The Final Conference on 'Long-term Performance of the Engineered Barrier System (PEBS)' will be held from 6 to 7 February 2014 in Hannover, Germany.
Nuclear energy generation results in long lived, highly radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel. The ultimate management solution for this waste is disposal in deep geological formations. In several disposal concepts radioactive waste packages are protected ... read more

The Eighth European Commission Conference on the Management of Radioactive Waste will take place from 14 to 16 October 2013 in Vilnius, Lithuania.
Radioactive waste is not only produced in those states that use nuclear power for electricity generation, but also by many other applications, be it radiotherapies or industrial tests. It's safe management is therefore a challenge for all Member States, irrespective ... read more

The 'Hands on Training in Nuclear Chemistry' will take place on from 3 to 14 December 2012 in Prague, Czech Republic.
The lack of trained nuclear chemical specialists has been identified in all branches of the nuclear sector and also in other areas where skills in NRC are required, such as radiopharmacy, nuclear medicine, radiation protection, radioecology, and many others. Retraining general chemistry ... read more
