UMR Chrono-Environnement: Interdisciplinary (life sciences, sciences of the universe, health sciences, physical and chemical sciences, human sciences, and mathematics) joint research center of the CNRS (National Institute of Sciences and Research) bringing together the necessary skills to respond to the challenges raised by the global emergency to manage resources and biodiversity in a sustainable manner, for a sustainable development of human populations.

UMR Biogéosciences: Joint research center of the CNRS (National Institute of Sciences and Research) gathering together 5 research teams : Biome (Biodiversity emergence and maintenance), CRC (Climatology Research Center), éco évo (Ecology and Evolution), Samba (Structuring of aquatic communities and biomineralization) and Seds (Sedimentary systems, environments and dynamics).

Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site Jurassian Arc: Research device conducted by the CNRS (National Institute of Sciences and Research) fostering long term interdisciplinary research about environment and ecosystems, related to societal issues. The Jurassian Studies Area brings together partnership research involving 21 regional actors (professional organizations farmers, administrations, NGOs, etc.) on the interactions between environment, society and the dynamics of mid-mountain socio-ecological systems. Four transversal research themes are favored: “ecosystems and environment”, “contaminants and health”, “uses of a changing space” and “observatories and modeling”, which echo and amplify the research priorities of Chrono-environnement , especially in their “long-term” dimension (monitoring adaptive, data banking) and partnership (multidisciplinarity, intersectorality).

IRN-EHEDE: the International Research Network « Ecosystem health and environmental disease ecology » (EHEDE) has the objectives of promoting exchanges and bringing better legibility to research in Eurasia linking ecosystem health and disease ecology. Research is based on the principles of EcoHealth and brings together world class researchers in a unique network of 9 member laboratories, 12 associated laboratories and related infrastructure belonging to 6 countries. Their research privileged systems approaches and focus mainly on human – wildlife conflicts such as transmission ecology of Echinococcus multilocularis, conservation of the Yunnan Snub-Nosed Monkey and wild Asian Elephant, etc.
