Ifremer brings its skill on major scientific issues in the fields of competence of the Institute and from scientific opinions or reports, surveys, monitoring networks or monitoring of the marine environment. In connotation with professionals. The development, management and provision of large research infrastructures - fleet, calculation means, data centre, test facilities, experimental structures - are obtainable to the national and European scientific community but also within the outline of Public / private research partnerships.
