Founded in 1997, LORIA is a joint research unit (UMR7503) under the supervisory authority of CNRS, Inria and the Université de Lorraine, located at CentraleSupélec Metz Campus. Since its creation, LORIA has worked on fundamental and applied research in computer science. LORIA is a member of the Fédération Charles Hermite, which regroups research laboratories in Lorraine's Mathematics and Computer Science Research. LORIA belongs to the scientific cluster AM2I (Automatics, Mathematics, Computer Science and Interactions) and is one of the largest laboratories of the Grand Est Region.


Research work is conducted by 5 departments and 28 teams, around 7 cross-cutting axes
