About us

The LIA Origins has been renewed for the 2013-16 years by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the CNRS.

China and France have signed in October, 22th 2008, in Beijing, an agreement to create an International Associated laboratory called "Origins" in the field of Astrophysics. Origins activities include research on the origin of the matter and energy in the Universe, origins of the galaxies and heavy elements and origins of planets including those possibly hosting life. Its main goals is to favour and support collaborations between chinese and french research teams, in both science and instrumentation.
