Actinides have many applications in various scientific and technological fields, underpinning research is carried out at JRC-ITU in collaboration with a number of academic partners worldwide.
A JRC invention initially stemming from its research in the nuclear sector will soon be used by hospitals for minimally-invasive robotic surgery.
A novel, accelerator-driven method could produce nuclides for targeted alpha therapy of cancer in practically unlimited amounts, overcoming current obstacles for its wider use due to a limited production of alpha-emitters.
Authors from JRC-ITU and four other organizations have generated a Guide on Planning Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D) towards Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste. The guide aims to support the development of facilities within lesser advanced nuclear programmes.
From the 27th June as part of the 300th Birthday of the City of Karlsruhe, EFFEKTE 2015 transforms the palace (schloss) gardens of Karlsruhe into a huge science experience where visitors can enjoy live experiments, demonstrations, science shows and a varied stage program. Taking part in the festival will be a variety of scientific institutions, municipal buildings, cultural institutions and retail stores hosting various events on the subject of science and research.
