On February 22, 2017, Grenoble Institute of Technology and University of Bristol signed an Erasmus partnership agreement in nuclear field, one of Phelma’s school main specialties.

Starting in summer 2017, Phelma’s students in Reactor Physics and Nuclear Engineering Specialty (GEN) and Material for Nuclear Energy (MaNuEn) will be able to participate in research projects at University of Bristol. In exchange, UK students of Nuclear Science and Engineering Masters of Science may attend classes at Phelma.

France is seen as one of the most important leaders in nuclear field regarding industrial activity and academics. Industrially, French electricity giant EDF is UK’s most significant nuclear player, owning British Energy Group since 2008, and its 8 nuclear power plants (of the 10 plants of the country). Lately, the UK – in desperate need to renew its energy supply – agreed with EDF to build two EPR-type nuclear reactors in south-west of England, with a commissioning planned on 2025. Academically, Grenoble Institute of Technology has strong and lasting links with the EDF group, ISNTN (National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology) and CEA (Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission). This newly signed partnership therefore offers new opportunities to improve Bristol’s students experience.

Exchanges between the two partners are managed through an Erasmus agreement, allowing students as well as institutions’ staff to travel, exchange and eventually build strong cooperation ties in research.
