These ITEs bring together research and training institutions, universities, industry and SMEs, in the spirit of public/private partnerships. Through these partnerships, IFPEN demonstrates its commitment to low-carbon energies, and its determination in the R&I fields in which it is involved.
IFPEN thereby contributes to the development of ecosystems associated with the competitiveness clusters in which it is present, supporting the emergence of new industry sectors.
ITEs led by IFPEN:
France Energies marines, led by Ifremer, brings together 54 partners and is labeled by the Mer Bretagne and Mer PACA competitiveness clusters.
This ITE aims to develop an excellence platform in Brest in the field of renewable marine energies, focusing more specifically on four of these:
- offshore wind energy,
- energy of currents and tides,
- wave energy,
- ocean thermal energy.
IFPEN will bring its expertise on offshore issues, in particular numerical simulation and the resistance of materials.
VeDeCoM, led by the Mov’eo Tec Foundation and the University of Versailles-Saint-Quentin, brings together almost 50 partners and is labeled by the Mov’eo and System@tic competitiveness clusters.
Its ambition is to become the Institute for the new sustainable individual mobility sector, focusing on two applications:
- low-carbon and connected vehicles,
- low-carbon eco-mobility.
The ITE directs its R&D towards three themes:
- electrified vehicles,
- driving delegation,
- connectivity, as well as new usages associated with services for shared mobility.
This is a multidisciplinary project, involving physicists, chemists, sociologists and economists, exploring new usages that will progressively change society.
As a member of the executive committee, IFPEN actively participates in the governance of this VeDeCoM's ITE.
