Architecture and urban physics, a chair to reinvent the city

The UPPA, the technology center Nobatek, the New Aquitaine region and the Agglomération Côte Basque Adour came together to create an "common laboratory", in the form of an academic chair awarded to Benoît Beckers.

Director : Benoit Beckers


Laboratory for the Study of Rheology and the Adhesion of Medical Adhesives (LERAM)

The physics and chemistry of polymers team of the IPREM and the pharmaceutical URGO have joined forces to create LERAM, or Laboratory for the Study of

Rheology and the Adhesion of Medical Adhesives, a common laboratory designed to create innovative products in the area of medical adhesives.

Director : Christophe Derail


A common lab for the study of complex matrices

A group of researchers from IPREM and LFCR are part of a new common laboratory, the C2MC (for Molecular Cartographies of Complex Matrices), which is a major step forward in petroleum research. This new structure, nearly the only of its kind in the world, is built on the synergies, in terms of tools and expertise, among all of its partners:

  • inorganic mass spectrometry for UPPA
  • molecular mass spectrometry for the University of Rouen
  • refining for Total.

This partnership aims to establish precise molecular cartographies of fossil and plant raw materials used in refining and petrochemicals.
