National audienceWe present a description and preliminary results of a large-scale project (COMOP) started in 2009 by the Ministry for Ecology, Sustanable Development and Energy and the National Agency of Frequencies (ANFR). This work is collaborative between the government, municipalities, associations, network operators and agencies. This project concerns GSM and UMTS mobile phone networks. Sixteen voluntary pilot communes were selected to carry out the experiments. This work is based on numerical modeling methods associated with various innovative measurement campaigns. It consists of : determination of current status of exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted by base station antennas by modeling and measurements ; investigations on reducing this exposure while assessing the impact of parallel territorial coverage and quality of service of mobile networks. This study has established a comprehensive scientific realization of human exposure to radiofrequencies from base station antennas. These results constitute an innovative approach and are relevant in terms of dialogue in the current debate about positioning of base stations.Une table-ronde " radiofréquences, santé, environnement " réunissant les parties prenantes impliquées sur la question des radiofréquences a été organisée par le Ministère de la santé au cours du mois de mai 2009. A la suite de cette table-ronde, le gouvernement a retenu plusieurs orientations dont la réalisation de modélisations et de mesures de l'exposition aux champs électromagnétiques radiofréquences émis par les antennes de stations de base de téléphonie mobile, ainsi que des expérimentations de diminution de la puissance émise par ces dernières pour évaluer son impact sur cette exposition et sur la couverture du territoire et la qualité de service des réseaux
