The 11th issue of the NERIS Newsletter is now available. This edition is dedicated to the feedback from recent events and the announcements.
The Newsletter includes:
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).
NERIS has signed on October 5, 2015 a collaborative research arrangement with ISPRA in order to identify and develop new approaches in the areas of Nuclear/Radiological Emergency Preparedness Response and Recovery, thus working to the mutual benefit of both organisations in the achievement of their objectives.
A new version of the NERIS Strategic Research Agenda is available. A consultation process is now engaged. In order to prepare a strategic vision of radiation protection research in Europe with other Platforms (MELODI, ALLIANCE, EURADOS), we need to select a list of high priorities and also to rank these priorities.
As member of the NERIS Platform you are invited to consult the document and fill the grid to select research priorities.
The grid contains two columns: the first column allows ranking the priorities of the SRA with three to five priorities and the second column allows selecting the priorities in terms of synergetic issues with the other platforms for the second OPERRA Call.
On 5 December 2013 MELODI, the European Radioecology Alliance (ALLIANCE), NERIS and EURADOS have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to confirm their joint commitment towards the consolidation and implementation of a strategic vision of radiation protection research in Europe. This ceremony took place at the European Commission headquarters in Brussels, in presence of Bruno Schmitz, Head of Unit K4 “Fission” at the Directorate General for Research and Innovation.
