The signing institutions of the IRL MajuLab are CNRS, Université Côte d’Azur, Sorbonne Université, National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University of Singapore. The IRL Majulab is currently directed by Dr Christian Miniatura (CNRS). It is one of the 75 IRL developed by the CNRS with strategic partners across the world and one of the 5 IRL in Singapore.

In Singapore, the historical partner labs are Centre for Quantum Technologies (NUS) and School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (NTU).

In France, the historical partner labs are INPHYNI (UCA) and Laboratoire Kastler-Brossel (SU).
