The Technical Unit

The technical unit, made up of about ten people, provides support to the laboratory's researchers and doctoral students for the design, manufacture, assembly, instrumentation and management of the laboratory's ITS (Technical and Scientific Installation). It is led by a teacher-researcher who allocates and organises the daily monitoring and execution of the various tasks.

The prevention officer, a member of the technical unit, ensures that health and safety rules are respected, in relation to the various supervisory bodies; he also has specific missions in relation to the recent restructuring of the laboratory (updating of the premises, removals, etc.)

Technical staff
