This research center is the only one dedicated to both materials for energy and clean combustion.
Led by the CNRS (the Normandy Delegation), it federates 7 laboratories in Normandy:
4 from Caen (CIMAP, CRISMAT, LCMT and LCS)
2 from Rouen (CORIA, GPM)
1 from le Havre (LOMC)
The EMC³ project brings together 700 people, including more than 200 doctoral students and focuses on materials for energy recuperation, the safety of nuclear installations, the development of new materials using eco-compatible methods and the improvement of fuel, combustion, exhaust gas decontamination and thermal energy recuperation.
