Our projects

The work carried out at CORIA is mainly financed by projects which can be industrial (CIFRES, Chairs…), regional (Normandy Region, Labex…), national (ANR calls for projects…), European, international.

These projects finance some theses, equipments and the operations related to these projects.


CORIA is a laureate of a cross-Channel Interreg project!

The optics and laser department is the carrier of an Interreg project called "FireDrone" which consists in developing embedded metrology on a Drone to characterize the soot particles produced during fires. A recent article of Actu Normandie presents the project!
