This theoretical but also empirical work is being conducted in partnership with manufacturing companies and energy and aeronautical and spatial transportation sectors.
Olivier Bonneau has been co-responsible and co-founder(1991-2002) of a DESS degree (High Specialized Studies Degree) in mechanic conception and modeling.
He had been at the head of the Laboratoire de Mécanique des Solides (UMR CNRS-University of Poitiers) for eight years (from 2002 to 2009). He coordinated on behalf of the University of Poitiers, during four years, the Transport du Contrat de Projets État Région program which involved 200 researchers belonging to 11 research unities.
