CNRS在法国国内的科研机构多为集高等教育及科学研究为一体的科研混合单位（UMR），依托于大学的优势学科平台，UMR在相关领域的研究实力在法国乃至全球处于领先地位 。同时，CNRS也拥有36个国际科研混合单位 (UMI)。CNRS自1995年在北京设立代表处以来，已成为中法两国科技合作交流的重要桥梁，并将持续不断地促进两国之间的战略性合作 。
The Institute of Chemistry (INC) is a national public research institute in France and a subsidiary of the National Center for Scientific Research. CNRS, France's National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), was founded on October 19, 1939, affiliated to the Ministry of Higher Education and Research of France. It is the largest government research institute in France, the largest basic scientific research institute in Europe, and one of the top scientific research institutions in the world.
Most of CNRS 'research institutions in France are hybrid research units (UMR) integrating higher education and scientific research. Relying on the university's superior discipline platform, UMR's research strength in related fields is in a leading position in France and even the world. CNRS also has 36 International Research Mixed Units (UMI). Since its establishment in Beijing in 1995, CNRS has become an important bridge of scientific and technological cooperation and exchanges between China and France, and will continue to promote the strategic cooperation between the two countries.
Research units in research centers are generally small in size, and they mainly fall into three types: directly affiliated research units (UPR), collaborative research units (UPA), and mixed research units (UMR). The first type of unit is the research institution affiliated to the research center itself, whose personnel and funds come from the research center itself. The latter two types of research units are jointly established by CNRS, universities and other French departments, and the input in personnel and funds shall be negotiated by the participants at the time of establishment.
Among the nearly 1300 research institutes in CNRS, about 200 are directly affiliated with CNRS, making up the smallest proportion. There are more than 1,000 collaborative and mixed research units. In recent years, CNRS attaches great importance to the construction and development of mixed research units, which has become a new feature of its institutional construction. At present, the number of mixed research units is over 500, and they are not very different from collaborative research units in nature. Collaborative research units developed earlier (in 1966), which were mainly established by research centers through the signing of contracts with universities; Mixed research units have only been developed in the last decade and involve a wider range of institutions, including enterprises and other public and private institutions. The parties not only have financial and human input, but they also participate in the management of the hybrid research unit.
CNRS, France's premier institution for multidisciplinary research, conducts research in the fields of science, technology and society. It covers all aspects of science: mathematics, physics, Information and communication science and technology, nuclear and high-energy physics, Earth and space sciences, chemistry, life sciences, humanities and social sciences, environmental sciences, and engineering sciences. These disciplines are distributed among nine institutions that develop and coordinate their research efforts in their respective fields of activity, one of which is the Institute of Chemistry (INC) of the French National Centre for Scientific Research.
The research interests of the Institute of Chemistry (INC) are all related to the manufacture of new compounds, the understanding of chemical reactions, and the interpretation and prediction of more precise relationships between the structures and properties of atomic compounds.
