IPREM researchers contributed to the identification of a new molecule, styphylopin, that could be a target for future treatments against infections by certain pathogenic bacteria.
Social scientists look at the social implications of the "Dissolved CO2" project, a Géodénergie pilot project that stores CO2 underground by dissolving it in water.
Because of severe design constraints, natural materials use alternative approaches to achieve mechanical performance. A better understanding of how the microstructure of these materials is related to their mechanical performance has the potential to inspire new material designs.
IPREM researchers are working to improve our understanding of chemical and electrochemical surface phenomena that are essential to ionic and electronic transfers during cycling. Coupling XPS (X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy) with electrochemistry, often supplemented by theoretical approaches, has proved highly effective for exploring lithium insertion/extraction, redox processes, interfacial mechanisms, surface reactivity...
Metallomics is an emerging discipline within bioinorganic chemistry, with applications in biology and medecine. UPPA researchers from IPREM have played an important role in the development of this field.
Researchers from Passages offer a look at the repercussions of storing CO2 emissions and replacing fossile fuels with biomass fuels on the inhabitants of the areas directly effected.
International environmental conferences (IEC) are the primary places where concepts for environmental management are forged. This pluridisciplinary and multi-subject group follows the event, from the first “zero draft” until the application of the agreement, with the purpose of performing an ethnographic study of the negociations.
DMEX is a service unit attached to the IPRA research federation and member of the Carnot Institute ISIFoR. Its primary goal is to provide high-resolution 3D imagery that responds to the needs of industry and academia.
In 1980, INRA built the Lapitxuri experimental site, to study the optimum conditions for the growth of Atlantic salmon and to define the scientific bases for the production of juveniles to supplement salmon populations. Many collaborative scientific programs have used the site, the only of its kind in Europe, for experiments in ecology and behavioral studies.
Jean-Paul Callot Geosciences are clearly at the frontier between academic topics and industrial objectives, trying to unravel Earth dynamics, but still concerned by societal outcomes particularly at the foreground today, such as georessources, sustainability of ressources exploration, and energy storage.
Peter Moonen Prof. Peter Moonen is the holder of the X-ray imaging Chair, a public-private collaboration between UPPA, the CNRS and Total. The Chair was created in June 2014 and aims to investigate multiphase flow in porous media. This fundamental topic underlies both civil engineering applications such as durability of construction materials as well as typical geosciences applications such as the behaviour of bio-methane in underground aquifers.

Gilles Pijaudier-Cabot is a full professor of engineering at UPPA and Senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France. He developed damage and fracture models implemented today for structural failure analyses worldwide. He received an ERC advanced grant in 2008 and was awarded the CNRS Bronze Medal in 1991 and the Jean Mandel prize of the French Association of mechanics in 1992.
For thirty years, Olivier Donard has been a leading figure in the area of elemental speciation and is the origin of several techniques that have since become universal standards. In 1989, he received the CNRS Bronze Medal; in 1993 the National Prize of the French Chemistry Society and in 2000 the Prize of the Japanese Spectroscopy Society.
Karinne Miqueu is a young French CNRS researcher who works at the IPREM at UPPA. She was recruited in 2002 as a CNRS researcher. Karinne Miqueu's research aims at understanding the reactivity of main group chemistry, organometallic compounds, transition metal complexes as well as highly reactive species by a combined experimental-theoretical approach.
Xavier Arnauld de Sartre is a geographer. He is a full-time researcher at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), and the vice-head of the UMR PASSAGES, a joint laboratory between the CNRS and UPPA.
Christophe Pécheyran is a research engineer (IR HC) at CNRS. His scientific research concerns trace metal speciation and direct analysis of trace elements and their isotopes by laser ablation/ICPMS. For thirteen years his main field of research has been focused on the development of high repetition rate femtosecond laser instrumentation and applications.
