On October 1, 2012, Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma finalized the terms of a partnership agreement with DCNS, a global leader in naval defense with operations in civil nuclear energy and marine renewable energy. DCNS invests heavily in R&D in fields like hydrodynamics, materials, acoustic quieting, and electromagnetics. As part of the partnership, engineers working for DCNS will be invited to give talks to Phelma students on subjects related to their majors.
This brings to four the number of corporate partnerships that Phelma has entered into since June; the other three are with Amesys (a Bull company), Elsys Design, and Safran. Talks are also underway with additional companies. Phelma now boasts a 40-member-strong corporate partnership network, including long-time supporters STMicroelectronics, Areva, and EDF.
