OUR EIGHT RESEARCH CENTERS :
360° expertise in the field of biosourced materials

CERMAV : glycosciences expertise

CERMAV’s themes cover basic knowledge and use of biomass constituents, synthesis or biosynthesis of oligosaccharides, self-assembly of glycopolymers, and biosourced materials.

It is one of the leading laboratories in Europe in the field of Glycosciences. It is engaged on major themes at Chemistry-Physicochemistry-Biology interfaces, responding to major societal challenges in the fields of functional biomaterials with high added value for new technologies, human health and the valorization of biomass.

The Pulp and Paper Research & Technical Center

Technological innovation is at the heart of the CTP’s research programs divided into three strategic priorities:

  • the sustainability of the production sites
  • the development of new paper and board adapted to the specifications of the manufacturers and responding to new uses
  • the exploitation of new technological advances valuing lignocellulosic materials as raw materials

Laboratory of Pulp and Paper Science and Graphic Arts

LGP2 has recognized expertise in the fields of plant fibers, biorefinery, paper and board, printing processes and biobased materials.

The unit conducts research on lignocellulose deconstruction / reassembly processes and surface functionalization by printing processes.

Rheology and Processes Laboratory

The Rheology and Processes laboratory is involved into two major themes :

  • trans-scale rheology and the shaping of polymers and colloids
  • the intensification of transfers and reactivity.

Soils, Solids, Structures, and Risks Laboratory

The “Mechanics and Couplings Multiphysics of Heterogeneous Media” (CoMHet) research team of this laboratory is involved in the Carnot Institute.

It is developing work on the characterization and modeling of heterogeneous materials and fibrous structures using multi-scale approaches.

Department of Molecular Chemistry

The Electrochemical and Analytical Biosystems team (BEA) and the Spectrometry, Interactions and Theoretical Chemistry team (SITH) are involved in PolyNat.

They mainly work on the development of biosensors and bio fuel cells, the design and (bio) functionalisation of nanostructures and methodological developments in the simulation of chemical reactions and excited states.

Department of Molecular Pharmacochemistry

DPM’s research is conducted along two main lines:

  • the research for molecules of therapeutic interest through the extraction and synthesis of new molecules
  • drug physico-chemistry with the development of innovative methods for vectorization and analysis of bioactive molecules

FCBA, the French Institute of Technology for Forest-based and Furniture Sectors

FCBA is a technical center dedicated to forest, pulp, wood and furniture industries.

The teams of Biotechnology and Advanced Silviculture (BSA), Furniture (AMB), InTechFibres (ITF), Environment Health (ENSA), Economy, Energy and Prospective (EEP), and the Wood Laboratory (LBO) are involved in PolyNat.

FCBA provides a wood industry expertise and diversifies potential applications on the home furnishing market.
