Presentation of the FERMaT federation

The FERMAT federation

- FERMAT federates several public laboratories which are settled in Toulouse city or in surrounding cities. This federation is dedicated to the support for research in the fields of fluid mechanics, energy, reaction engineering, material science, and heat & mass transfer.

- The core of the federation consists in research teams related to 6 major laboratories:

  • Laboratoire de Génie Chimique (LGC)
  • Institut de Mécanique des Fluides de Toulouse
  • Laboratoire d’Ingénierie des Systèmes Biologiques et Procédés
  • Centre Interuniversitaire de Recherche et d’Ingénierie des Matériaux
  • LAboratoire PLAsma et Conversion et d’Energie
  • Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systèmes
  • Other regional labs are also sometimes involved.

5 active research topics in FERMAT

- Multiphase flows
- Material science and application
- Life engineering
- Porous media and colloids
- Microfluidics and Microreactors

The LGC associated to the FERMaT Federation

- Since the creation of the FERMAT federation, several teams within the Laboratoire de Génie Chimique have been regularly involved into various projects. The LGC lab hosts equipment financed by FERMAT, and these devices can be used by all members of the federation.
