IRCELYON and industry

Catalysis is at the heart of chemical production and our discipline was one of the first to develop close relations with the industrial sector.

These relations are set up through bilateral contacts with French and foreign enterprises. Currently some thirty IRCELYON - private company contracts ensure a huge part of our own resources.

A significant number of our scientists also work as consultants to companies, ensure catalysis courses within an industrial setting, or have benefited from being totally immersed in industry; thanks to the CNRS allowing their temporary detachment, in general for a 1-year period.
