The laboratories

12 laboratories are involved in the research program

The TESS research program is organized around four main scientific challenges

Members of the participating laboratories will work on these questions and are committed to training Master and PhD students from the TESS program.

The partner laboratories of EUR Tess in a few words


Centre d’Études Spatiales de la Biosphère

Contributes to the advancement of knowledge on the functioning of continental surfaces and their interactions with climate and humans, largely relying on satellite data

Centre National de la Recherche Météorologique

The CNRM’s themes concern weather forecasting and climate change, and feed on the synergy and reciprocal enrichment between research and operational application. The CNRM also carries out research enabling Météo-France to respond to the major challenges related to Aeronautics, Defense, the Security of Property and People, etc.

Géosciences Environnement Toulouse

GET is a fundamental and applied research laboratory in Geosciences and Environmental Sciences.

The 9 themes of the laboratory constitute a continuum between the disciplines of geology (knowledge of mineral and energy resources, dynamics and history of the Internal Earth and links with the external envelopes), the disciplines of geophysical and geochemical observation of the Earth, geochemical experimentation and environmental sciences (study of the critical zone, study of contaminants and associated health risks). All of this research is based on an analytical park, experimentation and measurement in petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry and geophysics.

Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie

IRAP teams work on the study and understanding of the Universe and its content: the Earth as a planet, its ionized spatial environment, the sun and its planets, the stars and their planetary systems, the environment interstellar, galaxies, compact objects, the very first stars and the primordial Big Bang. This is done through observation, modeling and theory, instrumentation and laboratory experiments.

Laboratoire D’Écologie Fonctionnelle et Environnement

The research carried out by the Functional Ecology and Environment laboratory covers different aspects of the dynamics of biodiversity and the ecological and biogeochemical functioning of ecosystems in a context of global change, transcending the boundaries of levels of biological organization (from genes to metacommunities) , types of ecosystems (terrestrial, freshwater, marine, and the interfaces between these systems), and major biomes on Earth..

Laboratoire d’Aérologie

Observe and understand the atmosphere

The scientific activity of the Aerology Laboratory aims to observe, model and understand the dynamic and physico-chemical processes that govern the evolution of the atmosphere and the coastal ocean.
