Modelling and measurement training course, 20 April – 1 May 2020, Roskilde Denmark

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)

CONFIDENCE Dissemination Workshop "Coping with uncertainties for improved modelling and decision making in nuclear emergencies”, Bratislava, Slovak Republic, 02-05 December, 2019

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.

New version of the NERIS SRA (November 2019)

We are pleased to announce the publication of the new version of the NERIS SRA (November 2019):

It results from a revision in 2019 by the NERIS R&D Committee, comments and propositions from members of the platform, stakeholders and results from past and ongoing European projects.

In addition, you can download the NERIS gap analysis 2019:

PODIUM Dissemination workshop and EAN 19th workshop Innovative ALARA Tools, Athens, Greece, 26 and 27 – 28 November 2019

Aims and objectives of the workshops

Innovations in instrumentation, computing and information technology have provided numerous tools for improving our day-to-day lives. In the same way, new and innovative approaches to radiation protection (RP) could also be developed, in particular in the ALARA process. However, as with most new technologies, issues and challenges need to be identified and tackled. The PODIUM Project and the European ALARA Network have come together to organize a joint workshop to present PODIUM results, innovative ALARA tools and discuss broadly their use in advancing RP and ALARA.
