Research topics

Conceived as cross-disciplinary scientific coordination structures, the IRBI's 4 challenges are designed to capitalise on the complementary nature of the expertise and methodologies of each team. The objectives of these challenges are to encourage the emergence of new and original thematic proposals, to create an operational force that can respond effectively to external requests and, finally, to ensure the visibility of our research themes and our expertise on a local, national and international scale.
