Organizing FISA and EuradWaste Conference under the Romanian Presidency of EU Council

Project description

Nuclear safety and radioactive waste management under the spotlight

The main goal of the EU-funded FISRAD project is to organise the international conferences ‘FISA 2019’ and ‘EURADWASTE ’19’, which will be held in Romania. Bringing together researchers and policymakers from different Member States and stakeholders from international organisations, research institutions and businesses, the conferences will encourage open debate on nuclear reactor safety, radioactive waste management and education and training in nuclear science. Amongst others, the project will develop a platform for discussion and networking, communicate achievements in nuclear fission research, foster the visibility of the Euratom Research and Training Programme and disseminate scientific knowledge.


The main objective of the FISRAD project is the organization of the international conference FISA-EuradWaste in 2019. The conference will bring together researchers and policymakers from various member states as well as a range of stakeholders from international organizations, research organizations, businesses, municipalities and civil society to encourage open debate around key energy and nuclear research and training issues. The program of the conference will consist of plenary sessions, parallel sessions, a young generation session, poster session, final-workshops, technical visits, conference dinner and cultural side events.
FISA-EuradWaste 2019 is planned to be co-organized by the European Commission under the auspices of the Romanian Presidency of the EU Council and to be held in Pitesti, in Romania, between 4 and 7 June 2019, as a high-level research policy conference on the outcomes and perspectives of the Nuclear Research and Training Activities.
The FISRAD project will dedicate efforts and resources towards the following main objectives:
- to develop, in collaboration with European Commission, scientific experts and conference expert sub-contractors services (e.g. ENS), a programme covering all outstanding results of the European research achieved under the H2020 Euratom with the participation of the most renowned specialists and speakers;
- to make the European nuclear community at large aware of the conference and attract a broad audience to the conference, using modern and efficient means, tools and services in communication; and
- to ensure the smooth organization of the Conference in Romania, providing innovative solutions to create an optimum environment for a fruitful exchange of information, networking and a broad dissemination of the nuclear fission research achievements in Europe, based on the experience of RATEN in organization of scientific international events.
