As the leading French player in the fields of mechanical engineering innovation and R&D, CETIM has built up a wide network of partners. Its engineers and technicians operate in more than 30 countries each year.

R&D function is carried out either within specific sectors or cutting across sector boundaries, and within either a national or an international context. It embraces a range of complementary aspects, including prospective studies in conjunction with international scientific communities, R&D concerning all areas of mechanical engineering, industry-specific studies and projects, and the large-scale federative technological projects.

CETIM provides a comprehensive array of services to the mechanical engineering industry, from consulting to testing and from engineering to training in new skills.

CETIM is a member of the Carnot institutes network, and a founding member of the French Alliance for the Industry of the Future.

As the Technical Centre for Mechanical Industries, the mission of CETIM is to increase competitiveness of the companies, to promote advanced technologies to its members. As technical centre, one important mission of CETIM is the technology transfer to their industrial members. CETIM is a leading testing laboratory and centre of expertise for the Mechanical Industry, with particular expertise in hydraulics as well as in high pressure vessels structural health monitoring. In this project, CETIM will be associated with UTC (University of Technology of Compiègne), which is a public institution specialized in science and technology, the main missions of which are education, research and transfer of technology, with a University Chair in hydraulics.
