Activity Report 2016

2016 marks an important stage in our progress: we have been evaluated by High Council for Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (Hcéres), we have reviewed our first Goals and Performance Contract and our scientific strategy and we have negotiated a second contract with the State. The Institute’s departments have continued to produce very high quality research, we have taken part in a large number of successful IDEX and I-Site projects, and … during this time our supporting services have been juggling with the new French “Budgetary Management and Public Accounting” rules. We have increased our profile at both the national and international levels, reaffirming the validity of the topics we cover.

Activity report 2014

This year’s report continues our policy of constant improvement and is slightly different from last year’s. While continuing to highlight our strengths and the commitment of all our staff to innovation, we have stressed our presence on the regional, national and international stage and increased coverage of the Departments that were set up in 2013.

IFSTTAR continues to prove how it shapes the research environment in which it operates both in France and abroad, as witnessed by the success of the TRA 2014 conference.
