To reinforce its composites activities, ESI has recently opened its sixth French office, grouping its expertise in this field in a single location: Bordeaux.

The new office, located in Bordeaux Aeroparc, managed by Bordeaux Technowest and the regional and departmental institutions, is ESI’s new worldwide research & development centre for the simulation of composites design, manufacturing and performance.

Why Bordeaux?

The combined interests of the Aquitaine and the Midi-Pyrénées regions have resulted in South-Western France offering a powerful competitiveness cluster for Aerospace activity in Europe: the Aerospace Valley. The region is also home to aerospace companies such as Airbus, Dassault Aviation and EADS Astrium. Bordeaux is alo a prime location for Innovation and R&D, with 11 000 researchers and the highest R&D expenditure per inhabitant in France.

ESI’s initiatives in Bordeaux

ESI’s Composites activities will see further rapid development thanks to new collaborations which will be created with local research centres. Some of ESI’s key objectives in Bordeaux are to:

– Set-up strong partnerships with the local scientific community. 
– Develop training courses in the field of composite materials. 
– Facilitate the access of enterprises in the region to ESI software and services.
– Foster innovation, especially in the aerospace and wind energy sectors.
