An key expertise center

FEMTO Engineering is the center for technological development of FEMTO-ST Research Institute and is supported by the partnership foundation Franche-Comté’ Innov, created by the University of Franche-Comté in 2013.

 Based in Besançon, it moved in september 2014 into the new TEMIS Science building in Franche-Comté’s technological cluster known as TEMIS Microtechniques.

Resolutely turned towards industry, it serves as the interface between the research conducted by FEMTO-ST and the need for innovation in industry. FEMTO Engineering thus offers specific and high-level developments based on the research conducted at FEMTO-ST.

Firmly anchored in the economic landscape of Franche-Comté, its field of action is entirely in keeping with the region’s industrial tradition and its offshoots: clock and watch making, spectacle manufacturing, the automotive industry, transportation and energy.

FEMTO Engineering serves both local companies and large international groups.
