​The Moniteur Innovation Day (MID) congress, organized for the second consecutive year, is an unmissable event for those involved in the construction and development of territories which took place the week of October 19th. Of course, the setec group couldn’t be absent from this event dedicated to the construction of tomorrow!

This day of discussions made it possible to highlight the dynamic of innovation in the construction sector, through the vision of the great leaders, recognized experts and feedback from experiences or ambitious and inspiring projects, and thanks to the professionalism of our fifteen animation journalists. It was also the opportunity to meet again and create or recreate links, at a time when they have become rare. In total, 700 people responded by coming to the Seine Musicale, despite this troubled period. Among the participating companies were Bouygues Construction, VINCI Construction, Colas, Egis, Saint-Gobain, Suez, etc.

The program for the week, which went off with great success, was as follows:

  • Monday 19/10: All plenary sessions – opening and closing
  • Tuesday 20/10: The Performance Imperative
  • Wednesday 21/10: The Environmental Challenge
  • Thursday 22/10: The Revolution of Usages
  • Friday 23/10: The Cultural Big Bang

The intervention of Michel Kahan, president of the setec group, took place on Monday morning on the session The performance imperative on the theme: The work over time: instrumentation and measurement methods. The setec group innovates in structural monitoring equipment, thanks to sensors and drones. Our president presented the new tunnel inspection technologies from Diadès, Advizeo’s expertise for better use of buildings, and data models from Captae and Datae instrumentation, sensors and software dedicated to supervision of civil engineering and building, developed by Le Lerm.
