About us Study at Icam Student life at Icam Partner universities Company Research


Icam’s research vision is to foster and share scientific progress by ensuring a socially-responsible and environment-friendly transition of industries into new technologies.

Icam defines research as such:

  • Both applied and academic. Research topics are developed with industry and laboratory partners to propose innovative solutions addressing concrete technological and societal issues. This applied research perspective co-exists with an academic perspective which encourages publications and paves the way for doctoral supervision.
  • Collaborative and international. Icam forges partnerships with laboratories, companies and universities both locally and around the world for high-level collaborations on various scientific projects. Researchers also willingly collaborate on inter-site projects, between Icam campuses in France and internationally.
  • Co-financed and sustainable. Research projects are co-financed within the framework of regional, national and international funding to ensure sustainable work.
  • Integrated to the Icam engineer profile. Icam’s engineering students play key roles as actors and contributors to Icam’s research activity, with a minimum of 5-month research experience being a prerequisite for the Icam diploma.
  • Linked to the evolution of Icam’s teaching programs.

All projects share integral ecology as a common denominator – a search for innovation that is not at the expense of man and the environment. Progress is aimed at contributing to both technological and social progress, with a focus on the three key strategic research areas:

  • Energy production, storage and management
  • Innovative structures and materials
  • Societal and Technological Transition of Companies
