The Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform has launched a public consultation on Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA).
This is the first time that the Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform will update this strategic document. The Platform believes that the Agenda needed to be revised as the needs for nuclear research in Europe have evolved since 2009. With a strong commitment ... read more
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 Conference on Euratom Research and Training in Reactor Systems (FISA 2013) will be held from 14 to 17 October 2013 in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The development and safe operation of nuclear installations in Europe is of vital importance for the future of nuclear energy. Helping ensure the safe generation of nuclear power has always been one of the top priorities of the Euratom Framework ... 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
The First Annual Workshop of the FIRST-Nuclides Project will take place from 9 to 11 October 2012 in Budapest, Hungary.
The FIRST-Nuclides project aims to provide for an improved understanding of radionuclides released from disposed high burn-up UO2 spent nuclear fuel. The knowledge and data obtained is expected to lead to increased confidence in experts' prediction capability.
The main focus of the ... read more
The safe disposal of radioactive waste is a challenge that requires significant research and analysis. With components that still pose significant dangers to humans and the environment even after thousands of years, there is little room for error. Research efforts are ongoing around the world, with various standards and methodologies being developed.
During its three-year run, the EU-funded PAMINA ('Performance ... read more
European research and innovation efforts are set to receive a significant increase in funding with the announcement of the largest set of calls for proposals ever under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Worth a total of EUR 8.1 billion, projects funded by these calls are open to organisations and businesses in all EU Member States, FP7 partner states and specifically eligible countries.
The calls ... read more
The 'INSOTEC project seminar' will take place from 21 to 22 March 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.
Funded by the European Union within the Seventh EURATOM Framework Programme, the 'International socio-technical challenges for geological disposal' (INSOTEC) project has sought to identify and clarify socio-political challenges with regard to high level radioactive waste management, focussing notably on the proposed ... read more
The 'CROCK project workshop' will take place from 22 to 24 May 2012 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The event will look at the work of the EU-funded 'Cystalline Rock retention processes' (CROCK) project. CROCK is seeking to provide waste management organisations with a tool for improving the situation in forthcoming site investigation programmes. It is also working on safety statement and measurement for crystalline ... read more
