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 - Training seminar - 16 April 2019, Milan (Italy)

Introduction on approaches to deal with uncertainty information within the decision-making process in nuclear emergency

In emergency management the uncertainty information on the current situation, or its predicted evolution, is an intrinsic problem for decision making. CONFIDENCE aims to improve decision making through the development of approaches to deal with uncertainty information, and to communicate them in such a way that decisions can be made in a more robust manner, reflecting the variability and complexity of the real situation and the decision makers’ preferences. Decision making principles are investigated, ranging from formal decision aiding techniques to simulation based approaches. The training seminar includes an introduction on the NERIS European Platform, on the CONFIDENCE Project and on the approaches based on multi-criteria decision analysis and on the agent based model.
Participants will be involved in the panel discussion on how to deal with uncertainties in decision making and on the benefits of stakeholders involvement in the use of uncertainty information.

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.

ALLIANCE-NERIS Workshop - 28-29 March in Munich

A common ALLIANCE-NERIS Workshop was held in Munich (BfS premises) the last 28th and 29th of March. Named 'Towards improving radiological assessments and management:  Big data sets, spatial distribution and source to sink modelling’, this common workshop considered a joint research priorities arising from the ALLIANCE and NERIS recent gaps analyses. And so, the objective was to establish a consensus on the questions still to be addressed and to recommend future research priorities. The specific objective of the workshop was to address the spatial redistribution of radionuclides, focusing on water- and solid-mediated fluxes of radionuclides from the source to the ocean. The workshop explored how to develop a holistic understanding of key processes to improve radiological impact assessment and management.  The workshop also addressed issues around using  large volumes of possibly heterogeneous data and combining model predictions with monitoring results in an optimized way.

The detailed programme of the workshop is available here.

The different powerpoint presentations can be downloaded archive here (18.01 MB) .

Note that a statement paper is currently on progress and aims to  play a role for inspiring responses to the EURATOM Call as it is described in the Work Programme 2018 - NFRP-8.
