The LVA is involved in two international laboratories :
The Centre Acoustique Jacques Cartier is an IRP (International Research Project, formerly LIA) accredited by the CNRS. It combines internationally renowned acoustics laboratories in Sherbrooke (Quebec, Canada), Lyon and Le Mans (France).The Centre Acoustique Jacques Cartier brings together in a common structure internationally renowned laboratories in acoustics: the CRASH-UdeS (Centre de Recherche Acoustique-Signal-Humain de l'Université de Sherbrooke), the LVA (Laboratoire Vibrations Acoustique) at INSA Lyon, the LMFA (Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides et d'Acoustique) and the LTDS (Laboratoire de Tribologie et Dynamique des Systèmes) at the École Centrale de Lyon, and the LAUM (Laboratoire d'Acoustique de l'Université du Mans)The Centre Acoustique Jacques Cartier aims to be an international centre for acoustic engineering, with a focus on vibroacoustics, aeroacoustics, signal processing and sound perception.
The UNSW – INSA Lyon International Laboratory was established between UNSW Sydney and INSA Lyon and is for research collaboration in the field of machine condition monitoring (MCM) and tribology. The collaboration aims to advance and promote MCM through conducting innovative research, actively engaging with industry partners and jointly supervising and training young researchers and practitioners in the field.
