After an initial guidance phase jointly carried out by GENES and INSEE in 2009, CASD was selected as an “Equipment of Excellence” in the 2010 selection process of the ‘Investments of the Future’ program. With this recognition, CASD, with GENES as its acting coordinator, was granted funding managed by the National Research Agency through the end of 2019 (n° ANR-10-EXPQ-17).

As part of a consortium agreement, five other institutions have endorsed the objectives pursued by the Equipex CASD project. Under this agreement, each of the 6 members of the consortium participates in steering the project as well as the operation and development of the equipment, whether through annual financial contributions or in kind (staffing).
