About

We accelerate science, technological research and transfer to the aeronautics and space industries for the development of reliable, robust, certifiable and sustainable innovative solutions.

At our sites in Toulouse, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Sophia Antipolis and Montreal, we offer an integrated collaborative environment composed of engineers, researchers, experts and PhD students from academia and industry for research projects and R&T services supported by technological platforms around 4 axes: advanced manufacturing technologies, greener technologies, smart technologies and methods & tools for the development of complex systems.
Our developed technologies meet the needs of industry, integrating the results of academic research.

We are a private research foundation, supported by the French government, which funds projects in proportion to the industrial contribution and defines the regulatory framework of the foundation.
