To better anticipate changes in the thermal imaging market and understand the expected functions, ULIS has chosen to become a committed and active player within a variety of structures of which we propose a brief overview below.
ULIS is a committed and active player within a number of competitiveness clusters and corporate groups with an aim to extending its expertise and being at the heart of the decisions and innovations that will allow it to develop the products expected by the market.
The result of a decision made by the French government in 2005, competitiveness clusters bring economic stakeholders together by means of collaborative innovation and R&D. Mirroring the clusters formed overseas (Switzerland, Israel, Finland, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Denmark, etc.), competitiveness clusters aim at promoting gateways between industry and academic communities and at stimulating the network effect and collaborative projects.
ULIS is a member of 3 specialised competitiveness clusters:
MINALOGIC: an international competitiveness cluster dedicated to digital technologies, combining micro-nanoelectronics, optics-photonics and software.
Minalogic has more than 350 members including:
10 research and training organisations,
10 local authorities,
23 economic development organisations,

SIA (French Society of Automotive Engineers) groups specialists, enthusiasts and professional experts from the automotive industry all wishing to promote progress in their sector by sharing information and knowledge.
The SIA is a place where people can exchange in order to act, share, progress and innovate together. It represents the French automotive industry overseas as a member of the EAEC (European Automotive Engineers Cooperation) and the FISITA (Fédération Internationale des Sociétés des Ingénieurs de l’Automobile = International Federation of Automotive Engineering Societies).
The thermal imagers developed by ULIS offer a solution to the detection
and decision-making aid requirements for all types of vehicles,
irrespective of weather and conditions (fog, night-time).

SBA (Smart Buildings Alliance) is an association, the aim of which is to organise the promotion of the Smart Buildings sector within Smart Cities by associating a group of professionals in this sector. SBA takes the form of a one-stop shop of Smart Building and Eco-District solutions. It organises the convergence of the three clusters, namely Building Automation, Energy/Infrastructure and IT/software).
SBA has 170 organisations representative of all the trades relating to the Building sector and Smart City stakeholders, with an aim to conceiving and defining Smart Buildings.
ULIS proposes an offer adapted to optimisation of building
resources in order to enhance their value in use.
