ENSAM supports the organization of the conference both with an important financial support and with the active participation of Francisco (Paco) Chinesta , professor at the PIMM, and of Claire Mandon in charge of the sponsoring.
The Ecole Nationale des Arts et Métiers has been founded in 1780 and since then has been committed to meeting constantly evolving industrial challenges and societal issues. Its primary task is to train multi disciplinary engineers in the field of sustainable technology: engineers capable not only of designing environmentally friendly products and systems, but also of overseeing an industrial organisation by controlling the risks and costs.
With 2000 Graduates per year and 14 laboratories spread out over its eight campuses, ESAM encompasses all the scientific disciplines necessary to develop new technologies. The school's close ties to companies enable it to meet the needs of modern industrial environments. In an increasingly competitive environment, characterised by rapid technological advances, the industry must be ever more innovative. In response to this fundamental issue, ENSAM develops and promotes advanced research related to the major issues of the industry of the future, applied to four main sectors: transport, health, energy, and construction.
