- The “Laboratoire d’Océanologie et Géosciences” UMR 8187 LOG – CNRS / U. Lille / ULCO.
  This unit is also located along the Jurassic cliffs at Wimereux.

- The “Laboratoire Evolution-Ecologie-Paléontologie” , UMR 8198 EEP – CNRS / U. Lille

At the same time, the “Société Géologique du Nord ” born in 1870 is acting outside the University world to diffuse Geologic information.
