The UPR 2002 MAP was created the 1st of January 2024 – This website is still under construction and might be modified in the coming weeks.

The MAP laboratory is a Proprietary Research Unit (UPR) of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Humanities and Social Sciences, created in 2024 and a descendant of a Joint Research Unit of the same name, UMR CNRS/MC 3495 MAP.

One of the distinctive traits of the laboratory’s approach is a recurrent to-and-fro between theoretical, methodological and technological research and the implementation of concrete solutions in the form of research prototypes open to academic and societal partnerships.
