The UEB's research tools

The research tools put in place by the UEB's Conseil Scientifique have been designed to supplement national and European tools.
Their aim is to reinforce the structuring of its networked research units and to increase their participation in European and international programmes.

The three main tools which have been developed are -

  • Réseaux Thématiques de Recherche (RTR – Thematic Research Networks) - to activate networks of activities organised around defined subject areas.
  • Équipes Projets Transversaux (EPT – Interdisciplinary Project Teams) - to formalise in-depth scientific cooperation and the grouping together, within the networks, of several laboratory teams in order to tackle new issues.
  • International chairs - for foreign researchers of the highest calibre.
