IMT Nord Europe, School and Institut Mines-Télécom School and Research Centres

IMT is a public institution for higher education and research for innovation. IMT ensures that the skills of its schools respond to 21st century transformation in major digital, industrial, energy and ecological fields by reflecting on their impacts on industry of the future, the city, health and personal autonomy.

Digital technology, energy, environment and industry

Institut Mines-Télécom is committed to supporting companies and society in general in the major digital, energy, environmental and industrial transitions of the 21st century.

In response to the technological challenges resulting from these transitions, IMT Nord Europe is developing research in its three major areas of expertise supported by three Centres for Education, Research and Innovation (CERI): Energy and Environment, Digital Systems, and Materials and Processes. A human and social sciences department also analyses the transformations of organisations in relation to the digitalisation and internationalisation of companies.

A multidisciplinary approach

Each CERI addresses the three key missions of IMT Nord Europe at its own level and in its own area of expertise. As a result, the fundamentally multidisciplinary research is quickly incorporated into the courses taught and also stimulates innovation. One of IMT Nord Europe’s objectives is to provide education through research by awarding doctorate degrees.

The multidisciplinary approach is not limited to CERI centres, since responding to complex technological challenges requires the perspectives of several disciplines. The research strategy therefore encourages multidisciplinary cooperation between CERI centres and with laboratories of other Institut Mines-Télécom schools.

The dissemination of knowledge is a key objective, which is achieved both by publishing scientific articles in the best scientific journals and through science outreach with the public.
