In response to the emerging need for identifying project partners, this directory provides an up-to-date
classified list of bookmarks presenting the major players in the parallel mechanisms domain. Naturally,
the list may also be used for career planning as well as for identifying research trends and ideas.
As it can be seen, research efforts are mainly concentrated in West Europe, North America, and the Far East.
The Who's Who directory is organized in three different sections. The first one, Laboratories, refers to
all university laboratories, centers, groups, and the like. The second one, R&D Centers, presents all
noneducational research centers, councils, institutes, and the like. In the first two sections, the entries
are further organized by countries. Finally, the third section, Companies, lists all companies and is further
organized depending on the type of application. For all three sections, additional information is sometimes
posted that is otherwise unavailable from the web site's of the respective members.
For an architecture-based classification,
refer to the web site of Dr. Jean-Pierre Merlet.
Enjoy the information and feel free to contact us with any questions and comments.
