The department supports the development of research and higher education

The Department relies on the current CPER (Contrat de Plan Etat-Région), the common law framework for programming major investments in research and higher education. Like previous CPERs, the Department is heavily involved in the 2015-2020 CPER, committing €18M, including €1.5M for the construction of the BIAM in the Cité des Énergies.
