Management of the consortium 2020-2024

The governance of MANUTECH-SISE LABEX 20-24 project is very close to the one which has been successfully applied during the period 2011-2019, that is, composed of three main committees (Steering, Research and Training committees). Furthermore, the project organization is completed by an International Advisory Board (IAB), according to the relevant comments of the evaluation international committee in 2015. Four internationally renowned scientists have accepted to be IAB members: Pr Marco PAGGI (IMT Lucca) in Tribology, Pr Mikhail ZHELUDKEVICH (Helmholtz Zentrum) in Materials & Surfaces, Pr Francis BERGHMANS (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) in Optics-Photonics, and Pr Gerard O’Connor (National University Ireland) in Light-Matter Interactions.

Steering Committee CoPil

The LABEX MANUTECH-SISE steering committee groups the directors of all the laboratories and founding member companies of the LABEX, or their mandated representatives :
• Project coordinator : Y. Jourlin
• Deputy coordinator : B. Normand, D. Mazuyer
• Institution representatives : UJM, MSE, ECL, ENISE, INSA, UCBLyon 1
• Directors of UMR partners (Mateis, LTDS, LabHC, LCG, LMI, LaMCoS°
• Industrial partner representative : IREIS
• GIE Equipex Manutech-USD representative
• Invited person : C. Donnet, former Labex coordinator

Scientific Committee CoS

The Scientific committee (CoS) is chaired by Pr Bernard Normand (MATEIS). This committee will ensure the strategic and scientific guidelines of the project discussed and defined within the steering committee (CoPil). The Scientific Committee coordinator will have to chair the four axis leaders and to participate to the main axis meetings. He will also have to report on the scientific activity and results of the 4 axes. The objectives are to define a common basis organization for all the axis, composed of an axis decision team involving all the LABEX MANUTECH-SISE 20-24 partners. Each axis should have the same organization with regular meetings and continuous scientific animation (seminar, PhD presentations…), in respect of the scientific guidelines defined by the CoS coordinator (and the CoPil).
