The “Centre Lyonnais d’Acoustique“, CeLyA, has been funded in 2011 as a “Laboratoire d’Excellence” by the French Ministry of Research.

An international jury has selected a total of 170 projects in all disciplines, from pure mathematics to social sciences. CeLyA was awarded a total financial support of 6M€ for a period of nearly 10 years (600k€/year), and it is the only LabEx devoted entirely to acoustics.

CeLyA is an alliance of the main research teams working in acoustics in Lyon in:

- Engineering acoustics: aeroacoustics, vibroacoustics, building acoustics and non-destructive evaluation.

Medical applications of acoustics: Ultrasonic imaging and therapy by ultrasound

- Sound perception: Sound quality, psychoacoustics, auditory perception and neurosciences

Eight research teams are participating in CeLyA; around 80 permanent researchers are involved and the total staff, including PhD and Postdoctoral students, amounts to 150 people.
