Welcome !

Dear visitors,

This website is to introduce you M&U, a Geology company which aims to link academic and industry research to create value while pushing back frontiers of knowledge in Geosciences. This idea came when I realised that basic needs of these two apparent separated worlds, Academic & Industry, are actually behind their neighbour’s door.

Let me introduce you one of the best answer to this major challenge: “Imagining Rifting 2”. To be held in SW France  next fall, this event aims at gathering outstanding geoscientists of both academic and industry world to tackle fundamental issues about rifting processes.  We firmly believe that combining diverse points of views and disciplines should help to better define and challenge unknowns while exploring the true diversity of rifted margins. More details will be available soon.

Because facing new challenges is often the fuel to get further in Science, M&U should be a new opportunity to make and share great geology… Through Research…

Geologically,

E. M.
