Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (BRGM)
Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (BRGM) is a public institute acting as the French Geological Survey. BRGM’s research activities gather a large variety of competences in geosciences, environmental monitoring, resources (water, mineral resources), material sciences, microbiology, experimental approaches and modelling. BRGM is acknowledged within France as a leading authority on Water Management and Survey, Soil Protection, Local Point Pollution and Environmental Monitoring (on groundwater resources, soil, industrial sites).
BRGM develops advanced modelling tools addressing reactive transport of organic and inorganic pollutants including microbial processes. BRGM is member of the French Committee of Experts of Prioritization and part of AQUAREF reference laboratory. It has a broad range of analytical facilities for organic and inorganic micropollutants, passive sampling, isotope fingerprinting, microbiology and molecular biology. BRGM is involved in several large-scale monitoring programs on emerging pollutants. BRGM coordinates several European Research Projects on groundwater pollution (Footprint, Pegase, Bridge, Boromed) and is/was partner of other projects such as Water JPI FRAME, Saph Pani, Reclaimwater, Safir, Norman and Aquaterra.
Main tasks in the project:
- WP 2: Leader of WP2. Validation of innovative monitoring strategies and process modelling for assessing efficient effluent treatment by a reed bed followed by dune filtration at Agon-Coutainville in collaboration with IMAGEAU and GEOHYD.
- WP 5: BRGM will be involved with UCRAN in the characterization of policy and governance interfaces.
- WP 6: BRGM will provide process specifications for the development of ICT solutions via a connected decision support system.
- WP8: member of the Project Management Team
