Training course - 19-23 June 2017, Gomel (Belarus Republic)

house-RIRThe Training Course on “Late Phase Nuclear Accident Preparedness and Management” is organised by the Nuclear Protection Evaluation Center (CEPN - France) and the Institute of Radiology (RIR - Belarus) in cooperation with the European platform NERIS on emergency and post-accident preparedness and response.

The course will take place from June 19-23, 2017 at the Institute of Radiology (RIR) in Gomel, Belarus.

The main objective of the course for late phase nuclear accident prepardness and management is to provide principles and practical guidance for the key players involved in the preparedness and recovery of living conditions in contaminated areas in the aftermath of a nuclear/radiological accident.

The course offers a comprehensive overview of the various dimensions and challenges of the long-term rehabilitation. It includes also practical elements for the implementation of countermeasures for managing long-term contaminated rural and urban environments, notably through the planning of direct meetings and dialogue with local stakeholders (inhabitants, pupils, local authorities, etc.) living in the areas affected by the Chernobyl accident. 

The course is based on international recommendations and on the material produced and developed in several European and international projects: ETHOS, SAGE, FARMING, CORE, EURANOS, NERIS TP, etc. as well as the first results obtained under PREPARE and SHAMISEN programs. The course is made of lectures, practical working sessions, technical visits and discussions. It strongly relies on the practical experience of Belarussian organisations in the management of the Chernobyl consequences as well as on the first lessons from the management of the consequences of the Fukushima accident.
