Technical Project Manager for a H2020 European project
Chef de projet technique pour projet H2020
IMT Atlantique is a top-level engineering school, a technical university, under the aegis of the Ministry of Industry and the digital sector formed from the merger of two renowned schools (Télécom Bretagne and E?cole des Mines de Nantes). It focuses on digital technology, energy and the environment with the objective of contributing to economic development through education, outstanding research and innovation. Since its creation on January 1, 2017, IMT Atlantique has inherited all of the research and innovation activities of Télécom Bretagne and École des Mines de Nantes. This new establishment comprises 13 departments of teaching and research, involved in six research labs. With more than 1000 publications each year (400 of which are A Rank), the research at IMT Atlantique is carried out by 290 permanent researchers and lecturers, 110 non-permanent researchers and over 300 doctoral students. The research production places IMT Atlantique among the top 10 in France.
IMT Atlantique is seeking a technical project manager for the H2020 European funded ASSISTANT project (3-years). The ASSISTANT (LeArning and robuSt deciSIon SupporT systems for agile mANufacTuring environments) consortium is composed of eleven academic and industrial partners combining key skills in artificial intelligence, optimization, manufacturing, industrial engineering, edge computing and robotics. ASSISTANT aims to create intelligent digital twins through the joint use of machine learning (ML), optimization, simulation and domain models. The resulting tools will design and operate complex collaborative and reconfigurable production systems based on data collected from various sources such as IoT devices. ASSISTANT will experiment this methodology on a significant panel of use cases selected for their relevance in the current context of the digital transformation of production in major manufacturing sectors undergoing rapid transformations like energy, industrial equipment, and automotive sectors which already make extensive use of digital twins. ASSISTANT targets a significant increase in flexibility and reactivity, product/process quality, and in the robustness of manufacturing systems, by integrating human and machine intelligence in a sustainable learning relationship.
The Technical Manager will assist the coordinator (IMT Atlantique) in monitoring and integrating the technical work on the project. S/He will work in close collaboration with the coordinator. The Technical Manager will be employed by and for the project and will be responsible for:
The job will be located on the campus of IMT Atlantique in Nantes, France, and will be part of the DAPI (Automation, Production and Computer Sciences Department).
