The verdict from the Hcéres: LGP2 is unique at international levelAdobe PDF DocumentIn January, as part of its 2019-2020 assessment campaign (wave A), the High Council for the Assessment of Research and Higher Education (Hcéres) audited the Laboratory of Pulp and Paper Science and Graphic Arts (UMR CNRS 5518). Published at the end of April, its report offers a glowing assessment, stating that the laboratory “is committed to an integrated approach in the field of plant fibre valorization, which it implements in brilliant fashion. Despite its modest size and thanks to a global vision reinforced by various areas of excellence, notably in biorefinery, nanocrystalline cellulose and both 2D and 3D printing, LGP2 is a unique group at international level.”
