The Lyon Center (LyC) was established to promote international joint research activities which the IFS faculty members and graduate students staying at Universite de Lyon (INSA Lyon, Ecole Centrale de Lyon) carry out. Especially, we explore interdisciplinary science based on materials science and fluid science to answer current social challenges in the fields of transportation, energy and engineeringfor health.
