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)

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.

CONFIDENCE Dissemination workshop 2-5 December 2019, Bratislava, Slovak Republic - Save the date

The CONFIDENCE Project, funded under the H2020 CONCERT project, is performing research focused on uncertainties in the area of emergency management and long-term rehabilitation. It concentrates on the early and transition phases of an emergency, but considers also longer-term decisions made during these phases. The project brings together expertise from four European Radiation Protection Research Platforms (NERIS, MELODI, ALLIANCE and EURADOS) and also from Social Sciences and Humanities.

Actors in emergency and recovery preparedness and management from all levels and sectors are encouraged to participate in this the CONFIDENCE Dissemination to be held in Bratislava from 2 to 5 December 2019.

The main objectives will be: 

  • To disseminate the knowledge acquired and to demonstrate the capability of the developed models, methods, approaches, guides, recommendations and tools.
  • To collect feedback from end users on our outputs and remaining research requirements or improvements in models/guides etc. as a feedback to the Platforms to further develop their Strategic Research Agendas. 

Information on the agenda, registration and accommodation will be shared in the coming months.

CONFIDENCE Dissemination workshop 2-5 December 2019, Bratislava, Slovak Republic - Second announcement

The CONFIDENCE Project, funded under the H2020 CONCERT project, is performing research focused on uncertainties in the area of emergency management and long-term rehabilitation. It concentrates on the early and transition phases of an emergency, but considers also longer-term decisions made during these phases. The project brings together expertise from four European Radiation Protection Research Platforms (NERIS, MELODI, ALLIANCE and EURADOS) and also from Social Sciences and Humanities.

Objectives of the workshop:
• to disseminate the knowledge acquired and to demonstrate the capability of the developed models, methods, approaches, guides, recommendations and tools,
• to collect feedback from end users on outputs and remaining research requirements or improvements in models/guides etc. as a feedback to the Platforms to further develop their Strategic Research Agendas and Joint roadmap.

Workshop format:
The workshop will consists of presentations, panels, poster sessions and scenario based facilitated group discussions. Workshop will follow the decision making process which will be realised by using one scenario based on work and outputs from each and every project work-package. Scenario based demonstration of methods and tools will provide complex overview of project outcomes.

The dissemination workshop will take place from December 2 until December 5, 2019 on the premises of Lindner Hotel Gallery Central in Bratislava, Metodova 4, Slovak Republic. (https://www.lindner.de/en/bratislava-hotel-gallery-central/welcome.html) .
The workshop will start with registration and welcome coffee at 8:00 on December 2, 2019 and will conclude on December 5 at 12:30.

While there is no registration fee, dissemination workshop participation is limited to a maximum of 120 participants and registration is required by filling the online registration form. Pre-registered are accepted for final registration. So do not wait to sign up for the CONFIDENCE Dissemination workshop!
