France | EMBRC


EMBRC-France constitutes the French component of EMBRC-ERIC, and is distributed across three marine stations operated by the Univerité Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) and the Centre National pour la Recherce Scientifique (CNRS). EMBRC-France operates as an integrated national infrastructure, with a single entry point to the national infrastructure and expertise. Through the installations at the Station Biologique de Roscoff (SBR), Observatoire Océanologique de Banyuls-sur-mer (OOB) and Observatoire Océanologique de Villefranche-sur-mer (OOV), EMBRC-France provides access to Atlantic and Mediterranean ecosystems and their exceptional marine biodiversity, alongside state-of-the-art analytical platforms required for high quality research. Biologicals resources can be supplied on-site or remotely from a range of cultured marine models or collected from wild stocks. Accommodation and catering for visiting scientists, conferences, workshops, and summer schools are also available. For more information, visit
