Résumé du projet

The CRITEX project has entered in it maturation phase. All the equipments have been acquired and all the prototypes initially promised have been developed and installed in the field (Tranche 1). The CRITEX program feeds the RBV and H+ network observatories and inter-observatory projects have been initiated. Three sites have been particularly instrumented in order to capture the high frequency temporal signal, Agrhys in Brittany, Strengbach in Alsace and Orgeval near Paris. The synergy between disciplines and between field sites and techniques developers is taking shape progressively using the tranche T2 funds. CRITEX is implying more than 80 researcher personnel. 15 PhD thesis have been defended or initiated within CRITEX. CRITEX has generated more than 11 millions euros of co-funding, including European funds. It is providing to the observatories a clear added value in the regional socio-economical ecosystem. CRITEX has increased significantly the visibility of the national CZ community both at the National and international level. It has nucleated the national Research Infrastructure OZCAR and has been incorporated in the H2020 eLTER, advance-eLTER and ESFRI eLTER European projects, in which the CZ community is associated to the LTSER (Zones Ateliers) community.
