Abstract : The project of creating in France, a multipurpose Center of oceanographic research dates back to 1961. To remedy this geographic dispersion, the Fifth Plan Research Commission and the General Delegation to Scientific and Technical Research had proposed the creation of a multipurpose Center upon the Atlantic Ocean, specifically at Brest. CNEXO (National Center for the Exploitation of Oceans) presently is undertaking the construction of this Center. (Author)
