Our Values








researcher @IRT, seconded by @AirbusDS

What I like at IRT is that we do a lot of experimental work. I’m one of those scientific engineers who thinks that you can’t understand anything if you’re too far removed from the experimental side. The resources are available at IRT & the technicians, engineers & scientists are very close to each other. It’s really the ideal situation.
I’m free to organise my time. I go to Airbus Defence&Space a few times a week and I involve them as much as possible. I can also teach at ISAE-SUPAERO & ICAM.


research engineer @IRT

What I have always liked at IRT is the relationship between basic research and industrial application. We meet a whole host of different profiles: people like me who come directly from the lab, and people with strong industrial experience. I learn a lot about many different subjects, and these exchanges are really rewarding.
The work environment and atmosphere are very pleasant: we have specific objectives but are also encouraged to look at more remote ideas and patent development.
