The Academy of the sciences and the Academy of the technologies published in 2010 a report on the metallurgy in France. A committee was set up by the Ministry of Education and Research with the aim to study the implementation of the various recommendations. The committee made a series of concrete propositions at the beginning of 2014, concerning a structuralization of the metallurgy in France with various aspects: needs and organization of training, of research, of the relations with industry and the visibility of the discipline. This short article quickly presents these issues.
