According to inside source, Shanghai University Composite Materials Center is planning to work with French composite research organization IFSTTAR and LaMCoS to further their cooperation in Composite Materials research and post graduates education.

In November, last year, the smart structural materials experts Prof. Monssef Drissi-habti from French IFSTTAR, and composite material mechanics expert Prof. Philippe Boisse from LaMCoS visited Shanghai University Composite Materials Center, expressed the intent in future co-operation in scientific research. Professor Tang Zhiyong, Professor Li Aijun and associate professor Bai Ruicheng, associate professor of mechanics Guo Zhansheng participate in the discussion. They also expressed their intent to jointly work with Shanghai University to provide education program for the Composite Materials Graduate Students.


About LaMCos:

Joint research laboratory of INSA de Lyon and CNRS, and pluridisciplinary in the area of Contact and Structural Mechanics, the LaMCoS offers a broad field of competences in tribology, fast dynamic, vibratory, control, rotating machines, transmission systems and deep-drawing. A national and international scientific reputation allows its 4 research units, assisted by support staff, to take part in many national and european research projects (Institut Carnot I@L, Norma, Visper, Scanet) and to publish in the most prestigious scientific journals.    Their contractual resources, in excess of 2 million euros per year, help to make the industrial processes effective and respectful of the environment, particularly using innovative numerical methods (dynamic X-FEM, granulate X-FEM), closely related to cutting edge experiments.


The Board of Directors is asked to deliberate on a broad range of issues, with emphasis on guiding the Institute's research policy, as well as general measures regarding the Institute's operations and organisation, budget, annual activity report, contracts and tenders, subsidiary creation, and overall orientations in the areas of human resources and training.
Presided by Mr. Hubert du Mesnil, the Board comprises a total of 22 members: ten representatives of the national government, eight highly-qualified external figures selected for their competence, four representatives of Institute personnel organisations, and four substitute members. The President of the Scientific Council, Managing Director, Scientific Director, the authority assigned financial oversight and the entity's accountant all attend these sessions in a non-voting advisory capacity.
