CEBA is a Laboratoire d’Excellence, a structure funded through the “Investissements d’Avenir” scheme of the French government.
This investment is aimed at providing significant funding to research laboratories with international exposure to compete with their foreign counterparts, to attract world-class researchers and build an integrated research, training and development structure. This action has taken the form of a competitive call for projects through which laboratories or groups of laboratories have received funding to increase their visibility in the international scene, to strengthen their scientific excellence and international positioning, or for the development of innovative educational projects. The goal of these laboratories of excellence is to increase the scientific excellence and originality, the transfer of knowledge produced, and thereby the international appeal of French research, to ensure educational excellence, to play a leading role in the training at both masters and doctorate levels, and finally to enhance the research dynamics in the focal sites.
