General framework of the activity
“Technocampus” is a set of mutualized technological research platforms dedicated to advanced manufacturing. They collocate high-performance materials and industrial & academic players that work on strategic sectors. They are located on a key area for the industry of the future: the manufacturing. They encourage interdisciplinary approach, collaborative R&D. Today they are 4 platforms: Technocampus Composites, Technocampus Ocean, Technocampus Smart Factory and Technocampus Alimentation. The Technocampus platforms are based on public/private original model. They are managed, animated and promoted by Solutions&co.
Technocampus Ocean (TCO) is a mutualized technological research platform dedicated to marine structures and metallic materials. It encompasses industrial & academic players that work on developing innovative manufacturing technologies for shipbuilding and MRE. TCO offers pooled resources, encourage interdisciplinary approach, collaborative R&D and technology transfer. Technocampus Composites contributes to the excellence of Pays de la Loire region in the field of maritime industry.
Specific skills in the MRE field
- The TCO offers a colocalization of industrial and academic research teams working on the development of innovative technologies in the field of steel structures and manufacturing, among others for the naval and renewable marine energy sectors
- This colocalisation allows promoting exchanges and then the emergence of collaborative R & D projects between academic and industrial research teams.
Many WEAMEC partners are tenants of Technocampus OCEAN.
Training in the MRE field
The courses of WEAMEC professionnal Training operated by Centrale Nantes and Nantes University are mainly taught at the TCO.
