Charles Delaunay Institute

All the UTT’s research activity is gathered within the Charles Delaunay Institute (ICD - 348 personnel including 130 permanent), whose excellence is recognized by the CNRS as a Joint Research Unit (UMR) .

ICD contributes through its international research projects and partnerships of excellence to UTT outreach. Evidence of this influence, the UTT displays 41% of its publications of international rank involving at least one foreign partner (source U-MultiRank).

The best example of excellent scientific cooperation is the work of the team of Nanotechnology and Optical Instrumentation (L2n), ranked A + team.

With 25 partnerships around the world, including 16 outside Europe, the L2n declines all forms of international cooperation: thesis cotutelle programs, stays of invited scientists (incoming and outgoing), participation in multi-country projects. The recent inauguration of a new state-of-the-art equipment, the "Nanomat" platform (nanocractisation and nanofabrication of materials for mechanics, optics, biology and agro-resources, member of the Renatech network) contributes to accentuate this trend. www.nanomat.eu/fr
