2009 – 2012
Cédric GERVAISE and Lucia DI IORIO, both already working in marine passive acoustics for many years, started combining their research disciplines and scientific cultures in 2009 in Brest (Brittany). This twinning and passion for the exploration of underwater soundscapes eventually resulted in a mutualistic symbiosis that they wanted to consolidate into a research program.
To further consolidate the work of chorus, we founded the CHORUS Research Institute (IdR). C. Gervaise, L. Di Iorio and J. Lossent share its governance. CHORUS IdR is holder also holder of a research chair together with the Grenoble INP Foundation.
