NuPECC Meeting – March 11, 2011

2 IN2P3, an Institute of CNRS
CNRS Under the authority of the ministry for higher education and research 1 200 research and service units (labs) research in all the fields of knowledge employees performing and accompanying research 10 thematic institutes, including 3 national institutes IN2P3 (created in 1971), INSU and INSMI permanent staff researchers, engineers, technicians, administration © CNRS/Dircom 2

3 IN2P3 Missions Promote and federate research in nuclear, particle, astroparticle physics Coordinate the programs in the name of CNRS and Universities, in partnership with CEA Explore the physics of elementary particle their fundamental interactions their bounding in atomic nuclei the properties of these nuclei the connections between infinitely small and infinitely large LHC - © Cern 3

4 IN2P3 Missions Bring its competence
to other scientific domains to contribute solving societal problems Participate to the formation of students (University, grandes écoles) Help the companies benefit from its expertise IPN Orsay/IN2P3-CNRS 4

5 IN2P3 Key figures 2 400 CNRS staff, researchers, engineers ands technicians; 600 university and other staff Budget from CNRS (excluding salaries): 50 M€ 24 laboratories and platforms, most of them associated to an University or "grande école" 40 large international projects 15 associated international laboratories (LIA and LEA) Expérience LHCb - © LHCb, Cern 5

6 Laboratories structured in a network
Sharing and optimisation of the ressources and competences of the Institute - large laboratories, infrastructures or technological platforms in limited number - permanent concertation and interactions between laboratories with other units of CNRS, CEA/IRFU, universities, grandes écoles, foreign institutes,… 6
