The institute

The Chrono-environment laboratory (UMR 6249 CNRS - Université de Bourgogne Franche-Comté) was created on January 1, 2008 by the merger of the UMR 6565 of Chrono-ecology, the EA 3184 UsC INRA Laboratory of Environmental Biology, the EA 2642 Geosciences, a part of the EA 2276 Health and Rural Environment of Franche-Comté and EA 3186 Physiopathology and Epidemiology of Anti-Infectious Resistance.
In 2012, the Chemistry-Physics and Radiation Laboratory - Alain Chambaudet (LCPR-AC), UMR CEA E4 and the IRMA group (Informatics & Radiation Physics for Medical Applications) of UMR CNRS 6174 FEMTO-ST joined Chrono- environment.
Today in January 2021, the Chrono-environnement laboratory has 298 members, including 171 permanent staff, 62 doctoral students and 65 other contracts (postdoctoral students, fixed-term contracts, etc.).

Our laboratory brings together all the necessary skills to respond to the challenges raised by the global emergency to manage resources and biodiversity in a sustainable manner, for a sustainable development of human populations. As such, we have chosen to build our project around the objectives of the international "Future Earth" initiative, which promotes the acquisition of the knowledge required for sustainable global development, by supporting actions aimed at observing, understanding and predicting the processes involved in the biogeosphere, long-term human-land-environment interactions, and past, present and future environmental, ecotoxicological and epidemiological issues.
The coexistence in the laboratory of skills in life sciences, sciences of the universe, health sciences, physical and chemical sciences, human sciences, and mathematics, is to our knowledge unique at the national level.
The policy of animation around scientific projects, and a functioning without disciplinary teams allow to federate an important part of the researchers of the unit, all disciplines combined, around themes and common projects, and to thus lead to great actions interdisciplinary.

The laboratory is a UMR under the supervision of the University of Burgundy Franche-Comté and the CNRS (INEE, INSHS, INSU) which is associated with both INRAe, INRAP, the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Culture. CEA. The laboratory is also a fellow of the MSHE Ledoux (UAR3124) and the OSU THETA.

The research developed gives rise to an adapted training offer (Masters ASA, EDGE, Health, Society, QuEST, CMI Applied Geology, Environmental Management and Risk Management-, Master SHS specialty Archeology, cultures, territories, environment).
