For both Safran and Centrale Lyon, this agreement reflects their commitment to establishing a long-term collaboration and also gives them a structure for the concrete expression of their joint strategy of coordinating school-industry relations in research, training, innovation and international development.

Through this partnership Safran will contribute to the definition of Centrale Lyon’s strategic objectives, and will play a role in both teaching and research. Centrale Lyon will contribute to the Safran group’s technological developments, as well as training engineers capable of making a strong contribution to its growth. Applying a joint social responsibility initiative, the partners will also conduct actions in favor of citizenship, equal opportunity, the environment and fostering diversity in access to scientific and technology studies.

Safran has already been involved in student education, through professional and career conferences, forums, plant visits, industrial application projects, internships, etc. The recently signed agreement will enable the partners to place their collaboration on a more structured basis and support more extensive cooperation.

Safran already has an "Ambassadors" program, based on a network of former students of various universities and engineering schools now working for Group companies (about 190 engineers and doctoral candidates), who mentor current students at these schools. These ambassadors will help students from Centrale Lyon define their own career goals and projects.

The Safran Foundation for Integration continues to invest in the design of an innovative wheelchair to improve the mobility of disabled persons, through the "SHIFT" project being carried out in conjunction with Centrale Lyon and other partners.

In addition, Safran will support actions to foster diversity in Centrale Lyon’s staff, an initiative that reflects the Group’s talent promotion strategy.
Centrale Lyon and Safran: a long-standing relationship based on research partnerships

Centrale Lyon has state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and carries out world-class research, nurturing solid partnerships with French manufacturers, including Safran. The school’s interdisciplinary laboratories provide high-level scientific and technological support to French industry. Acting as an innovation seedbed for the design of Safran’s aerospace and defense products, these labs meet the Group’s standards of technological excellence.

Joint work between Safran and Centrale Lyon has already resulted in a number of achievements, including:

A test cell dedicated to rotor dynamics and an external research unit in charge of vibration research: LTDS (Laboratoire de Tribologie et Dynamique des Systems), the system tribology and dynamics lab.
Research on strategies for flow control and aerodynamic instabilities in axial compressors (Coralia project): LMFA (Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides et Acoustique), the acoustics and fluid mechanics lab.
Multistage axial compressor, within the scope of the CREATE test bench: LMFA.
Close collaboration within the scope of the PHARE platform for environmental risk management on rotating machinery: LMFA.

Looking further ahead, the partners will be developing IPES, a joint laboratory between Safran and the school’s AMPERE laboratory. The general research objective of this new joint lab will be the rational use and management of systems in relationship to their environment.

In international markets, as early as 2003 Safran called on the experience of Centrale Lyon to set up a training program for Chinese engineers, designed to strengthen its role in the training of Chinese engineers and researchers. This collaboration subsequently led to the creation of the Ecole Centrale of Beijing engineering school.
