10th anniversary of JRC On-Site Laboratories

 

The 10th anniversary of the JRC On-Site Laboratories will be celebrated on 15 June at the Schloss Karlsruhe, and a programme for the media is organised on the day before at the JRC Institute for Transuranium Elements (ITU). This event will give the possibility to inform the public about the safety and reliability of the nuclear fuel cycle and the latest developments in the field of nuclear safeguards. Experts from the ITU and the Commission's Energy Directorate-General will show examples of this important work, to demonstrate how, for example, environmental sampling techniques work in practice and how inspectors are trained.
