Tec 21, the Laboratoire d'Excellence for mechanical and process engineering


Our scientific community regroups 7 research laboratories located in Grenoble (France), and is financed by the French government as part of its "investissement d'avenir" (investment for the future) programme.


With 250 permanent scientists specialised in fluid and solid mechanics, soft matter physics and process engineering, we develop experimental and numerical tools to contribute to technological innovation in the fields of energy management and conservation, propulsion and aerospace, process engineering, civil engineering, natural risks assessment, biorefinery, and health.

We believe that working together towards an innovative multidisciplinary approach to science is essential to tackle challenging questions, as well as to develop new solutions for engineering applications.

For many years, our community has been involved in diverse applications, collaborating with industry and public authorities in 7 different applications areas:
