PLATFORMS OF INNOVATION, VALORIZATION, ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGICAL OPTIMIZATION
Created in 2016 thanks to the support of the Centre-Val de Loire region, the PIVOTS program is focused on monitoring the quality of the environment. Its goal is to preserve natural resources (soils, subsoil, surface water, groundwater, air) at a time when they are doubly threatened by human activities and climate change.
A unique device in France
The aim of the PIVOTS program is to integrate academic actors and companies from basic research to the validation of products and services. This interaction between actors will therefore support the emergence and development of an economic sector.
The PIVOTS program is a set, unique in France, of 7 experimental and analytical platforms. They provide scientists and entrepreneurs with experimental, measurement and laboratory and field tests for innovative projects in the field of engineering and environmental metrology.
PLATFORMS IN CENTRE – VAL DE LOIRE REGION
Laboratories and experimental fields in the heart of the region
The infrastructures of the 7 PIVOTS platforms are mainly located in the Orléans metropolis (45) in the Centre – Val de Loire region.
The PESAt, PESAa and O-ZNS platforms also have experimental sites in Loiret (45), Cher (18), Eure-et-Loir (28) and Indre-et-Loire (37).
