The Ecogeos team offers its services for expertise and consultancy missions applied to infrastructures. Acknowledged for our technical and scientific expertise, we are fully committed to offering each of our clients an optimized conception approach for their infrastructure projects.
Ecogeos offers the following services:
On behalf of firms, public authorities as well as institutional partners in France and abroad, Ecogeos conducts studies and produces technical and economic data for the conception and optimization of treatment infrastructures.
With the expertise of its team of engineers, Ecogeos is able to contribute to numerous technical guides. Some of them have become references at the national scale:
Ecogeos distinguishes itself by its ability to mobilize transversal skills to accompany its clients in their projects: environmental engineering and social sciences are associated according to the needs. Our expertise in waste characterization provides us knowledge about waste flows on territories and is a support for prevention and governance efforts for waste managements.
Our skills in design and conducting of surveys are useful to analyze the practices and needs of communities as well as territorial issues to which public authorities are confronted.
Coupled with regulatory and economic analyses, these diagnoses lead Ecogeos to identify action levers and to provide recommendations, within the framework of Local Prevention Plans or Zero Waste initiatives for example.
Ecogeos is at the heart of an approach to innovation through its transdisciplinary research activities. The “Research and innovation” branch enables us to develop new knowledge and expertise that can be useful to the two other activity branches for their missions. It also leads us to offer research services for industrials, associations, public authorities and institutions.
The Research and Innovation branch covers the following activities:
Research works conducted by Ecogeos rely on crossed skills in environmental engineering and social science in order to enlighten the complex stakes of the environment and territories. Thanks to their solid training, Ecogeos research engineers show great methodologic rigor and writing skills.

Ecogeos is part of a dynamic of synergy implementation between academic, institutional and industrial actors through the development of public-private partnerships. Collaboration agreements were signed in this sense with the University of Grenoble, the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) of Lyon and IRSTEA for the sharing of laboratory devices and the education of engineers-in-training and doctors (CIFRE agreements: Industrial Agreements for Training through Research).
Thanks to its contribution to research, Ecogeos received support from financial partners such as the BPI (French Public Investment Bank) and obtained the “Expert organism” certification.
