CIFRE PhD project funded by SNCF

In the context of the Roborics-by-Design Lab coordinated by Strate Ecole de Design, and in partnership with SNCF, we aim to address human-robot collaboration with a new angle.


To date, robotic tools have been integrated into production systems considering only operators’ performance, skills, health and safety criteria. This gave rise to a number of unexpected phenomena, such as operators suffering from remoteness from the product and the production, and loss of meaning of work.

The aim of this project is to study individual and collective motivational processes of maintenance operators in order to design future robotic systems and organizational framework that will foster meaning of work and engagement.

This project falls within LINEACT’s Research “Learning and Innovating” theme and Industry of the Future application domain.
