The SUBATECH laboratory is a joint research unit (UMR 6457) under the triple supervision of the Institut Mines-Télécom through its school, IMT Atlantique, the University of Nantes and the CNRS with the National Institute of Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics (IN2P3) as the main institute and the National Institute of Chemistry as a secondary institute.
Fully integrated in major worldwide scientific collaborations, Subatech's research activities revolve around the fields of nuclear, hadronic, particle and astroparticle physics and radiochemistry. Subatech carries out both fundamental and applied research in the fields of energy, the environment and health. The mastery of technologies associated with these fields is a key factor for the success of the laboratory's projects.
Subatech contributes to the socio-economic development thanks to a finalised research and valorisation strategy, whether it be industrial chairs, technology transfers, the creation of a company by laboratory members or the co-financing of doctoral theses with the industrial world.
The SUBATECH laboratory is located on the Nantes campus of IMT Atlantique (campus access) in the Chantrerie site.
The 4 thematic axes of the laboratory are : The Two Infinites, Nuclear for Health, Nuclear for Energy and the Environment, and Technologies Associated with Subatomic Physics.
