In 2021, BRGM refined its organisation, improved its financial health and strengthened its scientific engagement with partners and clients.
Resilience during the pandemic and good financial performance
Like all businesses, BRGM has learned to live with the coronavirus, consistently anticipating government health measures.
Having made significant profits in 2021, the organisation was able to approve the refurbishment of BRGM laboratories.
Strengthening scientific activities
On a scientific level, BRGM seized the opportunity to apply to calls for tenders to participate in exploratory research programmes (PEPR) commissioned by the ANR. It has already been selected to lead the OneWater Exploratory Research Programme in collaboration with CNRS and INRAE.
BRGM was involved in securing France’s supplies of strategic metals by actively contributing to a report, which led to a series of decisions announced by the government.
