CEMEF – Centre for Material Forming

Research Lab of the top-level French Engineering School, MINES ParisTech and associated with the French Research Foundation, CNRS, CEMEF - Centre for Material Forming processes - studies the materials from manufacturing down to their end-use properties for various industrial applications:

  • Aeronautics,
  • Nuclear engineering,
  • Automotive industry,
  • Sustainable development,
  • Packaging...
Researches are carried out on a large range of materials: metals, synthetic and bio polymers, food stuff, composites and nanocomposites, glass, ceramics…

They aim at understanding materials behaviour at the different scales of their processing, the interaction with tools, the impact on their final properties.

Projects often mix experimental and numerical approaches.

Our aim is to develop an industrial research in direct connection with Industry and to educate students to research matters.

CEMEF is located in Sophia Antipolis, the first Technopark in Europe. It is situated on the French Riviera, 20km from Nice and Cannes.
