Irstea
To better reflect its missions, Cemagref adopts a new name : Irstea, “National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture”.
Irstea is a research organization which, since more than 30 years, works on major issues of a responsible agriculture and territories sustainable planning, water management and related risks, drought, floods, inundations, the biodiversity and complex ecosystems study in their interrelation with human activities.
Irstea employs 1,650 people made up of 9 regional divisions.
The research and public policy support activities at Lyon concern the field of water. The center of Lyon is divided in two research unit.
The research unit MALY seeks to provide operational responses to diagnose pollution, especially toxic pollution, and disturbances resulting from hydraulic structures or river facilities. This research is tackled at various spatial levels, ranging from the reach to the catchment area. The unit is also conducting research, appraisal work and technical support to improve the quality of aquatic environments and reduce discharge linked to human activities.

Envolure
Envolure is a young innovative company which was founded by Nathalie Pautremat and Yves Dudal early 2010. Envolure comes from 6 years of public research (2003-2009) at INRA (National Institute for Agronomic Research) in Avignon and later Montpellier in collaboration with the Molecular Chemistry Institute of the University of Reims and the Chemistry and Environment Lab of the University of Provence in Marseille.
Its missions in the ECHIBIOTEB project:
  • Measure of interactions of Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM) with selected organic micropollutants
  • Correlation between the above mentionned interactions and the micropollutant toxicity and their SPMD or POCIS-available fractions
