Current research topics and programmes

The OPE's work is focused on four main fields of research which have been approved by its Scientific Committee. These areas give rise to different types of study, such as research programmes, theses and work placements, carried out in partnership with various research organisations. These programmes are funded either by the ANDRA or as part of the SOERE-OPE Call for Proposals.

The four fields are:

Certain studies also involve other disciplines and fall within the overlap of a number of different topics.
