The mission "Reconciling research and development with a safe environment and a preserved biodiversity"

The mission "Reconciling research and development with a safe environment and a preserved biodiversity" is composed of several autonomous research projects/programmes that contribute to generating knowledge and know-how in the following areas

  • New generation of sustainable composites
  • Bio-inspiration (Marine and wood-based materials)
  • Chemical contaminants in land waters
  • Metals in environmental systems
  • Mercury in biological systems
  • Sensors for emergent pollutants
  • Monitoing of subsurface activities

These autonomous programmes are supported by 5 high-level Masters degrees.

Several teams are involved in this theme:

1 hub

  • MesMIC: Metals in Environmental Systems Microbiology

 

2 common labs

 

4 scientific challenges
