EDF, Electricité de France, is represented through its Research and Development Branch and more particularly its Industrial Risk Management Department. As EDF has to manage its industrial risks, knowledge is developed on environmental risk anticipation, technical risks reduction related to components of its complex systems. Risks are considered over the whole industrial system, and include risks driven by human and organizational factors. Reduction and mitigation barriers are defined and decision making is implemented in order to decide to install them. Beyond improved risk analysis methods developed to ensure nuclear power plants performance, new methods are developed to integrate other types of risks (technical but also human and organizational aspects) and uncertainties evaluation are done.

Why we joined EU-VRi?

We joined the network when EU-VRi took the leadership to build the iNTeg-Risk proposal as a project issued from the ideas and priorities defined by the European Technical Platform for Industrial Safety.
As we expressed it in the MoU ensuring the sustainability of iNTeg-Risk project results, our need is to coordinate the partners in order to initiate new projects (PPPs, projects, CAs…) within Horizon 2020.
