France’s Carnot label was created in 2006. Its purpose is to develop partnership-based research. In concrete terms, this means research carried out by public laboratories alongside socioeconomic players – mainly businesses, from small firms to large groups – to meet their needs.
The Carnot label is granted to structures in public research – Carnot institutes – that carry out research that enhances their scientific and technological proficiency and that actively apply a determined policy in partnership-based research that brings socioeconomic benefits.
Oniris is a member of two Carnot institutes through its research in the units BIOEPAR and GEPEA, which offer their expertise at a national and international level in different forms, including direct research, collaborative research, tests and trials on technology platforms, consultancy, and shared laboratories.
