European Platform on preparedness for nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery
The mission of the NERIS Platform is to establish a forum for dialogue and methodological development between all European organisations and associations taking part in decision making of protective actions in nuclear and radiological emergencies and recovery in Europe.
We have the regret to inform you that following the cancelation of the ERPW 2020, the 6th NERIS Workshop is canceled for 2020 and reported to 2021. Further information on the scheduling will be communicated in coming months.
We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience, stay safe !
The training course on “Assessment of long-term radiological risks from environmental releases: modelling and measurements”, 20 April – 1 May 2020, Roskilde, Denmark is organised by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in cooperation with PDC-ARGOS. The training course is co-funded by the European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research CONCERT.
The course is aimed at providing the participants with an understanding of how to assess by measurements and modelling the long-term radiological risks from releases to the environment of radionuclides. Nuclear power plant accidents will particularly be in focus, but RDD’s will be considered.
The course builds on decades of international research work, e.g., in European projects such as ECP-4, STRATEGY, EURANOS, NERIS TP and PREPARE, including unique experience from extensive practical investigations in contaminated areas and laboratory assessments. It comprises a hands-on introduction to laboratory measurement techniques including state-of-the-art radiochemistry methods for determination of radionuclides that can not easily be determined. It also includes a hands-on decision support modelling session using a state-of-the-art computerised decision support system for nuclear and radiological emergency management.
The course will provide insight into:
Assessment of long-term radiological risks from releases to the environment
Theoretical principles of dosimetry
Implications of different contamination scenario types
Migration of radioactive contaminants in different types of environment
Modelling internal dose and specific factors influencing ingestion dose
Modelling external dose in contaminated inhabited areas
Decision support systems for accident management
Important concepts in sampling and gamma spectrometry
Radiochemical analysis for radionuclides that are difficult to measure
Rapid radiochemistry techniques for multiple samples
Registration: Deadline on 15th of January 2020. Limited to 12 participants
The targeted audience is PhD students and young scientists / advisors. The course will give students 2.5 ECTS points.
There is no registration fee for persons with affiliation to a European organisation. Participants are expected to cover their own travel and subsistence costs (e.g., meals, hotel, visa if needed)
The CONFIDENCE Dissemination workshop “Coping with uncertainties for improved modelling and decision making in nuclear emergencies”, organized by VUJE AS, was held at Lindner Hotel, Bratislava, Slovak Republic in December, 02-05, 2019. About 90 scientists and decision makers attended the workshop.
The dissemination workshop allowed to present the results of the CONFIDENCE project, demonstrated the applicability of the developed methods and tools in interactive discussion sessions and collected feedback from the participants and end users on the work performed.
We are pleased to announce that presentations and posters are now available for download. To do so, access the "Library" panel, "Archives" sub-panel, go to CONCERT -> CONFIDENCE -> CONFIDENCE Dissemination Workshop. For technical reasons, the presentations can't be downloaded as a whole in one time. Be aware that some archives are segmented in parts.
