Over the past two years, the number of accidents at industrial sites has increased by 34%. In 2018, with 1112 accidents recorded in France in the classified installations, tends to show an increasing evolution of the accident compared to the years 2017 and 2016 with 978 and 827 respectively (source BARPI, Bureau des Risques Pollutions Industriels).
On September 26th, 2019 a fire occurred at the Lubrizol factory, 3 km from the city center of Rouen. Following this event, a 22 km black smoke plume spread over the city and its urban agglomeration. This industrial accident has once again raised issues around public health, soil pollution, agriculture, urban development and regulation that are of concern to citizens.
Aware of providing answers and concrete actions to the problem of industrial accidents, the ANR in partnership with the Normandy Region and the Hauts-de-France Region are launching a Research-Action SIOMRI Call for Proposals (Innovative and Operational Solutions in Industrial Risk Management in Urban and Dense Environments) to finance urgent and rapid projects whose results could be expected in the next 12 to 24 months.
A multidisciplinary and partnership approach is encouraged to better understand all the societal issues inherent in a sustainable city.
All scientific communities in France, private partners and end-users related to this topic are involved.
You can find all the information about the terms of submission in the text of the Call for proposals RA-SIOMRI.
The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
