Acoustics & Environment
UMRAE performs research on noise characterization and reduction of its environmental impact.
UMRAE conducts research through interdisciplinary theoretical, numerical, statistical and experimental approaches.
For the benefit of society
Research topics carried out within the UMRAE focus on sound environment both outdoors (urban environment, semi-closed space) and indoors (closed space).
The Joint Research Unit in Environmental Acoustics (UMRAE) is a common laboratory of the French Institute of Science and Technology for Transport, Development and Networks (IFSTTAR) and the Centre for Studies on Risks, Mobility, Land Planning and the Environment (CEREMA). Created on 1st January 2018, it merges groups of researchers, engineers, technical staff and doctoral students from both entities. It carries out research missions related to noise reduction and noise impact on environment.
