Call for TILT Projects in mechanics launched by Cetim and the SATT Network - 1st edition

In order to identify innovations with strong potential for the mechanical industries, Cetim and the SATT Network launch together a call for projects to which laboratories belonging to universities, research organizations and schools located on the territory of one of the thirteen participating SATTs can answer.

The ambition of this partnership is to accelerate the maturation of technologies from the laboratories and their transfer to companies in the sector, thus giving them the means to further activate the lever of innovation to support their growth dynamics.

The projects submitted must fall within one of the twelve themes selected to meet the priority needs of the mechanical industries, ranging from sensors to modelling and energy efficiency.

The projects submitted must be based on first results that have clearly demonstrated the scientific concept. The purpose of the project must make it possible to establish that the solution is operational, that it responds to a problem and that it differs positively from other existing solutions.

Key dates of the call for projects

  • Opening date: September 20, 2017
  • Closing date: December 1, 2017

Eligible themes

  • Sensors for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT),
  • Integrity of materials and surfaces: reliable design (fatigue...),
  • Monitoring and surveillance of systems (industrial processes and/or equipment...),
  • Additive manufacturing: material characterization, digital chain upstream of additive manufacturing, product characterization,
  • Intelligent machines and processes,
  • Composite materials: design, implementation, characterization and control, fatigue of the composite,
  • Surface: sealing, corrosion resistance, surface functionalization, tribology,
  • Assembly: improving the durability of assemblies, damage criteria, multi-material assembly,
  • Sensors and Instrumentation for manufacturing processes, equipment and fluidic systems,
  • Clean processes and technologies (eco technologies...),
  • Energy efficiency of components and systems,
  • Modeling & numerical simulation of multi-physical systems.
