ENGAGE Dissemination workshop 11-13 September 2019, Bratislava, Slovak Republic - First announcement

Stakeholder engagement is now recognized as an essential ingredient in the governance of radiological risk. But how is stakeholder engagement achieved? Whom should it include and why? How can it inform radiation protection practices and decision making? This workshop provides an opportunity to discuss these and related questions, with the aim of stimulating more effective and democratic governance of radiological risks. Three fields will be examined in detail: medical exposures to ionizing radiation, post-accident exposures, and exposure to indoor radon.

Workshop Aims:
• To share findings from the ENGAGE project;
• To collect feedback on recommendations for enhanced stakeholder participation in the abovementioned fields

We are pleased to announce that the first announcement is now available for download  : download the first announcement. You will find information on the workshop format, registration and accommodation.

An online registration form will be soon available on the ENGAGE website and shared on the NERIS website.

Registration to the CONFIDENCE Training course 13-15 May 2019, Trnava, Slovak Republic

Use of uncertain information by decision makers at the various levels within the decision making process and its communication.

Guides and recommendations for the decision making in the post release and transition phase taking into account uncertain information will be presented and tested. Attendees will debate how to interpret, use and communicate uncertainties within the decision making process.  The course and practical sessions/workshops will also consider the: establishment and optimisation of remediation strategies; benefits of stakeholder involvement; inclusion of human behaviour, cultural differences and stakeholder preferences as a part of the tools to aid decision making. Training the trainers and facilitators of national, regional and local workshops based on learning from doing and own engagement and experience during the training course is one of the goals of the training.

While there is no registration fee, training course participation is limited to a maximum of 24 participants. Pre-registerers are accepted for final registration. and registration is required by filling the online registration form.

Priority will be given to participants from E.U. countries working in the domain of nuclear or radiological emergency and recovery management.

Important dates:

  • Registration: January 31, 2019
  • Training course: May 13-15, 2019

Modelling and measurement training course, 23 April – 3 May 2019, Roskilde Denmark

Modelling and measurement training course, 23 April – 3 May 2019, Roskilde Denmark

The training course on “Assessment of long-term radiological risks from environmental releases: modelling and measurements”,23 April – 3 May 2019, 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

Registration: Deadline on 15th of January 2019. Limited to 12 participants

The targeted audience is PhD students and young scientists / advisors. The course will 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)

Do not hesitate to contact Kasper G. Andersson (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Per Roos (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) at DTU if you need further information.

TERRITORIES Workshop 19 -20 March 2019, Oxford, UK

Workshop on assessing risks from radioactive legacy sites and how to better present uncertain information.

The objective of the workshop is to discuss the risk assessment process as applied to radioactively contaminated legacy sites and how to better present the assessment findings and associated uncertainties to stakeholders. The workshop will show how the risk assessment process has been applied to a real site in the UK. The workshop discussions and presentations are intended to be of interest to students (final year, MSc, PhD) and those in early career stage in the field of radiological protection and nuclear sciences, particularly radioecology and environmental impact assessment, and therefore their participation is encouraged.
