CORIA has shared services for researchers, Ph D. and post-doctoral students. A mission, a task to design, advices… they are here to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible and in compliance with health and safety rules.
This service manages the laboratory’s computer networks and servers. It takes care of the installation of new machines and manages several servers for storage and intensive calculations. Many hosted services are offered to all staff (mail, gitlab, stock management …). It has skills in numerical computation and can thus assist researchers doing numerical simulations or experimenters for the processing of results. Working closely with metrology, it can also intervene directly on certain experimental installations.
The Metrology and Instrumentation division was created in 2009. It now combines the skills of ten agents in five specialties:
– Laser Optics
– Two-phase & high pressure platform
– Fluid platforms and combustion
– Software integration and development
It manages and relies on the (RENADIAG) platform which brings together all the experimental resources available at CORIA.
Its main purpose is to successfully deploy specific metrological techniques, which are essential for experimental studies carried out by researchers.
Within this framework, the Metrology and Instrumentation Pole conducts and proposes :
– Expertise of needs and constraints
– Advice and participation in the drafting of project specifications
– Plan the equipment supply
– Specific devices eventual design
– The techniques implementation
– The experimenters training
– Supervision of experimentals set up
– Advice on the data collected processing .
The Metrology and Instrumentation division monitors, develops and participates in the development of metrological techniques. It helps to rationalize the means, to develop and maintain, at a level of excellence, the experimental resources made available to researchers by the laboratory.
The infrastructure, logistics and security department is responsible for the technical management of the building. It is made up of four agents with multidisciplinary skills.
They accept the control and maintenance of equipment, the monitoring of maintenance contracts and the implementation of new work within the laboratory.
They work with the other research support teams in order to advise and ensure the safety of facilities and people.
The Mechanical Engineering and Manufacturing Department is responsible for the design, dimensioning and production of the laboratory’s experimental facilities. It is made up of 7 people spread between the design office and manufacturing. It is equipped with CAD, computing and modelling software as well as numerically controlled machines (wood, metals and plastics) enabling the design and production of exceptional equipment for experiments (combustion chamber, high pressure chamber, etc.).
The Administration and Resources department ensures the administrative and financial management of the laboratory.
Its work revolves around several missions:
As an interface between the CORIA teams and the supervising establishments, the service team answers all administrative questions and supports the Laboratory’s projects.
