The 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, in the framework of the EC FP7 “PREPARE” Project.
The course will take place on September 21-25, 2015 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 for rehabilitation 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 process after a nuclear accident, and also provides practical elements for the implementation of late phase countermeasures in rural and urban contaminated environments. A particular attention is given to “stakeholder engagement” approaches to initiate preparedness processes and to favour the implication of the inhabitants in their own protection as well as in decision making process related to the redeployment of social and economic activities in the affected areas.
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 and NERIS. It is made of lectures, practical working sessions and discussions. It also 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.

The Workshop is organised by IRSN and CEPN in the framework of the WP3 PREPARE Project (dedicated to the management of contaminated goods), in cooperation with the NERIS Platform. The Workshop, held in Paris on November 12-13, 2015 will be an opportunity to discuss and share the PREPARE WP3 results (lessons and conclusion of the Panels meetings organised in 11 countries), in the presence of national stakeholders (Consumers, producers, retailers…), international organisations (European Commission, FAO, WHO, OECD-NEA, IAEA, HERCA, ICRP, …) and Japanese colleagues involved in the management of contaminated products after the Fukushima accident (CRIEPI, University of Fukushima, producers and consumers NGO’s…).
The presentation of the PREPARE WP3 results will be structured in sessions around the main points tackled by the different national stakeholders such as: the preparedness modalities, the management of consumer goods production with the justification of maximum permissible levels and the implementation of optimization of radiological protection principle, the dissemination of information to different publics and the stakeholder participation processes, the role of the market and organization of the trade, the ethical considerations and the development of solidarity.
20th-22th january 2016
The PREPARE Dissemination Workshop "Innovative integrative tools and platforms" will be organised on January 20-22, 2016 in Bratislava (Slovak Republic).
The Workshop will allow to present the results of the PREPARE project and to collect feedback from the participants on the topics of potential future research activities. The knowledge acquired during the project will be disseminated as well as the capability of the developed methods and tools in particular those of the Analytical Platform for collecting information, analysing any nuclear or radiological event and provide information about the consequences and its future development.
Registration deadline: November 30, 2015
The 9th issue of the NERIS Newsletter is now available. This edition is dedicated to the feedback from recent events and the announcements.
The Newsletter includes:
A new version of the NERIS Strategic Research Agenda is available. A consultation process is now engaged. In order to prepare a strategic vision of radiation protection research in Europe with other Platforms (MELODI, ALLIANCE, EURADOS), we need to select a list of high priorities and also to rank these priorities.
As member of the NERIS Platform you are invited to consult the document and fill the grid to select research priorities.
The grid contains two columns: the first column allows ranking the priorities of the SRA with three to five priorities and the second column allows selecting the priorities in terms of synergetic issues with the other platforms for the second OPERRA Call.
