IRT Jules Verne, the French research institute dedicated to manufacturing, brings its expertise and know-how to bear on the European stage through the conduct of R&D projects. Specialising in meeting market requirements, the Jules Verne institute works together with the strategic aeronautics, shipbuilding, energy and automotive sectors. These highly competitive industries are seeing the emergence of ambitious European programmes, which are supported by public authorities such as the European Commission’s Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development, through collaborative projects involving research and technology organisations (RTO), universities and industrial actors. Since 2015, the Jules Verne institute has taken an international turn and has set up a strategy to obtain European funding in order to bring to fruition a number of research and development projects in line with its technological roadmap.

Europe Team

To meet its ambition, the Jules Verne institute has structured its business accordingly and in 2017, it set up a team dedicated to European projects with the aim of strengthening IRT Jules Verne’s european collaborations and meeting the challenge of diversifying its funding. Its team supports IRT Jules Verne’s researchers, but where necessary, its industrial and/or academic members can be brought onboard for different projects.

 

The Europe team works hand-in-hand with R&D engineers, experts, technicians and project managers from Jules Verne institute for proposals set-up and project management.
