The expertise of the researchers who belong to the UMR G-EAU is consolidated in teams that are created for specific projects, and may change over the course of a five-year project but never less than annually.
Each team tackles a question primarily focused on water, its valuation, a type of process or regulation, or methodological issues.
Initially, nine teams are built, but the number may change over the course of the five year period depending on how the research question evolves.
Each G-EAU researcher contributes to 1, 2 or 3 teams. Cross fertilization between the teams occurs thanks to interchanges between these people, but also through contributions to joint projects and the consolidation of different disciplines.
