LIA’s

An LIA (Laboratoire International Associé) is a “laboratory without walls” and is not a legal entity. It consists of the association of a CNRS-affiliated laboratory and a laboratory from another country. These laboratories pool together human and material resources towards a common, jointly-defined project designed to add value to their individual pursuits. For more information, please contact Sabrina Lecerf Rossard: lecerf@ganil.fr
