Brunot Chareyron, France
2016 in Johannesburg
In 1993, at the age of 28, physicist Bruno Chareyron became head of the CRIIRAD scientific laboratory, which was founded in 1986 to obtain reliable data after the Chernobyl accident. Since then, Chareyron has travelled the world with his laboratory: around the uranium mines in Niger, in Chernobyl, but also in the uranium mines of France. And always in the service of the Enlightenment.
