The Labex CAPPA
The major focus of the Laboratory of Excellence CaPPA - Chemical and Physical Properties of the Atmosphere - relies on the whole aerosol system and its precursors, allowing a better understanding of their role on the climate : radiative forcing and hydrological cycle. Additionally, the labex investigates the evolution of air quality at local, regional and global levels with specific concerns for radionuclides.
It is a fundamental mission of the Labex CaPPA to further promote the northern region of France as a center of excellence in research and education. In bringing together 7 research groups, the labex CaPPA creates a multidisciplinary synergistic partnership strongly contributing to metrological innovations in the field of atmospheric environment. It therefore takes effectively part in the regional and national socio-economic development.
7 laboratories: LOA, PC2A, PhLAM, SAGE, LPCA, LASIR, ICARE
5 partner institutions: CNRS, Université Lille Sciences et technologies, IMT Lille Douai, ULCO, CNES
The Labex CAPPA is an integral part of the Foundation I-SITE ULNE
