French radwaste agency to cooperate with British Geological Survey

5 May 2009

France's national radioactive waste management agency (Andra) has signed a cooperation deal with the British Geological Survey.

The deal will see mutual exchanges of skills, knowledge and information and a cooperation programme for scientific and technical research. The Memorandum of Understanding will promote common research activities in the field of geosciences, such as the acquisition and interpretation of geophysical measurements to characterise geological formations.

Both Andra and the BGS already benefit from a wide expertise in the exploration and characterisation of suitable sites for the implementation of disposal facilities in deep geological formations in order to isolate and contain radioactive waste over the long term.
