Participation in projects under regional EU policies

Support to the French authorities on topical issues

As a provider of technical support for the French authorities in its topic areas, BRGM contributes to:

  • the promotion of French policies and approaches in new developments at EU level, in particular by contributing to expert groups and standards definitions (CEN);
  • exchanges of good practice and experience in handling broader and more complex issues.
