A distributed research infrastructure

EMBRC is a ‘distributed research infrastructure’ (RI) with a central ‘hub’ or headquarters responsible for the coordination and centralised management of the organisation. 

Our headquarters are located at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. Our national partners (or ‘nodes’) in our member countries are composed of one or more marine stations. These stations provide services to EMBRC ‘users’, ie researchers or industry stakeholders from within the country or elsewhere in Europe and beyond.
