Research at the IUEM

The IUEM is a major actor in French and European research in marine sciences. Benefiting from a privileged environment that brings together more than half of the national potential in this field, its teams are present on all major research issues and work on all oceans. All disciplines studying the marine environment and the activities that take place there are represented: physics, chemistry, biology, genetics ecology, biogeochemistry, geophysics, geology, geography, law, economics, etc.

4 priority research axes

The research axes are defined by each laboratory, but some topics of interest to several laboratories are grouped under the name of “priority axes”. In addition, IUEM has defined with its partners research axes within ISblue.

The ocean, a major actor in the biogeochemical cycles and climate of our planet
