It will be the opportunity to discuss and exchange between NERIS members, international organisations and European Research communities on research developments and priorities for the European NERIS Platform.

We are pleased to announce that the NERIS Workshop 2019 will be dedicated to “Key challenges in the preparedness, response and recovery phase of a nuclear or radiological emergency” and will address the following challenges:

  • Radiological impact assessment during all phases of nuclear and radiological events
  • Countermeasures and countermeasure strategies in emergency & recovery, decision support & disaster informatics
  • Setting-up a trans-disciplinary and inclusive framework for preparedness for emergency response and recovery

 In addition, a specific session will be held on:

  • Challenges in estimating the source term and operational radiological picture (on-site versus off-site)

You are encouraged to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentation  on emergency and recovery preparedness and response topics mentioned above by 11 January 2019. To send an abstract, please fill in the abstract template and send it to the NERIS secretariat (This email address is being protected from spambots.

NERIS Workshop - Lisbon 2017

On 17-19 May 2017 in Lisbon, NERIS organised its 3rd workshop in cooperation with the Institut Superior Tecnico and the Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente. The Workshop gathered 75 participants and 40 papers dedicated to the 3 challenges of the updated NERIS Strategic Research Agenda were presented:

  • Challenges in countermeasures and countermeasure strategies in emergency & recovery, decision support & disaster informatics;
  • Challenges in radiological impact assessments during all phases of nuclear/radiological events;
  • Challenges in setting-up a holistic framework for preparedness for emergency response & recovery.

The Workshop was an opportunity to discuss and exchange with NERIS Members, International organisations and European Research communities on priorities for the NERIS Platform as well as Japanese colleagues. It was an event rich in discussion and debate on the current results of the research and identification for further development on emergency and recovery issues. A session dedicated to the presentation of the updated version of the NERIS SRA was also proposed at the end of the workshop, in order to allow NERIS members to have their say and propose their comments and modifications.
