UMR Chrono-Environnement: Interdisciplinary (life sciences, physics, health science, chemistry, human science, and mathematics) joint research center affiliated with the CNRS (National Institute of Sciences and Research) bringing together the necessary skills to respond to the challenges raised by the global resource management and biodiversity emergency, for sustainable development of human populations.

UMR Biogéosciences: Joint CNRS (National Institute of Sciences and Research) research center 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: Large study area overseen by the CNRS (National Institute of Sciences and Research) fostering long term interdisciplinary research on environment and ecosystems, related to societal issues. The Jurassian Studies Area brings together partnership research involving 21 regional stakeholders (professional organisations, farmers, administrations, NGOs, etc.) on the interactions between environment, society and the dynamics of mid-mountain socio-ecological systems. The four main research themes are: ‘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 goals (adaptive monitoring, data storage) and partnership (multidisciplinarity, intersectorality).

IRN-EHEDE: the International Research Network « Ecosystem Health and Environmental Disease Ecology » (EHEDE) has the objective 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 favours systems approaches and focuses mainly on human – wildlife conflicts such as transmission ecology of Echinococcus multilocularis, conservation of the Yunnan Snub-Nosed Monkey and wild Asian Elephant, etc.
