This Workshop, organised in cooperation with the University of Milano, was an opportunity to discuss and exchange with NERIS Members, International organisations and European Research communities on priorities for the NERIS Platform. The Workshop gathered 68 participants and 37 papers dedicated to the 3 research areas of the NERIS Strategic Research Agenda and the implementation of BSS on emergency and recovery issues were presented.
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:
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.
Pre-registration deadline: June 30, 2015
15th-17th June 2015
The first International Conference on Risk Perception, Communication and Ethics of Exposures to Ionising Radiation (RICOMET 2015) will be held from 15th to 17th of June 2015 in Brdo Castle, Slovenia. The conference is organised as part of 6.3 task in the PREPARE project and conjunction with similar tasks in the OPERRA and EAGLE projects.
The conference will be an opportunity for extensive exchange of results from the scientific research and FP7 projects and discussions on public communication, risk perception and ethics in the field of all nuclear applications (e.g. industry, medicine, security), natural radioactivity (e.g. radon) and radiological protection (in nuclear and radiological emergency management, low doses, communicating uncertainty, mass media communication, public understanding of ionizing radiation, EU research needs …)

7th-9th October 2015
The Training Course on Analytical Platform - Scientific methods and tools for information collection and exchange is organised by KIT (Germany), NCSRD (Greece), CIEMAT (Spain), VUJE (Slovak Republic), SCK-CEN (Belgium) and MUTADIS (France) in cooperation with the NERIS Platform in the framework of the EC FP7 PREPARE Project.
The course, limited to 24 participants, will take place on October 7-9, 2015 in Trnava (Slovak Republic).
Pre-registration deadline: April 30, 2015
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.
Registration (before 15 July 2015).
There is no registration fee, however, participants are expected to cover their own travel and subsistence costs (including meals, hotel room and Visa costs).
