At Arts et Métiers, the shared objectives of research and industry partners drive many of our collaborations. They fuel the development of projects and skills in order to achieve innovative advances in research applications and technologies in response to rapid technological changes. This approach enables Arts et Métiers to maintain the highest level of expertise and to be involved in multiple European Projects, both as a partner and as a coordinator.
Overview of Arts et Métiers projects that are currently funded by the European Union’s prestigious Horizon 2020 program, including Research and Innovation Actions (RIA), Innovation Actions (IA), ERCs, and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions:
STEADIEST (Supercritical composiTE mAin DrIvE SysTem) : its aim is to design, develop and determine the flight qualifications of a supercritical composite shaft drive line for a tiltrotor main drive system. Our researchers are in charge of technical solutions for energy dissipation and for the minimization of vibration during speed changes.
IoTwins (Distributed Digital Twins for industrial SMEs: a big-data platform) aims to build a reference architecture for the development and deployment of distributed and edge-enabled digital twins of production plants and processes using data related to the manufacturing and facility management optimization domains.
ASSALA (Advanced Simulation Solutions Applied to Quality Control of Laser Deposited Metals) : the main objective is to develop a methodology to predict defect generation likelihood induced by the interaction of robot inaccuracies and thermal effects during the Laser Wire Deposition (LWD) process of Titanium, integrating deterministic and advanced statistical models applied on the manufacturing of new generation aero engine structures.
UPSCALE (Upscaling Product development Simulation Capabilities exploiting Artificial inteLligence for Electrified vehicles) : the goal of this project is to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) methods directly into traditional physics-based Computer Aided Engineering (CAE)-software and –methods in order to reduce the development time and increase the performance of electric vehicles.
ReMap (Real-time Condition-based Maintenance for Adaptive Aircraft Maintenance Planning) : The goal of this project is to help reinforce European leadership in aeronautics by developing an open-source solution for aircraft maintenance, the Integrated Fleet Health Management (IFHM) system. By replacing fixed-interval inspections with adaptive condition-based interventions, ReMAP will have an estimated benefit to the European aviation of more than €700 million per year, due to a direct decrease in maintenance costs, reduced unscheduled aircraft maintenance events, and increased aircraft availability.
TeaM Cables (European Tools and Methodologies for an efficient ageing management of nuclear power plant cables): this was a research project in the field of nuclear safety and long-term operation.
DynPT (Development of measurement and calibration techniques for dynamic pressures and temperatures): Focused on the development of measurement and calibration techniques for dynamic pressures and temperatures.
MIGRATE (Massive InteGRATion of power Electronic devices): the aim of MIGRATE is to find solutions for the technological challenges the Power Electronics- interfaced generators grid is faced with currently and especially in the future.
PARSIFAL (Prandtlplane ARchitecture for the Sustainable Improvement of Future AirpLanes): its main objective is to establish the scientific and engineering basis for improving the civil air transport of the future by introducing an innovative aircraft, known as the “PrandtlPlane”. This aircraft has a box-wing configuration, which gives it more aerodynamic efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
ESPESA (Electromechanical Systems and Power Electronics for Sustainable Applications): its mission is to strengthen the research activity and to implement a Technology Transfer & Innovation Management strategy at the Centre for Applied Research in Electrical Engineering and Sustainable Development of our partner institution.
FULLCOMP (FULLy integrated analysis, design, manufacturing and health-monitoring of COMPosite structures): this project allows Early Stage Researchers to work in an international framework to develop integrated analysis tools to improve the design of composite structures.
ColRobot (Collaborative Robotics for Assembly and Kitting in Smart Manufacturing): a project that designed a new generation of robotics technologies intended to physically interact with humans in a shared workspace, based on their ability to sense their environment.
SOTERIA (Safe lOng TERm operation of light water reactors based on Improved understanding of radiation effects in nuclear structural mAterials) proposes a comprehensive research approach to contribute to the safety of today’s operating nuclear power plants.
PATO (Porous material Analysis Toolbox): the purpose of this project is to improve reactive porous material models by validating fundamental developments and to implement them in an open source simulation tool to enable process optimization and guide innovation. This project focused, in particular, on the applications in the design of efficient and optimized thermal protection systems for space exploration vehicles, as well as the production of bio-hydrocarbon and bio-carbon from lignocellulosic biomass.
