The " Pôle d'Ingénierie de Matériaux de Wallonie" (PIMW) was founded thanks to the "European Regional Development Fund" and the "Direction Générale des Technologies, de la Recherche et de l'Energie" of Wallonia by the research centres CRM and Sirris and ULiège. This collaboration made it possible to join the complementary skills essential to the conception of a synergy in the exploitation of both traditional and innovative materials and their implementation.
The centres bring together 250 researchers strengthened by strong cooperation with the University of Liège and other research sites.
The PIMW is at the service of those who use and transform materials into products. We can help companies from product design, material selection (from plastic to titanium), optimal assembly (from welding to bonding) to practical implementation and pre-production.
The PIMW is a showcase of innovative technologies thanks to technological breakthrough platforms such as the "additive manufacturing" platform.
