ECTP will welcome CEREMA as a new Member during its upcoming General Assembly

The Centre for Studies and Expertise on Risks, the Environment, Mobility and Planning, CEREMA, is the French major public institution for developing and capitalising on public expertise in the fields of planning, regional cohesion, and ecological and energy transition.

lt offers unique expertise in the areas of mobility, transport infrastructure, urban planning and construction, resource conservation, risk prevention, road and maritime safety, and the ability to integrate these different skills into developing territorial projects.

As a multidisciplinary scientific and technical resource and expertise centre, CEREMA assists in developing, implementing and assessing public policies, at national and local levels.

CEREMA provides direct support to governmental services, local authorities, and companies (project management assistance, specific operational missions, etc.). lt develops, experiments and disseminates innovative solutions.

With more than 2,800 employees throughout metropolitan France and a long-standing knowledge of local issues and contexts, CEREMA is resolutely committed to the challenge of sustainable regional development, in order to define the public policies of tomorrow.

CEREMA's activities in the building domain aim to optimize the performances of buildings (new or old) and to support property managers. The main topics deal with the energy and environmental performance of buildings, the measurement of the intrinsic performance of buildings and the reduction of environmental impacts, behaviours of bio based  materials including mechanical, thermal and hydro thermal transfers, and acoustical performances, quality of indoor environments, reduction of pollutions (radon, noise, reduction of pollutants by efficient ventilation devices, etc).
Recent developments focus on local heat zones in cities, their origin and the ability to mitigate them by various management strategies (introducing natural spaces, mitigating interferences, ...).
