French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS)
Founded in 1939, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) is a research organization under the administrative authority of France’s Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. CNRS is organized in 1,100+ laboratories in France and abroad, and employs about 33,000 people dedicated to research (permanent researchers, engineers, technicians, and administrative staff). As one of the largest research organisations in the EU, CNRS is involved in all fields of science, technology and society. CNRS is ranked 1st according to the Nature Index (2017) and came 2nd among French research organisations filing patents.
The Signals and Systems Laboratory (L2S) and the Grenoble Applied Economy Laboratory (GAEL) will carry out the tasks of the project. The L2S is a joint research unit of CNRS, CentraleSupelec and the University of Paris-Sud. The expertise of L2S is quite broad in fundamental and engineering sciences, such as signal processing, wireless communications, communication networks, physics, applied mathematics, energy, etc.
The Grenoble Applied Economy Laboratory (GAEL) is a joint research unit of CNRS, INRA (National Institute of Agricultural Research), University Grenoble Alpes (UGA) and Grenoble INP. The main focus of GAEL is the microeconomics of sustainable innovation and consumption, with results mainly applied to the fields of environment, energy and the agro-industry.
