Thank you and has good afternoon
00:00:02
everyone or like to to present to the
00:00:07
micro nearing institute. So I'll start
00:00:11
with a brief introduction where do we
00:00:13
come from then I'll have a few slides
00:00:15
on our institute then and like to take
00:00:19
this opportunity to present you are a
00:00:22
new initiative we have that is about
00:00:25
manufacturing. So where do we come
00:00:27
from. So you probably all know that the
00:00:30
roots of Mike reengineering our pretty
00:00:33
local along the should ask and you
00:00:36
recognise here the the robots of the
00:00:39
eighteen century that done by yeah
00:00:41
exactly the whole the writer musician
00:00:44
and brought "'em" and they were already
00:00:45
actually programmable robots at at that
00:00:48
time. And I also wanted to pick up I
00:00:53
kind hard time do you plug a we did a
00:00:55
lot of inventions and among them so is
00:00:58
successful self winding perpetual
00:01:01
watches introduction of the grounds for
00:01:03
repeating watches first shock
00:01:05
protection for balance be you vote and
00:01:08
actually those inventions made in the
00:01:11
you know early nineteen centuries us
00:01:14
entries are still used to that you you
00:01:17
can learn more about that if you go to
00:01:19
the music that it's twelve mission then
00:01:21
here I'll show you a one of our success
00:01:26
story that myself and you could the
00:01:28
whole you already mentioned this
00:01:30
morning which is the change of the
00:01:33
spiral of used in in watches from the
00:01:38
traditional a lowly all the unified
00:01:41
that was invented by shot it well
00:01:43
you're on who receive the noble prize
00:01:46
in nineteen twenty one year before
00:01:48
Einstein by the way by actually yes so
00:01:52
the conspire with all the problems of
00:01:54
temperature depends that have to be
00:01:56
sold to actually reach the same to
00:01:58
remind us stability has we have within
00:02:01
for today is a spirals are in menu
00:02:06
watches and you see on the on the top
00:02:08
right to us or attic Philippe watch I
00:02:11
think that about ninety percent of
00:02:12
their watches are now using this
00:02:15
silicon spiral you also see that in
00:02:18
under brands what I want to show here
00:02:23
is that you know this work as mentioned
00:02:25
the by purpose of the like this morning
00:02:27
start in in about two two thousand
00:02:30
three and the facility to produce those
00:02:33
spiral out was actually started if I'm
00:02:36
not wrong in a twenty thirteen so about
00:02:40
ten years be you between the idea here
00:02:43
and the construction of that facility
00:02:45
so just a message that you know the
00:02:48
collaboration between academia and
00:02:51
industry is a long term collaboration
00:02:54
and that really has to last from the
00:02:56
already a feasibility to the production
00:02:59
I also would like to point out here
00:03:03
that you know first court what was
00:03:05
actually invented in and shut down in
00:03:07
the seventies. And like to show
00:03:09
actually the first prototype that you
00:03:11
see on the left corner here with all
00:03:15
the discrete components and at that
00:03:18
time using will quarks and some
00:03:21
electronics at that time it consumed
00:03:23
already very little current only ten
00:03:25
micrograms. And and you see also on the
00:03:30
left on the right button right the
00:03:33
first commercial parts wristwatch which
00:03:35
was the beat at twenty one in the
00:03:37
nineteen seventies. I'm not sure that
00:03:40
so I could announce that the first
00:03:42
connected to watch was actually
00:03:44
invented in in Switzerland or in the
00:03:47
shared tell maybe I don't know
00:03:48
something that we have to clarify then
00:03:54
you move on now to present you are
00:03:55
institute we are one institute but we
00:03:59
are on two sides on the left you see
00:04:03
decides in those and here you recognise
00:04:05
the collects learning centre and the
00:04:08
white building is actually the that's
00:04:11
Monica technique the BM building where
00:04:13
most of our activity takes place in in
00:04:16
those and we are about three hundred
00:04:19
forty five people working there was
00:04:21
fifteen and seventeen professors. And
00:04:24
since two thousand nine IMT of not
00:04:28
shutdown university was transferred to
00:04:30
EPFL creating the first of sight campus
00:04:34
of EPFL inertia out. And in two
00:04:37
thousand thirteen that I empty initial
00:04:41
tell was transferred in the new
00:04:43
building that you see on the right that
00:04:45
was actually opened officially in the
00:04:48
at twenty fourteen so two years ago.
00:04:50
And from the five initial lambs we grew
00:04:53
up up to date to about eleven laps
00:04:56
today was about more actually quite
00:04:58
more than two hundred people working
00:05:00
there in Michael city in no shape to so
00:05:03
altogether we are the largest institute
00:05:05
of the school of engineering five
00:05:07
hundred forty five people twenty five
00:05:09
lance twenty eight professors more than
00:05:12
two hundred PHD students and seven
00:05:14
hundred fifty bay jeweller and master
00:05:17
students. We also have a very long
00:05:20
tradition of collaboration with
00:05:22
industry as you will see we are active
00:05:28
in the following fields grouping the
00:05:32
optics and for tonics down to ageing
00:05:35
for activities also around micro and
00:05:38
nanotechnology related to man's one
00:05:41
ends and also micro and then all
00:05:43
electronics. But also a micro
00:05:46
manufacturing and robotics. Um it's
00:05:50
actually not that easy to define what
00:05:53
might reengineering is I like to say
00:05:55
it's the art of creating designing
00:05:58
building building is an important part
00:06:00
of our activity we like to build things
00:06:03
using maybe two components machines and
00:06:06
more more complex systems always having
00:06:09
in mind all for data nobles devices is
00:06:12
systems have to go to production at
00:06:14
some point actually a quite a large
00:06:17
number of devices or products to they
00:06:21
are coming from my car engineering and
00:06:24
use different market manufacturing
00:06:27
technologies the most important aspect
00:06:32
of this field is therefore the inter
00:06:35
disciplinary to mark reengineering
00:06:37
includes all kinds of elements coming
00:06:40
from electronics computing chemistry
00:06:43
mechanics optics and material science.
00:06:46
And probably this is the reason why
00:06:49
actually students like quite so the
00:06:52
might clip technique section which is a
00:06:54
quite highly successful curriculum as
00:06:56
you can see here on the bottom left a
00:07:01
lot you see the number of make sure and
00:07:04
master students over the year. And you
00:07:06
see that was a a pretty a steep
00:07:09
increase starting at seven four fifty
00:07:11
seven in two two thousand nine in
00:07:14
reaching to they more than seven
00:07:16
hundred fifty students. And this roles
00:07:19
actually comes mostly from the bachelor
00:07:22
students that you see a from two
00:07:24
thousand twelve it grew and this you
00:07:27
see actually on the in the tables on
00:07:29
their right plots if you look at the
00:07:32
blue curved goals are the fruits your
00:07:35
bachelor students that actually almost
00:07:38
doubled from the year two thousand nine
00:07:40
to to day where they reach about three
00:07:43
hundred twenty so wants a successful
00:07:46
curriculum on top you see the pictures
00:07:48
of this sixty four master degree award
00:07:51
in two thousand fourteen and the latest
00:07:53
eighty four master degree that we
00:07:56
delivered last year you see also that
00:07:59
probably in the coming years we
00:08:01
probably need to buy a wide angle
00:08:03
because the pictures gaining broader
00:08:06
and broader here alright so I I won't
00:08:11
go into all the details of the labs I
00:08:13
just so you actually the for a for
00:08:16
competence that are making the IMT
00:08:20
starting with the activity in optics
00:08:22
platonic sent imaging this really
00:08:25
covers from this about Scott active in
00:08:29
seven lab so covers from micro optics
00:08:32
to optical value medical optical
00:08:36
activities of optical fibre last
00:08:39
morning cannot afford tonics by to
00:08:41
provide the lab professor already a
00:08:44
mess and by the way papa so much that
00:08:46
is today I wore a director of the
00:08:48
section of the nickel technique taking
00:08:50
over from professor she also more
00:08:54
applied for tonics office was a and
00:08:57
nonlinear optics and for tonics by the
00:09:02
prophets upside this hour in that you
00:09:04
see this all this morning and finally
00:09:06
the biomedical imaging lab of professor
00:09:10
ones that but for activity is really
00:09:14
around micro technology doing men's and
00:09:17
then is nanotechnology technology doing
00:09:21
a comic force microscope microphone we
00:09:25
meetings also doing some thin film
00:09:27
electronics whizz a flexible ends
00:09:30
tractable a electronics office so that
00:09:33
who by a man's microphone really extend
00:09:36
sell chips the lab professor or no and
00:09:40
we heard this morning all the activity
00:09:41
of office of the voice one I wanna go
00:09:44
back to that again professor shot shape
00:09:47
active in men's and more and more
00:09:48
towards probably may have on soft man's
00:09:51
I'll show you a video just in a second
00:09:53
of of his activity and purpose of Glenn
00:09:56
we have active in men's and then design
00:09:58
mostly for sensors and oscillator and
00:10:01
looking at fundamental noise processes
00:10:04
micro and analogue electronics and that
00:10:09
we groups about four lance unhappy also
00:10:12
to present here and you have that just
00:10:14
started actually engender read this
00:10:16
year the lab of professor it what bush
00:10:18
affable called the quantum
00:10:20
architectural and he's active in
00:10:22
development of hardware software
00:10:24
systems that are based on quantum
00:10:26
devices he did a lot of work in a
00:10:29
single photon avalanche devices the lab
00:10:33
of professor feast of by the PV land
00:10:36
very active lab in fort oval takes in
00:10:38
film silicon technology is also
00:10:41
actually leading the group that is
00:10:44
active XCS and called the PV centre and
00:10:48
here is a nice way to do technology
00:10:50
transfer for early resort to more
00:10:54
applied research at CSM my own lab call
00:10:58
the icy lab where we're actively look
00:11:01
for our low noise analogue and RFC moss
00:11:03
IC design device modelling and
00:11:06
semiconductor device modelling the
00:11:09
profit the lab of professor fancy in
00:11:12
active in a traditional electronic
00:11:14
circuit but also positioning systems
00:11:17
like GPS and control wideband system
00:11:20
and finally some activities of peter
00:11:23
flights in semiconductor image sensors
00:11:25
robotics are covers about three labs
00:11:31
but it's not a broader a group but
00:11:33
those are the ones that are affiliated
00:11:37
to were micro engineering institute so
00:11:42
active in learning and dynamical system
00:11:45
was the the lab professor would be yeah
00:11:47
the that you feel and or active in by
00:11:50
you inspired robotics officer Lola in
00:11:53
parallel robots and friction as viewing
00:11:56
and so on and prefer someone that
00:11:58
active in making sure more by a robots
00:12:01
finally the last one is the activity
00:12:08
within makeup run and manufacturing
00:12:10
that we groups for lambs two of them
00:12:14
are actually sponsored chair sponsored
00:12:16
by generation a generous donation of
00:12:20
industry the first one is the that that
00:12:22
Philippe share in micro make any
00:12:23
comment or or logical design this is
00:12:27
held by Seymour in nine looking into
00:12:29
new micro make and this is like to
00:12:31
watch industry the second sponsored
00:12:34
chair is sponsored by Ishmael and it's
00:12:36
a cold the gullet yeah lab is a very
00:12:39
new that started about two years ago
00:12:42
and it's held by even been well working
00:12:46
on multi scale manufacturing
00:12:47
technologies we also see the activity
00:12:50
in make control makes out of the
00:12:51
integrated actuators amount of
00:12:53
usability yeah and the activity in
00:12:57
production design market system
00:12:59
packaging of later he's at and marks on
00:13:03
there alright that let me show you one
00:13:08
I picked up one topic here that was
00:13:11
recently shown I call it IMT foreclose
00:13:15
the development all of very of a gentle
00:13:19
tractable electronic reaper and I'll
00:13:22
show you actually a video hopefully
00:13:23
this will work. So let's see well that
00:13:29
can like that and explain how how this
00:13:31
works We developed a new robotic
00:13:33
gripper that can grasp almost any
00:13:35
shaped object. It's able to grasp
00:13:38
extremely delicate objects in front of
00:13:40
objects yet at the same time it's
00:13:41
strong enough to lift heavy objects the
00:13:43
other T these devices that we combine
00:13:45
to functionalities which have been
00:13:46
studied before division also is an
00:13:49
electrocution into one single device
00:13:52
that as the two functionality it once
00:13:54
things to the particular patterning of
00:13:56
the the current services are two finger
00:13:58
grouper finger one finger to the
00:14:01
Singers are structured balsa locals
00:14:03
with specially designed shape of
00:14:05
electrodes and then the allowed two
00:14:06
things to happen one is a vending shape
00:14:09
that allows us to get close the object
00:14:10
and then we use a special shape at the
00:14:12
end to get a very strong holding thanks
00:14:14
to like tradition advantage of these
00:14:16
devices or you can make that many
00:14:18
different types of objects many shapes
00:14:20
for example you can grab it Piece of
00:14:22
paper beautiful and maybe you can grow
00:14:24
and then we can go any type of object.
00:14:26
And is up just can be also very for joy
00:14:28
because they make it means we look very
00:14:30
softly complied with the shape of the
00:14:32
object. And so we can actually been
00:14:34
used in general but hands an artificial
00:14:36
hand for robot companion could also use
00:14:39
in the food industry could be used in
00:14:41
space to catch to brief this really
00:14:44
buys a like a weight and the scalable
00:14:47
what we can find the that was the
00:14:50
operators on divine brown this is a
00:14:52
step forward compared to the past in
00:14:54
robotics because in the past you to use
00:14:56
different type of and the sectors for
00:14:58
the different types of object if you
00:15:00
want to manipulate oh huge right I you
00:15:06
to professor chef unfold and or for
00:15:09
this example I think this is a perfect
00:15:11
example of micro engineering work maybe
00:15:14
we can come back to the slides right.
00:15:19
Thank you. Uh a few example here of
00:15:25
some successful startups you see on the
00:15:30
bottom left the statistics of startups
00:15:33
that are actually he should from our
00:15:36
school of engineering. And you know
00:15:39
roughly about seven six to seven
00:15:41
startups per year along the the the the
00:15:45
years. And if I look at the ones that
00:15:49
are coming from our institute I picked
00:15:51
up three here send seem and that was
00:15:53
founded in two thousand three active in
00:15:55
lenses for local my prevention today
00:15:58
more than twenty five employees in two
00:16:01
thousand eight I live that was founded
00:16:04
that active in electrodes from
00:16:06
neurosurgery about ten employees. And
00:16:09
more recently sense fly that was found
00:16:12
that by professor of panel very
00:16:17
successful active in drawings used for
00:16:20
three D zero mapping it says fourteen
00:16:22
for you but I think they're actually
00:16:24
much more than that are almost hundred
00:16:26
from what I heard recently also
00:16:30
mentioning a few excellent exits of our
00:16:34
startups a I mentioned two of them that
00:16:36
happened actually last year where in
00:16:40
January two thousand fifteen compose it
00:16:43
like the lab was acquired actually by
00:16:45
Intel corporation. And the composite
00:16:48
light was actually found that by
00:16:50
Mikhail you make as professor pissed
00:16:53
almost the effect all black all from
00:16:55
IMT and there we are developing this
00:16:58
smart classes particularly the function
00:17:01
wise holographic screen that you see on
00:17:04
the bottom left they are using actually
00:17:06
a scanning projector that was developed
00:17:09
by D sister companies startup called
00:17:11
lemme object which was also acquired by
00:17:14
Intel in march two thousand fifty let
00:17:19
me move on to the last part here about
00:17:22
manufacturing you probably know this
00:17:25
slide here which shows you actually the
00:17:28
number of active person in thousands as
00:17:31
a function of the year in the primary
00:17:33
secondary and sorcery sector here we're
00:17:36
talking about industry sort of more
00:17:38
looking at the secondary sector and you
00:17:40
see that in about forty years we lost
00:17:44
about half a million jobs mainly due to
00:17:47
the crisis in the seventies related to
00:17:50
the watch making. And you wanna tell me
00:17:53
yeah but look at what we gain in the in
00:17:55
the sort sectors so that's probably
00:17:57
more than two thousand the two million
00:18:01
two point five million jobs so
00:18:03
everything is okay but on the other
00:18:04
hand read brings down the number of
00:18:08
jobs in terms of percentage below
00:18:11
twenty five percent that are active in
00:18:13
industry this is probably kind of small
00:18:18
you know it's always good to fight a a
00:18:20
good balance now it was mentioned also
00:18:23
this morning talking about industry for
00:18:25
zero we only have time to discuss about
00:18:28
this topic but this is a new challenge
00:18:31
that is addressing all industry today.
00:18:34
And particularly also the swiss
00:18:36
industry. So how are we going to handle
00:18:39
and face this a revolution this digital
00:18:41
revolution that is actually appearing
00:18:46
today in in the industry. So trying to
00:18:51
answer that question or respond to
00:18:54
that's together with industry the EPFL
00:18:58
decided actually to announce an
00:19:01
initiative called EPFL advanced
00:19:04
manufacturing initiative that response
00:19:07
actually to an already your strategic
00:19:09
initiatives that we convinced it's a
00:19:12
hot board to put in their planning for
00:19:14
seventeen twenty and in April we
00:19:19
created actually DEPFL macro
00:19:21
manufacturing science and engineering
00:19:24
centred it is not yet officially
00:19:27
announced we will be announced it later
00:19:30
probably in September but I thought it
00:19:32
was a good opportunity to already
00:19:34
mentioned that to you that we are
00:19:36
active and trying to lounge and you
00:19:40
program the main objective all this a
00:19:42
centre is to provide a platform to
00:19:45
capitalise interactions between EPFL
00:19:49
all the research institute like C see M
00:19:52
for example or she S and you industrial
00:19:56
park also set up a program the lounge
00:20:01
federated coordinate with the which
00:20:02
projects in the field of advanced
00:20:04
manufacturing develop new medication
00:20:07
for that really goes from training to
00:20:10
setting up a new PHD program in
00:20:12
actually we created a new PHD program
00:20:15
which is called the manufacturing echo
00:20:18
doctor Harding advanced manufacturing
00:20:20
and which is directed by E mail well
00:20:23
with somewhere in the room. And we also
00:20:26
want to then ensure efficient
00:20:28
technology transfer to industry. This
00:20:31
is the phase one of the more ambitious
00:20:33
project that we call the swiss advanced
00:20:35
manufacturing research centre the imac
00:20:37
project that will probably if
00:20:40
everything works fine happen in the end
00:20:43
in twenty twenty typically. And it will
00:20:47
occupied part of the new building that
00:20:50
is projected on the market CD side in a
00:20:53
shot that you see here the marker city
00:20:56
building on the left that's where we
00:20:58
are today you also recognise the CSCNN
00:21:01
in the back you see an old building
00:21:03
that was actually an engineering school
00:21:06
and it's dated nineteen O seven so the
00:21:09
idea is actually to tear it down and
00:21:12
build a new building here that will
00:21:13
holes this swiss innovation part in the
00:21:15
that'll but also part of the swiss
00:21:18
advanced manufacturing research centre
00:21:20
of course this is you know twenty
00:21:22
twenty so we have time but this is
00:21:24
actually the perspective of our
00:21:26
activity. I was up here. And I will
00:21:29
thank you for your attention okay
