Research laboratory


The MECD Institute has been awarded the Institut Carnot label

IP is a partner of the MECD Institute. Through its 4 Technical Centers, its 4 university laboratories and its CTL Network, the MECD Institute is developing an R&D offer that anticipates the major challenges of the construction sector.

IP at Charade

At the invitation of the Departmental Council, the Pascal Institute is testing its 3D reconstruction and vision guidance algorithms on the Charade circuit.


Institut Pascal celebrates the 80th anniversary of the CNRS: made by amateurs with the heart, inspired by young dancers whom we warmly thank. It was a real pleasure to share this adventure with them.

IP on France Culture

Professor Jean-Jacques Lemaire of the TGI Axis, neurosurgeon at the University Hospital of Clermont-Ferrand, talks about his discipline on France Culture in the program MATIERE A PENSER.

Counting photons with topology

The performance of communication techniques based on optical systems capes. But a recent field of research, topologial photonics, is opening the way for a new impetus for innovation. The new topology tools allow physicists to explain exotic conductivity porperties of materials, where electrons flow only on their surface and in a single direction. The challenge of photonics is to draw inspiration from these materials to design systems where light can propagate in only one direction. Olivier BLEU PhD  Student, Dmitry SOLNYSHKOV Professor UCA and Guillaume MALPUECH Research Director CNRS at the laboratory Institut Pascal talk about their project on the subject on France Culture on August 30th.
