The research themes developed in the laboratory focus on both fundamental and methodological aspects - models, new concepts – as well as practical achievements: application development and software platforms, design and production of electronic devices, etc.

The areas of expertise of the GREYC are: modeling and analysis of algorithms, information security, decision support and data mining, image and signal processing and analysis, human language and document technologies, identification and control, microelectronics, instrumentation and sensors.

The GREYC develops its research with the permanent concern of technology transfer and research training of junior researchers. Many collaborations, often multidisciplinary (mathematics, human language, geography, psychology, medicine, chemistry, physics), at the regional, national (CNRS, CEA, INRIA, IRD, etc.), international (DARPA, European programs: ITEA, EUREKA & FP7 NoE), and industrial levels (Orange Labs, NXP, Thales, EADS, SNECMA, GE Healthcare, Gemalto, etc.) illustrate the exceptional dynamism of the laboratory.

Most of the members of the Laboratory GREYC are principal investigators or members of several national and international projects and grants (ANR especially), and are also involved in several industrial partnerships.? The GREYC also participates in several competitiveness clusters (TES, Mov'eo, Equine, Cap Digital, Systematic). The economic impact of the scientific activity of the GREYC is illustrated by a growing number of patents, supervision of PhD students (26 during 2011 and currently 7 CIFRE funding) and spin offs (six created by members of GREYC since 2007).
