Laboratoire d’Étude des Microstructures et de Mécanique des Matériaux (LEM3)
The Laboratory of Studies of Microstructures and Mechanics of Materials (LEM3) is a joint research center of the University of Lorraine, the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the Arts et Métiers. The LEM3 is one of the largest research institute for physics of materials and engineering within France. It is located in Metz near the tripoint along the junction of France, Germany, and Luxembourg. Therefore, It forms a central place for Science in Europe, so that more than 250 scientists from France and around the world work for performing world-class research in Materials Sciences, Mechanics and Processes. By conducting fundamental and applied research, researchers at LEM3 works on long-term solutions for major challenges facing Society, Industry and Science.
Some key numbers about the LEM3:
- 106 Permanent Researchers and 19 Engineers
- 88 PhD Students
- 16 Postdocs
- 21 administrative members
