Venue

An hour and a half from Paris by road or rail, Troyes, once the regional seat of power for the Counts of Champagne, is a city rich in art and history.
The old city center has kept intact its medieval architecture with its half-timbered houses and Champagne checkerboard façades of alternating dark-red and chalk bricks. The old city center is known locally as the 'Champagne Cork' because of its unusual shape. Present day Troyes (120,000 inhabitants including suburbs) has a vibrant cultural and artistic life, a thriving economy and many sporting activities.

The University of Technology of Troyes (UTT) belongs to a network of universities of technology with the UTC (University of Technology of Compiègne) and the UTBM (University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard). The universities of technology are public institutions awarding degrees and diplomas that are accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. They possess the advantage of combining all the assets of the engineering "Grandes Ecoles" and those of universities as they develop simultaneously and coherently three missions: education; research; transfer of technology. They maintain close links with the industrial world both on national and international levels and they are reputed for their ability to innovate, adapt and provide an education that matches the ever changing demands of industry.

The UTT represents:
2300 engineering students
127 Ph.D. students
141 researchers/lecturers
153 administrative & technical staff
35 000 m2 of new buildings/facilities

http://www.utt.fr


The UTT research teams have joined forces under the auspices of the Charles Delaunay Institute (CDI, ICD in French) and have been in association with the CNRS (National Scientific Research Centre) since 2006 as a FRE (Formation de Recherche en Evolution) : FRE 2848. Beyond the scientific excellence sought in each field of research, the objective of the CDI is to increase the synergies of its teams under the heading: "Science and Technologies for Risk Control". The CDI is composed of 7 research teams representing the main disciplines in Engineering and in Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies. They are assisted by technical staff in their research activities using state-of-the-art technology. More than 80% of the funding, excluding in-house researchers' salaries, comes from research contracts, a quarter of which corresponds to contracts with companies. The results of the research carried out can be seen both in international scientific publications and technology transfer
