Constellium is a leading global supplier of high value-added aluminium products and solutions for a broad range of applications dedicated primarily to aerospace, automotive and packaging markets. Constellium Research & Technology has a long tradition of scientific research collaboration with the RWTH Aachen, in particular with the IME institute, and with European partners from the aluminium fabrication industry in the framework of former EEC funded projects. By ensuring stable collaboration with its partners under a shared cost structure, the AMAP program will allow Constellium to benefit from the results of ambitious research projects. Contributing to the development of a stronger European research platform based at RWTH Aachen is expected to be beneficial to our industry in terms of process innovation and sustainability and, also, to provide career opportunities for young talents who will be trained through research on aluminium technologies.
