R+i Alliance projects research
The International Research Centre for Applied Hydroinformatics (CIRAH), an entity within SAFEGE’s Research, Innovation and Sustainable Development Department, is one of six research centres accredited by R+i Alliance, the organisation tasked with developing, financing and conducting research programmes for the SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT Group.
ECORES: trials and assessment of minimally invasive gas and water pipe installation technologies
LOTTERY: heat recovery in wastewater treatment plants
Other research projects
SYRACUSE: research project for the French National Research Agency to optimise the management of wastewater, waste and energy at different spatial scales GIREL: infrastructure management project with a view to the ecological restoration of coastal areas (project undertaken for the PACA Marine Competitiveness Centre and the Port of Marseille)
Our Workshops are working groups that come together to reflect on themes of interest to SAFEGE. Each workshop addresses a specific issue, generally on an annual basis. Examples of Workshops:
ReUse: current situation and prospects for the reuse of wastewater in France and internationally
Recovery of resources from waste: foresight study on the different methods of recovery
Life-cycle costing in our engineering services
Sustainable urban development practices: inventory and assessment of alternative technologies and practices
Biodiversity: inclusion of biodiversity considerations in our engineering services
The CIFRE scheme (Industrial Agreement for Training Through Research), introduced over 30 years ago, subsidises French companies taking on a PhD student who is then at the centre of a research collaboration with a public laboratory.
Examples of theses conducted under the scheme:
