University of Bordeaux


Research within the University of Bordeaux favours an interdisciplinary, international approach. Such collaboration promotes the development of thematic clusters of excellence for research, training and knowledge transfer in numerous fields.

The Science and Technology Department is a key player for scientific research in Aquitaine. It is organized according to subject disciplines but also pursues a transverse, multidisciplinary approach.
The IMS-LAPS/GRAI laboratory at University Bordeaux 1 has been for 20 years developing Enterprise Modelling (EM) knowledge and tools and has been since year 2000 a key contributor to the emergence of Enterprise Interoperability (EI) research in Europe as the leader of IDEAS-TN, INTEROP-NoE and as a contributor to ATHENA-IP.
