This center represents an equipment set dedicated to research and industry. Its purpose is to provide, for local or external industrialists and researchers, new-generation equipments such as micromoulding machines, wire-cut electrical discharge frames, femtosecond lasers and so on. This approach enables to offer huge technological means and an support staff to industrialists in order to test fabrication processes cheaply. These operations are financed via the BTR centre, the industry ministry and the industrialists who are interested in. What makes this formula attractive for research is one the one hand, the acquisition cost diminution thanks to other external financing and one the other hand the industrial proximity, particularly interesting and advantageous for students.
