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. The Institute includes a state-of-the-art microscopy laboratory, video conferencing capability enabling global coverage, teaching facilities and offices to house both permanent staff and guest researchers. One of the core missions of the MAI is education and training. Courses on material aging are being developed and offered to graduate and postgraduate students as well as to working engineers in the nuclear industry. In addition, seminars and workshops are organized by the MAI to promote discussions and knowledge sharing on technical subjects. Currently, around 80 researchers and technicians are working on MAI projects, most of them permanent EDF employees.
