Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie
Observer et comprendre l'Univers
The CNRS has established 6 files which define the procedure to be implemented in the following cases: 1 ° / Suspected symptomatic case at home 2 ° / Suspected symptomatic case at work 3 ° / Confirmed symptomatic case (positive test) 4 ° / Confirmed a symptomatic case (positive test) 5 ° / Agent in contact with a recognized case within the home 6 ° / Agent in contact with a recognized case outside the home
Protective measures, face-to-face and teleworking, conferences, health, missions and travels … All the necessary updated information is available on the intranet du CNRS.
Who are we ?
IRAP teams work on the study and understanding of the Universe and its content: the Earth as a planet, its ionized spatial environment, the sun and its planets, the stars and their planetary systems, the interstellar environment, galaxies, compact objects, the very first stars and the primordial Big Bang. This is done through observation, modeling and theory, instrumentation and laboratory experiments.
With a staff of technical personnel qualified in the field of design, construction, integration and operation of instruments on the ground and in space, IRAP is a major center of instrumentation in astrophysics , at an international level. He also participates in numerous national observation services (SNO) of INSU.
This Joint Research Unit (JRU 5277) is affiliated with the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), Paul Sabatier University – Toulouse III (UPS), and also has the supervision of the National Center for Space Studies (CNES). It is also a member of the Midi-Pyrénées Observatory (OMP).
