The research team was formed in September 2012 by regrouping all the school's permanent researchers, who were joined by researchers recruited since then. This team is in line with the school's strategic axes. In September 2016, the team counted 8 doctors, 1 research engineer,1 associated doctor and 3 postgraduate PhD students.
In order to respect the researchers' autonomy, each researcher is also associated to a research laboratory (laboratories of our academic partners : UTBM, UBFC, UHA, INSA, UCL). Furthermore, following the agreement of an association between ESTA and UTBM in 2014, recognition of the team within UTBM is under way.
