Research units

The information provided in the present section may be supplemented with the guide on the regulations, such as the one intended for the National Committee for Scientific Research. The latter guide offers a typology of units, as well as of the laws and regulations which govern their establishment and functioning. The guide is available online or downloadable as a PDF file from the CNRS website.
