Egis takes a proactive stance to attend to its customers' needs and is currently a partner on more than 10 national and European research projects.
A few significant examples:
- Climate change and infrastructure vulnerability
For the past 4 years, Egis and its partners (SANEF, ASF, LCPC, Météo-France) have been working actively on the impact of climate change on infrastructure vulnerability. This research has resulted in a concrete risk management tool which works in simulation and alert mode. For more information, see article RGRA N°854 in the section
PROPICE - "Stealthy construction"
– Construction management aimed at minimising impact on users and nearby residents.
Reducing congestion and nuisances for users during transportation infrastructure renovation projects is a growing and complex challenge. A consortium of major players which includes world leaders (Bouygues, Colas, Autoroute du Sud de la France, LCPC and CSTB) have worked alongside Egis to tackle this complicated challenge.
- Collaborative work using an 3D interactive digital model.
Since 2006, Egis has coordinated a consortium which is made up of several of the world's leading companies in the industry (including Vinci, Bouygues, Eiffage, CSTB, etc.) and is the winner of a call for projects from France's National Research Agency (ANR). The aim of this research project is to develop a virtual 3D concurrent civil engineering model to aid in designing and building infrastructures.
Egis is a member of the European construction platform and participates in the European Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
Through the involvement of Egis Mobility, Egis is a partner of the RCI project
(Road Charging Interoperability) which aims to set the specifications of the European electronic toll collection in order to implement the interoperability directive.
