6-17 March 2017
The training course on “Assessment of long-term radiological risks from environmental releases: modelling and measurements”, 6-17 March 2017, Roskilde, Denmark is organised by the Center for Nuclear Technologies at 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
The targeted audience is PhD students and young scientists / advisors. The course is expected to give students 2.5 ECTS points.
There is no registration fee. Participants are expected to cover their own travel and subsistence costs (e.g., meals, hotel, visa if needed)
20-24 March 2017
This training course focuses on the early to intermediate phases after a nuclear/radiological accident, and addresses the state of the art in nuclear and radiological emergency management including the international recommendations, the lessons learned from the Fukushima accident.
This includes, but is not limited to, principles of intervention; radiological evaluations; decision-support tools; different aspects of planning and organization in off-site emergency response; economic, social and psychological impact. The European and international dimension is addressed through lectures on Community legislation and international data and information exchange.
The course is organized in collaboration with the main European emergency management actors and the European platform NERIS (Preparedness for Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Response and Recovery)
The course is mainly targeted towards technical and radiological advisors, staff responsible for the overall emergency organisation and policy, such as civil protection officers and environmental protection officers, either entering the domain or being interested in refreshing the basics and getting acquainted with latest developments in the field. A basic knowledge of radiation protection is recommended.
This 5-day training course is provided from 09h00 to 17h00, including two coffee breaks and lunch.

19-23 June 2017
The Training Course on “Late Phase Nuclear Accident Preparedness and Management” is organised by the Nuclear Protection Evaluation Center (CEPN - France) and the Institute of Radiology (RIR - Belarus) in cooperation with the European platform NERIS on emergency and post-accident preparedness and response. The training course is co-funded by the European Joint Programme for the integration of radiation protection research CONCERT.
The course will take place from June 19-23, 2017 at the Institute of Radiology (RIR) in Gomel, Belarus.
The main objective of the course for late phase nuclear accident prepardness and management is to provide principles and practical guidance for the key players involved in the preparedness and recovery of living conditions in contaminated areas in the aftermath of a nuclear/radiological accident.
The course offers a comprehensive overview of the various dimensions and challenges of the long-term rehabilitation. It includes also practical elements for the implementation of countermeasures for managing long-term contaminated rural and urban environments, notably through the planning of direct meetings and dialogue with local stakeholders (inhabitants, pupils, local authorities, etc.) living in the areas affected by the Chernobyl accident.
The course is based on international recommendations and on the material produced and developed in several European and international projects: ETHOS, SAGE, FARMING, CORE, EURANOS, NERIS TP, etc. as well as the first results obtained under PREPARE and SHAMISEN programs. The course is made of lectures, practical working sessions, technical visits and discussions. It strongly relies on the practical experience of Belarussian organisations in the management of the Chernobyl consequences as well as on the first lessons from the management of the consequences of the Fukushima accident.
Registration (Deadline on April 15, 2017). Limited to 24 participants.
There is no registration fee, however, participants are expected to cover their own travel and subsistence costs (including meals, hotel room and Visa costs).
