Plateforme PRESEN NORMANDIE_UNIVERSITE


PRESENTATION

PRESEN

The PRESEN Research Platform in Normandy Environmental Sciences is the real backbone of the FR CNRS 3730 SCALE because it allows to develop attractive scientific projects at national or international level, which are based on innovative technologies. The PRESEN platform is intended to become the referent on environmental issues, particularly for institutional partners and actors in the socio-economic world concerned.

This interdisciplinary and multi-site platform is composed of 6 technical platforms that aim to share high-performance equipment for scientists, industrialists and institutions, in order to respond to environmental issues:

  • Environmental matrices physical analysis platform
  • Environmental matrices chemical analysis platform
  • Microbiology and Molecular Ecology platform
  • Microscopic Analysis and Cytometry platform
  • Mesocosms and Experimental Plots platform
  • Mobile Technical platform and In-situ Equipments


These 6 technical platforms are hosted by :

  • the University of Rouen Normandy :
    -  the UMR 6143 M2C Laboratory (Continental and Coastal Morphodynamics)
    -  the EA 1293-URA IRSTEA ECODIV Laboratory  (BioDIVERSITY Study and Understanding)
     
  • the University of Le Havre Normandy :
    - the UMR-INERIS 02 SEBIO Laboratory (Environmental Stress and BIOSurveillance of Aquatic Environments)     - the UMR 6294 LOMC Laboratory (Waves and complex environments)
  • the University of Caen Normandy :
    - the UMR 6143 M2C Laboratory (Continental and Coastal Morphodynamics)

A true interface structure between scientists and institutions, PRESEN is positioned at National and European level through :
  •  the acquisition of analytical and experimental equipment  unique  in France
  •  the watershed / karst / estuary observation systems on regional sites integrated in national observation networks (SO Karst, SO DYC, CNRS / INSU).
