Our Scientific Council
In 2013, we created the International Scientific Council of Constellium to nurture and broaden our perspective on emerging domains, key drivers, and technological trends related to our strategic activities. The council comprises six academic members from laboratories and universities around the world.
Our innovation teams at C-TEC and the Plymouth Hub work closely with the International Scientific Council to identify trends and upcoming opportunities. They provide us with high-level advisory support and recommendations regarding R&D, approaches to innovation, research collaborations, and enriching our scientific network.
For example, we consulted the council about 3D printing and additive manufacturing. And as Industry 4.0 becomes a reality, the council has helped guide our decisions on using big data, the internet of things, and autonomous robots to maximize performance.
