Mines ParisTech and Safran inaugurate the mechanics, fluids, solids and materials room built on the School's premises with Safran's support. An opportunity for Mines ParisTech and Safran to reaffirm their historic partnership and present the work of their Chairs. Crystal - High-temperature materials and Drive for All - Automated driving.
This 120 m2 at the heart of the Mines ParisTech campus, will enable students to put their theoretical knowledge of mechanics and materials into practice, with engine dismantling, mechanical testing on specimens and structures, microstructural observations of materials, 3D printing and numerical simulation all in one place.
Designed by architect Vincenzo Iovino with financial support from Safran, this room, which contributes to providing students in the civil engineering program at Mines ParisTech with state-of-the-art teaching tools, is also a further step in the collaboration between the two partners.
Launched 50 years ago, this initiative prefigured the model of company-oriented research, driven by a shared vision of the industrial challenges of the 21st century.e century, based on a combination of tools and skills, research and education, to develop the technologies of the future.
The Cristal and Drive for All Chairs: 2 concrete examples of Safran - MINES ParisTech research partnerships
Doctoral and post-doctoral students took advantage of the inauguration to present the work of the Cristal Chair. Created in 2015, this 5-year Chair will strengthen cooperation between Safran and Mines ParisTech. The aim is to develop both teaching and research in the field of aeronautical materials for high-temperature applications, at a time when both training and the invention and mastery of new materials and processes are of strategic importance.
Mines ParisTech and Safran are continuing their partnership on another Chair, launched at the end of 2014: Drive for All, which brings together teams from the Mines ParisTech robotics center, international academic partners such as Shanghai Jia Tong University, the University of Berkeley, the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and industrial partners such as PSA Peugeot Citroën, Safran, and Valeo. The aim of this Chair is to: advance knowledge of automated vehicles, develop on-board intelligence devices and put automated vehicles on the road on three continents (Asia, North America, Europe).
