The partnership is in keeping with AREVA's commitment to hire disabled workers in France following the agreement signed by the group in May 2007.

AREVA will support disabled French teams as they prepare for the next Paralympics in Beijing. As official partner, the group will provide financial support to the 250-strong French delegation, of which 170 are athletes.
