Biographical Notes

Bruno Chareyron, born in 1964, has been Director of the CRIIRAD laboratory in Valence, France since 1993. He has an Engineering Diploma in Energy and Nuclear Technology – ENSIEG (Electricity) & ENSPG (Physics) from Grenoble, France and a DEA in Nuclear Engineering and Particle Physics. His experience is especially in the area of radiation detection and environmental impact assessment. He has conducted studies dealing with the radiological impact of nuclear full chain facilities (uranium mines, nuclear plants, reprocessing plants, research reactors), military facilities, and hospitals.

In 1999 Bruno Chareyron was an expert in the “Groupe Radioecology Nord Cotentin” that assessed the impact of the nuclear facilities at Cap de la Hague (reprocessing plant, nuclear reactor, military facilities, nuclear waste repository). He has been conducting an independent review of the radioactive discharge monitoring and environmental monitoring of the Fessenheim and Le Blayais nuclear power plants in France.

He has worked with people from, amongst other places, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Niger, Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, UK, and Japan; and with a wide range of backgrounds, e.g. experts, civil servants, scientists, operators, citizens, elected people, journalists, NGO leaders, and unions.
