Historically, Arronax was constructed on the joint initiative of the Subatech laboratory (CNRS, Mines Nantes, University of Nantes) and the Nantes-Angers Cancer and Immunology Research Center (Inserm, University of Nantes, CNRS), for whom it represents a major research tool.

Arronax is open to the entire research community in the nuclear field for health. We prioritize collaborations over the long term.

Since it opened, the GIP Arronax has collaborated with the following laboratories (non-exhaustive list):
