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.
Learning from others using operational experience to improve the safety of nuclear power plants has been the mission of a group of experts from the JRC and member states in the last 10 years. The European Union has set up in 2008 a regional network to improve the collection and implementation of operational experience.
The School on the Physics and Chemistry of the Actinides will be organised as a tutorial session to the JdA conference.
The aim of this workshop is to present the technical/scientific results of what has been achieved in 20 years' time and the experience in operating it, and to exchange information on new or existing monitoring techniques.
This school is intended to provide an overview to the measurement and analysis techniques associated with neutron induced reactions alongside the nuclear theory governing these reactions.
The biennial ICRM conference gathers both leading experts and beginners and is providing an opportunity for exchange of information on the development of techniques and new applications of radionuclide metrology, and to encourage international cooperation in this field.
The 2nd International Workshop on the European Atlas of Natural Radiation (IWEANR 2017) will be held in the town of Verbania, Italy, from Monday 6 November at 14:00 to Thursday 9 November at 16:00. The main aim of the workshop is to present the status and discuss progress of the European Atlas of Natural Radiation.
The "45èmes Journées des Actinides" brings together experts from all fields related to actinides, young scientists and students, stimulates the presentation and dissemination of new results as well as discussions and collaborations.
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.
The workshop is focused on the exchange of experiences and best practices on common dual-use export control technical issues with the aim to contribute to the reinforcement of the harmonisation and common understanding in controlling the diffusion of sensitive technology.
