Thales and Supélec Join Forces in R&D

Thales and Supélec Join Forces in R&D

Dominique Vernay, Scientific and Technical Director of the Thales Group, and Alain Bravo, Director General of Supélec, concluded an agreement on 12 May 2005 to expand collaborative research and higher education projects and speed the transfer of knowledge and expertise between the two organisations.

The agreement formalises several years of partnership between the Thales electronics group and Supélec. Many Thales engineers have studied at Supélec, and Thales is an active participant in the engineering school's masters degree in "the Logistics of Complex Systems". Thales also allocates part of its mandatory apprenticeship tax to the school to help to fund its day-to-day operations.

Priority areas of research under the agreement are information processing, electromagnetism, RF technologies and wireless communications. Joint research projects are conducted as doctoral theses and precompetitive projects funded by France and Europe as part of European research networks and the EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.

"We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Supélec," said Dominique Vernay. "Supélec is one of Thales' long-standing research partners and contributes to the training of the talented engineers the Group requires. The agreement is part of Thales' policy of openness and partnership with research and higher education institutes. In addition, the topics covered by the agreement are a perfect fit with the System@tic Paris Région project, which Thales has submitted as a candidate for the 'centres of competitiveness1' programme in the Paris region. Three hundred industrial, academic and institutional experts in complex software and systems are involved in this project."

"This is an exemplary agreement with one of Supélec's historical industry partners," stated Alain Bravo. "Thales has supported the PERCI2 cooperative teaching and research programme since its inception in 1986, and is one of the major employers of Supélec engineering graduates. More than 700 Supélec alumni are now contributing to the Group's international development. Given the common ground in our research efforts, it is logical for Thales and Supélec to work more closely together both on bilateral research projects and as part of broader national and international research partnerships."
