Exclusive Pre-conference Site Visit

During the afternoon of Tuesday 15th November 2016, a limited number of conference attendees will have the unique opportunity to visit the The Materials Ageing Institute.

The Institute is a utility-oriented research center founded by EDF in 2008 and cofinanced by EPRI (US), KEPCO (J), CGNPC (CN), REA (RU), EDF Energy (UK), TEPCO (J), MHI (J), CRIEPI(J), CEA (F) and Areva (F).

The MAI is led by EDF, which from the start invested heavily in dedicated experimental facilities, IT systems and a new building to house the MAI at EDF’s Les Renardières Research Centre, southeast of Paris, France.
There is no extra charge to join the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated on first come first served basis.
