Institut Pascal

 

Institut Pascal is an interdisciplinary research laboratory working in the strategic fields of the Engineering and Systems Sciences: Process Engineering, Mechanics, Robotics, Physics of Information Sciences, Health. It is supervised by the University of Clermont Auvergne, the CNRS (INSIS as main institute,  INS2I and INP as secondary institutes) and SIGMA Engineering School of Clermont.

Institut Pascal develops innovative and intelligent systems using system and multi-scale approaches based on the following scientific fields: electromagnetism, reliability, process and bioprocess engineering, civil engineering, imaging, materials, mechanics, microsystems, nanophysics, perception, photonics, robotics, separation and functionalization of biomolecules, interventional technologies and medical diagnosis.

Institut Pascal is organised into 5 research departments called Axe:
• Process Engineering, Energy and Biosystems (GePEB department) - Claude-Gilles DUSSAP
Reactors and Bioreactors, Photoprocesses, Bioenergy, Artificial Closed Ecosystems, Biorefineries.
• Image, Perception Systems, Robotics (ISPR department) - Thierry Chateau
