The PARN association (non-profit organization law 1901) gathers 9 member organizations among research centers and universities of the Rhône-Alpes region that have an activity of study and research on natural hazards.
The association was created in 1988 as one of the recommendations of the “Isère Département Pilote” operation in the field of natural and technological risks: to make an effort in the field of research to develop more effective and less expensive methods.
The cluster has been created with the following objectives :
In all, nearly 170 people (80 researchers or teacher-researchers, 50 engineers and technicians and 40 PhD students) are i working in the field of natural hazards.
They are the natural hazards with a significant part concerning the risks on mountainous territories :
The PARN also intervenes on transverse working axes :
Assistance to the scientific and partenerial project assembly of, as well as to project valorization
Technical and scientific support of the project partners or the administrators
The PARN has internal skills to which you can appeal in the form of service. Its support will enrich and strengthen the strategic and multidisciplinary character of your projects. It will also accentuate the transfer of results, via dedicated and adapted initiatives (cf. support for the risk management activities).
The PARN is an actor recognized for the development of research actions and results. As such it proposes diverse working modalities to improve to carry him in knowledge with the target publics :
Provision of technical and scientific resources for project owners or managers
The PARN puts feeds and updates various portals(gates) and thematic and problematic bases :
Partnership with local actors
