    • Participation in a collaboration contract, as part of IMdR, with Prédict and Sector "Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS), Contract S15309-R01H, 2017 (significant participation in the bibliographic study around advanced methods prognosis)
    • Strong involvement in a collaboration contract, within the framework of IMdR, with Prédict and Sector "Feasibility study relating to the implementation of a maintenance solution predictive ", contract S18143-P01B, 2018. (Scientific co-leader with Pr. Benoit Iung)
    • Strong involvement in a collaboration contract with Renault automotive "development of a tool for smoothing of maintenance loads", 2018/2019 (leader of the development of the algorithm and its implementation)
  • Academic research projects:
    • SAFEE - Fault and Reliable dynamic systems. (2011-2012,partners: CRAN, LAGIS, ICD)
    • APPRODYN - DYNamic reliability approaches for modeling systems critics (2010-2012, partner: EDF R&D/MRI, CRAN, INRIA Bordeaux Southwest, and UTT)
    • Participation in the european project MoDe - Maintenance on demand (8 partners europeans, 2009-2012). My role was to develop a task in the workparkage entrusted to UTT)
    • Participation in the VITTEL project (fonctional degradation modelling: Assessment of its impact on the competitiveness and reliability of the industry of
      future) funded by the Lorraine region, 2016-2017. My contribution was the degradation modeling using gamma process
    • Active participation in the joint laboratory LabCOM PHM Factory ANR-15-LCV1-0005-01, funded by the ANR in collaboration with Prédict company, 2015-2018. My role was
      especially to focus on one of the three research directions (development of algorithms for prognosis and its implementation) and supervise two postdoctoral fellows.
    • Scientific co-leader of the CAPE-COFECUB project - towards an intelligent autonomous system for maintenance optimization in an industry 4.0 context, (project Ph950 / 19) co-funded by the ANR in collaboration with the UFPE team (University Federal Republic of Pernambuco), Brazil, 2019-2022.
