This € 1.5 million agreement is geared towards the study of civil engineering structures and their behaviour. The holder of this chair, Frédéric Dufour, heads the Training/research links at Ense3 and is the deputy head of the 3SR (Soils, Solids, Structures - Risks) laboratory.
A work framework for the next five years Three EDF engineering units based in the Rhône-Alpes region are involved in this chair: the General Technical Division (DTG) in Grenoble, the Hydraulic Engineering Centre (CIH) in Chambery and the Thermal and the Nuclear Studies and Projects Department (SEPTEN) in Villeurbanne. There is a history of long-standing cooperation between these EDF units and the 3SR laboratory through research agreements, the funding of doctoral theses and internships, the involvement of EDF engineers in training students and off-job training of EDF employees. The signature of the PERENITI Chair will be a further step in this cooperation.
Socially responsible actions This scientific partnership between EDF and Grenoble INP Partner Foundation once again proves the excellent performance of the Grenoble ecosystem, renowned for its adept merging of research, teaching and industry. The Grenoble INP Partner Foundation intends to use a third of the chair’s budget to fund socially responsible actions aimed essentially at promoting access to engineering professions.
Funding jointly provided by three EDF engineering units With a five-year budget of 1.5 million euros, PERENITI boasts the most resources of the five industrial excellence chairs signed by the Grenoble INP Partner Foundation since its creation four years ago. The funding is jointly provided by the three aforementioned EDF engineering units. Inauguration on 19 March 2014 This industrial chair was inaugurated on 19 March 2014 at Ense ³.
