Organization > Organizing committee

 

The organizing structure is the CR2P (Centre of Research on Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments - paleo.mnhn.fr). This laboratory is composed of lecturers and professors from the MNHN (National Museum of Natural History) and the Sorbonne University and of researchers from the CNRS (National Scientific Research Center). Altogether, the CR2P includes 41 tenured scientists, 27 postdocs and PhD students, and 27 engineers, technicians and administrative staff. This makes it one of the largest research laboratories in the world exclusively devoted to Palaeontology. The French Geological Society (SGF) will support the congress organization.
