Who are we ?

The laboratory of Excellence gathers 7 laboratories with unique and complementary skills and expertise in order to run multidisciplinary research activities.
4 different CNRS National Institutes are involved:
 PhysicsChemistry, Earth Sciences and Astronomy, Engineering and Systems Sciences.
Chemists and physicists join forces and implement a theoretical and experimental approach, at local and global scales, in the laboratory and on the field.

5 laboratories are located on the University of Lille campus

LOA (Joint Research Unit UMR 8518 CNRS – Université Lille 1)
PC2A (Joint Research Unit UMR 8522 CNRS – Université Lille 1)
PhLAM (Joint Research Laboratory UMR 8523 CNRS – Université Lille 1)
LASIR (Joint Research Unit UMR 8516 CNRS – Université Lille 1 – Université Lille 2)
ICARE (Joint Service Unit UMS CNRS, CNES, Université Lille 1)

1laboratory is located at the University ULCO campus in Dunkirk

LPCA (Research Unit EA 4493 of the University of Littoral Côte d’Opale under contract with the CNRS)

1laboratory is part of the Engineer School "IMT Lille Douai " 

SAGE (IMT Lille Douai – Engineering School and Research Center)


Multidisciplinary expertise fields:

  • laser diagnostics, spectroscopy
  • atmospheric reactivity (gas, aerosols)
  • modelling (transport, reactivity)
  • optical properties
  • radiative transfer
  • quantum Chemistry

The Science Day of the Labex CaPPA is held every year in February. The event is the opportunity for each workpackage to share the last scientific progresses.

Do not hesitate to join us and meet with us for this special day: contact Anne Burlet-Parendel, communication manager and valorization officer for the Labex.
