Decision analysis of clean-up actions in inhabited areas in Belgium after an accidental release of radionuclides

Within the EURATOM 5th Framework Program in the key action area of Nuclear Fission and Radiation Protection, the EVATECH project - coordinated by the Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection Institute (STUK) in Finland, aims at the development of methods for stakeholder involvement in exercises and emergency planning which will enhance public confidence and understanding in relation to nuclear emergency management:
�{�improving planning and communication methods, especially for early phase of an accident;
�{�to enhance negotiation methods for later phase of an accident;
�{�to gain experience on countermeasure evaluation systems developed in the project.

Furthermore, EVATECH is seeking to understand the nuclear emergency management process across Europe and the information and decision support needs of the decision makers therein.

In the framework of the EVATECH project, the partners (B, SK, PL, DK and D) were to organize a decision workshop on recovery in an inhabited area following a nuclear accident. The idea of this workshop is to understand the needs of decision makers a few days after a radioactive release from a nuclear accident when considering the choice and implementation of early recovery actions in inhabited areas.

The intention is to gain a broad overview of the issues and perceptions that will drive decision making on restoration in urban areas and it will not be necessary to get into any great detail.
