UMR 5138 (mixed research unit) was set up in 2001 and is called "Archeometry and archaeology: origin, dating and materials technologies".It was created with a view to boosting the archeometric potential of the Lyon region and to develop joint programmes between the Laboratoire de Céramologie [Ceramology laboratory], the Centre de Datation par le Radiocarbone [Carbon-dating centre], and the Earth sciences UFR (training and research unit).The UMR then gradually grew thanks to the creation of a regional archaeology team, which enabled the Centre de recherche préhistorique Rhône-Alpes de Valence [Rhone-Alpes and Valence prehistoric research centre] to be attached, and agreements to be signed with the French ministry for culture and the INRAP (underway).The UMR is currently extending its research activities to cover a regional, national and international area, for both archaeology and archeometry.

The plan on assessing aviation safety surveillance capacity to be conducted by FAA (US Federal Aviation Administration) against CAAV (International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) Program) has been delayed.Chronological dating, or simply dating, is the process of attributing to an object or event a date in the past, allowing such object or event to be located in a previously established chronology.This usually requires what is commonly known as a "dating method".However, FAA has recently requested the signing of the agreement by mail.After the signing, FAA would send specialists to Vietnam, and the technical review will finish in July at the earliest.
