Research at Cerema is strongly linked to its other activities, and helps to connect the organisation with the state-of-the-art, particularly by strengthening its role as a “knowledge broker”, mediating between research and the regions of France.
Research that feeds expertise
Research at Cerema enables it to back up public policies with a role as mediator to not only enrich expertise through new scientific and technical knowledge at the highest level of the state-of-the-art but also to facilitate the conversion of needs observed in the field so that they become new subjects of research.
Cerema brings together project teams to work on formally defined scientific projects. This structure takes account of Cerema’s research and innovation priorities, including the societal challenges raised by ecological transition.
Our scientific activities are structured around multi-year research projects, both in France and abroad. The diversity of the subjects and the teams reflects Cerema’s cross-sectoral multi-disciplinary approach.
At any given time, on average Cerema accommodates roughly fifty PhD students for varying durations, providing them with suitable supervision and the right environment for their work. Discover the panorama of PhD students working at Cerema.
