I@L brings together 13 laboratories, a research centre and 1,000 researchers under the supervision of Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, INSA Lyon, CNRS and ECAM LaSalle. Its mission is to promote and develop engineering sciences in three key areas:
I@L aims to improve and increase the range of integrated engineering services for companies in the transport, energy and healthcare technology sectors with the aim of streamlining and accelerating the transition from research results to innovation and technology transfer. The goal is to effectively and sustainably boost their regional, national and international economic competitiveness. There is a particular focus on SMEs and international development.
Many industrial companies partner with us in our research work, notably through CIFRE thesis grant agreements. These include EDF, Schneider-Electric, PSA Peugeot-Citroen, TOTAL, CETIM, Hispano-Suiza, Messier-Bugatti, Flender-Graffenstaden, TIMKEN, SANOFI, BMI, Thermi-Lyon, Alliance and Lypsis.
LabECAM is a member of MANUTECH, a consortium of companies, research laboratories associated with higher education institutions and competitiveness clusters located in Saint-Etienne and Lyon. MANUTECH aims to create, develop and operate a tool capable of producing and characterising multiscale model surfaces at high speed. Learn more
Ingé’LySE, the only centre of its kind in France, opened on 20 October 2016 with the key mission of structuring fundamental and cross-disciplinary research that supports major technological, economic and societal issues. The federation brings together more than 2,000 people from 23 engineering science research laboratories in Lyon and Saint-Etienne, including ECAM LaSalle’s research centre, LabECAM.
Consortium Industrie Recherche sur les Transmissions de puissance (CIRTrans)
The CIRTRANS research network (Consortium Industrie – Recherche sur les TRANSmissions de puissance) is a centre of expertise in the scientific, technical and industrial fields of mechanical power transmissions.
CIRTRANS aims to bring together stakeholders in France pursuing research and design activities in the field of mechanical power transmissions. The aim is to work together through coordinated research projects addressing concrete problems faced by industrial partners.
The CIRTrans consortium brings together the following businesses and institutions:

The CIRTRANS consortium has taken shape over the years thanks to the knowledge network that has been built around a gear specialization. Its mission is to develop long-lasting expertise by bringing together people and resources around one common goal: power transmission.
The consortium allows business partners to develop together by pooling resources while still benefitting from the research potential of the associate schools and laboratories. Companies are also able to develop their skills and knowledge through research projects, or even come together on shared methods and tools.
The project that started 2 years ago, allows teams to reimagine the necessary developments to create tomorrow’s transmissions. The first project include 2 research dissertations that cover epicyclic gearing thermodynamics and sound reduction. At the same time, a project to standardize calculating and method development tools is being studied.
ECAM LaSalle also plays an active role in competitiveness clusters seeking to boost their research programmes:
