Understanding the world through research

Lyon 1 is a multidisciplinary university specializing in both fundamental and applied research and as such it can boast more than 4300 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. 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.
