Understanding the world through research

Lyon 1 is a multidisciplinary university specializing in both fundamental and applied research. As such, it can boast more than 5000 internationally published articles and 40 patents per year.
The University has 65 state-funded research units working in three fields; health, the environment and material technologies.

A certain number of these units are the result of the association of several laboratories into research clusters. (Full list of research clusters)

This enables these collective structures to have a much wider field of expertise and the acces to, or the purchase of, higher performance research tools than would be possible as individual structures.

European projects

Lyon 1 University hosts numerous and various cutting-edge reasearch projects funded by the ERC.
