Issues

Mobility, energy, environment, health, autonomy, education, but also maintenance of industrial employment and relocation are societal and economic issues for which mechanics and robotics develop solutions. The industrial stakes are also considerable: industrial competitiveness (issues of innovation and productivity), upgrading the skills of managers and workers, customization of products requiring new design and manufacturing processes, management of raw materials, eco-design, additive manufacturing. Another challenge is to maintain specialty engineering skills that are uncommon in the major engineering schools.

France has nearly 30,100 companies and 608,000 employees with a turnover of 114.8 billion euros in this sector. Mechanics and robotics are France’s largest industrial employer (21%).
