10 years of L’agaptualité
10 years already! The îrst issue of l’agaptualité, then known as Orange&Bleu, appeared in July 2008. It didn’t have any particular theme, but it hoped to become a source of information and a special resource to promote our products and expertise.
10 years later, l’agaptualité has a fresh new look! A new look for a new format. The newspaper is adopting the style of a magazine and is increasing from 4 to 12 pages to carry out new ambitions:
to promote our clients by letting them speak but also making l’agaptualité your newspaper. So, as Arnaud said in 2008 in the îrst of a long series of editorials, Long Live L’agaptualité... and Long Liveagap2!

Start date:February 2017 Localisation :Grenoble Consultant :Jesse B.
At Air Liquide, the world leader in space cryogenics, Jesse is taking part in the development of the future European Ariane 6 rocket launcher.

The passenger compartment of the future: what if the self-driving car was a reality tomorrow?
This is the îrst project for Pierre, a young ENSAM graduate, who joined the French automotive equipment manufacturer Faurecia in 2017 in order to develop the «passenger compartment of the future». A next-generation passenger compartment that will be installed in all self-driving cars by 2022.
«The car seat has had to change considerably with the arrival of self-driving cars. This has led to the development of new comfort features for well-being on board. Although its current design is mainly focussed on safety, new technology and previously unused materials will have to be added to it.
The project that I worked on focusses on the seat’s headrest. Nowadays, the headrest is purely a security feature which is not really ergonomic. In the self-driving car of tomorrow, the passenger should be able to relax in his or her chair, even being able to sleep while the car is being driven. Therefore, this part of the seat has to be completely reinvented to make signiîcant improvements in comfort by înding the correct balance
Démarrage :February 2017 Location :Magny-Vernois (Haute-Saône) Consultant :Pierre B.
agaptualité| n°20 | janvier 2018
between technical solutions, comfort, design and regulations. It is difîcult to anticipate how regulations will change regarding self-driving cars. The transition will be gradual, the main manufacturers are making progress in this area but the technologies still have to be perfected, and it will take time for the legislation to be changed.
I took my îrst steps into the working world as a Design Engineer. Working with a project manager, I took part in technical meetings with seat experts to design the solutions selected, using the CAO software Catia. The mechanisms are designed based on volumes, whereas the style or comfort aspects require work to be based on surfaces. Finally, I also managed the digital model and I supervised the production
of several physical prototypes related to the project.
It was not easy to start off with as the project took time to get going. But starting from scratch to create a new product, designing it, making models, all while dealing with the various constraints, and înally being able to touch it... that was really great! Even if the project was perplexing to start with: «You’re going to design a headrest», the work turned out to be really fascinating, and that’s the reason why I became an Engineer.»

All new from Pau: the BRTS, the Irst hydrogen bus line in France
A huge challenge for Julie, a consultant in Benoit’s team, who has been working for a year on the BRTS project (Bus Rapid Transport Service) that will be implemented in the city of Pau by 2019. This was a îrst for Julie, who had the opportunity to switch from the construction world to transport by taking part in this project that involves a major reorganisation of the city and its public spaces.
«But what is a BRTS? Like a tram, the Bus Rapid Transport Service is a public transport system that has exclusive right of way, in other words, it’s a transport system that will run on lanes reserved exclusively for the BRTS. It will run on dedicated lanes. Pau chose to run hydrogen buses on its future BRTS line. This is a îrst in France, but also a world îrst as this brand new type of bus will be guaranteed to be «emissions-free».
Pau’s BRTS project is an urban transport project that will structure Pau’s urban community and the city. In addition to offering a new means of transport, this project will lead to the considerable reorganisation of the town, which is investing nearly 50 million euros to renovate its public spaces. In fact, the creation of the BRTS requires work to be carried out on the frontages of buildings
agaptualité| n°20 | january 2018
(work at the bottom of a building then on the building opposite) in order to create the route for this new means of transport, which will run in a îgure of eight from the north to the south of the city.
Our consultant, Julie, is working as a Works Engineer on the fulîlment phase of the project. She controls a third of the project and is accompanying Artelia in its prime contracting role. Her job is to manage the interfaces between the prime contractor, the city of Pau, and the companies responsible for carrying out the work. She is responsible for ensuring the quality and costs of the project, and that deadlines are met. Day to day, she monitors the project and is responsible for all the technical decisions that are taken.
challenge. Coming from a construction background, she had the opportunity to change her job and the activity sector. This transport project is a technical îrst for Julie, who had never worked in Contracting Management before. She has therefore been able to gain new skills and experience on an ambitious and complex project. Julie, who is from Bordeaux, didn’t want to move too far away from her home town, but chose to be a part of my team for this project as, in her own words: «agap2 offered me a challenge that will give my future career a boost ».»

Serialisation: the big challenge
From 2019 onwards, every box of medicine prescribed in Europe will have to carry a unique identiîcation number. Called serialisation, this plan was presented on the 19th of October during agap2 Life Science’s breakfast, which brought together several professionals from the pharmaceutical industry. Nicolas P., Project Manager - Industrial Development Service at Antares, a company specialising in serialisation and data processing, and Amélie B., Serialisation Manager at Aguettant Laboratories, shed light on the impact and the challenges of this transformation.
What is the principle of serialisation? N.P.: Serialisation is a legal requirement for all pharmaceutical laboratories to ensure each pack of medicine has a unique identiîcation and to record this information in databases that will ensure their traceability. In concrete terms, this means a unique serial number that will be added to the Data Matrix (bar code or QR code on the medicines), in addition to other elements that are already mandatory.
Who is concerned by this? N.P.: All laboratories, such as Aguettant, that produce medicines covered by the national social security are concerned and they will have until January 2019 to implement this European directive.
What challenges does the serialisation of medicines present for you, as a pharmaceutical laboratory? A.B.The challenges are mainly : industrial in nature. We must integrate the necessary equipment to implement serialisation and to guarantee the inviolability of all our sales units. The main challenge is to maintain our operating costs and the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) of our production lines.
agaptualité| n°20 | january 2018
The second challenge is related to data management. We must be able to store all of the serial numbers and to send them to the relevant authorities in order to guarantee the traceability of the batches.
What changes will this involve? A.B. : This will require considerable changes in terms of our processes, as we will have to have the necessary equipment to print the serial numbers on the boxes, in addition to the veriîcation, storage and sending of these numbers. This will also require considerable training and support for the production staff in the processing of these serialised packages.
What challenge does the patient face regarding this serialisation system? A.B.Around 10% of medicines are : thought to be counterfeit throughout the world. This serialisation system is designed to limit the black market. When dispensing a box of medicine, the pharmacist will have to check that its serial number was correctly registered by the pharmaceutical laboratory beforehand. As such, each box of medicine that will be dispensed
to patients in hospitals or pharmacies, will beneît from this extra traceability. Today, such systems are already in use in Turkey. Medicines are scanned at each stage of distribution to check that they have not been manipulated or sold on to the black market.
agap2’s expertise
Aymeric M., an agap2 consultant with Aguettant, is supporting the laboratory with their implementation of serialisation.
« I am an Automation and Industrial IT Engineer. In order to support Aguettant in implementing serialisation, I am working both on training the production staff on the new centralisation software, and on the maintenance of the new equipment in case of a breakdown or other problem. My job is to have a good command of the whole system, which is both automated and computerised in order to ensure it is optimised. »
