A research platform is a central location that groups together scientific equipment and/or expertise designed to offer high-level research services to a large community of users. There are approximately one hundred platforms and technical centres within the University of Bordeaux laboratories, 32 of which have been certified with the "University of Bordeaux Research Platform" label.

Certified platforms

For the university, the development of the "University of Bordeaux platform" certification is a way of attesting to the quality of a platform and guaranteeing its expertise.

The certification process is based on criteria that make it possible to assess its openness, quality of operation and efficient management. The certification is awarded by a committee composed of the University of Bordeaux and its partners: Bordeaux: CNRS, Inserm & INRAE.
