LabEx – centres of excellence

Objective: provide support for all research teams in a specific scientific area and act as a driving force for masters and doctoral courses.

  • Bézout, discrete and continuous models and algorithms
  • Urban Futures: Laboratory which federates 13 interdisciplinary research teams to deal with the adaptation of the city in general (arrangement, architecture, transport and environment).
  • MMCD (Multi-scale modelling and experimentation with materials for sustainable construction) and its extension Advanced Materials designed to build and promote a “materials” scientific community within UPE.
  • SITES (Sciences, innovation and techniques in society)

In addition, a LabEx hosted by UPEC, VRI (Vaccine Research Institute) and 11 LabExes that include UPE stakeholders: BIOPSY, CELYA, ESEP, IBEID, IEC, L-IPSL, OSE, OSUG@2020, PRIMES, REVIVE, SERENADE


Sense-City’s equipex : Hosted by the IFSTTAR, it is an unique excellent equipment in Europe. Sense-City will represent a mini-city. It is about a climatic hall of 400m2 mobile and reconfigurable capable of welcoming realistic models of the main components of the city, such as buildings, infrastructures or / and distribution networks. Objective: Design, prototype and validate urban nano-captors: a mini-city in a climatic chamber intended to recreate an environment that closely resembles an urban habitat and validate the concept.5 projects that include UPE stakeholders: NANOIMAGESX, NANOID, IVTV, GEOSUD, RESIF-CORE.
