ACRI-ST is an independent R&D company based in Sophia-Antipolis, France. Its team of engineers and researchers provides skills in applied maths, geophysics, mechanics, numerical modeling, for studies, expertise, training, and environmental information services.
ACRI is a private company, created in Sophia-Antipolis in 1989 by five engineers and scientists, founders stockholders still present in the firm. More than 50 researchers, engineers, technicians work in this company for public and private project owners on plans linked to land planning, environment and natural risks. All the techniques of observation (in-situ and satellite), numerical modelling (simulators and chains of algorithmic processing), and physical modelling (models) are exploited. We participate in numerous national and European research programs in narrow collaboration with key laboratories of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) or from Europe. Since our installation in the new offices and laboratories which we accomplished in 2002 thanks to national and regional helps, we exploit entirely our research capabilities in hydraulic and fluid mechanics, particularly a wave and current flume.
ACRI, according to situations, plays different roles, from project owner assistance, technical or scientific control of work, up to the engineering and research unit activity (specialized in mechanics, civil engineering and Earth sciences) or judicial expertise to provide responsibility elements during contradictory procedures.
