Spotlight on our strategic research areas
From precision manufacturing and renewable energies to digitalization technologies, we provide the expertise, technologies, processes, and services that can add a decisive advantage to all our industrial partners.

Digitalization

Digital technologies are growing at an unprecedented pace, fed by a web of interconnected devices (the Internet of Things) and smart machinery (Industry 4.0). They are rapidly forcing every business sector to reinvent itself—from energy to precision agriculture, to personalized health and manufacturing.

 

Precision manufacturing

Precision manufacturing technology has captured the imagination of every industry segment—from aerospace to watchmaking. Our innovation in manufacturing techniques such as 3D printing, combined with our commitment to industry 4.0, is a step toward maintaining Europe’s flexible and competitive precision manufacturing industry.

 

The future of Energy

As energy evolves to meet the ever-expanding needs of the 21st century, CSEM is at the forefront of technological and digital developments across the fields of renewable energies and energy management services. We are using advanced technologies to help our customers thrive throughout this smarter landscape, optimizing renewable energies and their integration, storage, monitoring, control, and maintenance.

ONERA—The French aerospace lab
CSEM has the advantage of being used to working with industry and brought us their expertise in the domain of nanosurface engineering.
ONERA, the French aerospace lab, is developing—together with CSEM—new pressure-sensitive coatings as unique tools for providing pressure measurements over the entire surface of a model subjected to aerodynamic testing in wind tunnels. In this project, the main objective is to design a specific pressure-sensitive coating able to measure the fast pressure variations (>1 kHz) observed in an unsteady aerodynamic flow. CSEM's technological contribution complements the technical wind tunnel expertise and experience of ONERA.
