The added value of academic and industrial partnerships
Universities and engineering schools
The INSIS laboratories are mostly co-managed with universities or engineering schools. The latter are partners with strong specific features. CNRS personnel account for a quarter of the permanent staff of the INSIS units, mainly made up of lecturer-researchers, thus ensuring a strong link between research and training.
The INSIS laboratories are heavily involved in the national network of doctoral schools in engineering sciences.
Interactions with the Epic Institutes
The INSIS maintains close links with various public establishments of industrial and commercial natures (CEA, DGA, Onera, Cnes, CSTB, IRSN, Ifsttar, etc.), making it possible to increase the interdisciplinarity and complementarity of the skills within its laboratories.
The INSIS is highly focused on socio-economic issues. So, over the years it has forged strong partnerships with various players in industry. Priorities are the creation of joint laboratories with major groups (Thales, PSA, Total, etc.) or SME-ETI, encouraging the creation of businesses or the establishment of strategic partnerships, both nationally and internationally. The INSIS is also involved in competitiveness clusters, the Carnot Institutes, technological research institutes (IRT) and institutes for energy transition (ITE).
