The CHARMS project gathers scientists having a strong experience both in geothermal, oil and gas reservoir and radioactive waste disposal modeling. These groups of people have been working together for long date on several projects.

Since the early 1980s, BRGM has contributed to all of the scientific programs in the areas of low, medium and high enthalpy use of geothermal energy in France. It has a long and worldwide experience in the exploration of deep geothermal systems and is involved in numerous international programs. As part of its research missions, BRGM also developed original 3D geomodeling methods for complex systems which are implemented in the GeoModeller software.

The Jean Alexandre Dieudonné Laboratory is a mixed research team between the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Nice Sophia-Antipolis University (UNS). People from the laboratory involved in the charms project are also members of the INRIA COFFEE project team which aims at studying mathematical models issued from environmental and energy management questions. These problems involve unusual coupling, which in turn leads to challenging difficulties for mathematical analysis and the need of innovative and performing numerical schemes. They have a strong experience in petroleum reservoir modeling.

The Jacques Louis Lions Laboratory is a mixed research team between the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and UPMC Sorbonne University. It is the largest laboratory in France and one of the leading in the world for training and research in applied mathematics. Its research interests cover the analysis, modeling and high performance scientific computing of a wide range of processes that can be modeled with partial differential equations.
Maison de la Simulation is a joint laboratory from CEACNRSINRIAParis-Sud and Versailles universities whose objective is to promote the efficient use of High Performance Computing infrastructure, both at the national and European levels. Indeed, achieving the full potential of these facilities requires assembling multidisciplinary teams so as to gather the specific skills and tools designed and optimized for a very high level of parallelism.
Storengy is a subsidiary of ENGIE (formerly GDF SUEZ). Its business is based on recognized expertise in the design and operation of complex industrial sites and a very strong expertise in geology and underground modelling. It has become one of the world leaders in underground natural gas storage. Storengy presently develops low enthalpy geothermal projects in France, and participate to resource assessment and developments for high enthalpy projects in France and abroad.
