We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The JRC is pleased to host the 5th edition of the Summer School on Operational issues in Radioactive Waste Management and Nuclear Decommissioning from 9 to 13 September in Ispra, Italy. Organised in co-operation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Milan State University (Università degli Studi di Milano) and the International Radiation Protection Association (IRPA) it will bring together international experts in the nuclear field.
Nuclear decommissioning and waste management are important steps in nuclear power plants' life cycle and a crucial factor for public acceptance of nuclear power. This year, the course is organised around several technical sessions and includes visits to JRC laboratories where participants will be able to participate in some measurement exercises. These practical examples and discussions with experts and other delegates offer a unique international learning opportunity.
