ARCHI-CM project

The Michel-Eugène Chevreul Institute leads the ARCHI-CM Project (Chemistry and Architectural Materials) which was selected and subsidized within the framework of the 2014-2020 State-Regional Plan Contract. It is a structuring project which is centered on the perimeter of the Institute’s laboratories (UCCS, UMET, LASIR and MSAP) and which mobilizes a significant part of the Chemistry and Materials sector (approximately 80 FTEs).

The ARCHI-CM project aims to respond to societal challenges in the fields of the bio-economy, the response to energy challenges and advanced materials. It is an interdisciplinary project, whose scientific specificity lies in the combination of architecture concepts both to produce innovative materials (functional block assemblies, multi-scale texturing, …) and to induce original chemical reactivities (confined environments, multifunctional catalysts, …).

The ARCHI-CM project is articulated in 3 work programs (WP) focused on the challenges it addresses:

These 3 complementary work programs are supported by research projects of a scientific and technological nature, carried out by the project’s partner laboratories.

They are based on 3 platforms:
