion-making pro­cesses, a joint lab., code-named UMR UTC/CNRS 7253
  • UTC-ROBERVAL: Mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring, mate­rial science and engi­nee­ring, acous­tics, code-named FRE UTC/CNRS 2012

Interdisciplinary research

Interdisciplinary research, boosting a dynamic set of ideas

The objec­tive of an inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry approach is to create a scien­ti­fic 'dyna­mique', clo­se­ly tied to trai­ning tar­gets, indus­trial research and inno­va­tion. The ove­rar­ching aim is to offer a space where inven­ti­ve­ness and crea­ti­vi­ty of research per­son­nel can be expres­sed in the context of engi­nee­ring and sys­tems sciences. 

The Col­le­gium acts as an inno­va­tion lever for UTC, adding value to the popu­la­tion of lec­tu­rers and research scien­tists; the assi­gned mis­sion is to deve­lop pro­jects pro­vi­ding a more effi­cient trai­ning-research inter­face and inter­ac­tion, ampli­fying part­ner­ships, impro­ve­ment the detec­tion (and fol­low-up) of inno­va­tions that research work gene­rates. These actions, taken toge­ther, deve­lop the ori­gi­nal fea­tures of the CNRS-INSIS agree­ment with UTC in terms of regio­nal, natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal impact and visibility.
