Scope of the Seminar

The 58th ESReDA seminar will be a forum that aims to discuss theories, concepts, and experiences of enhancing the use of knowledge for better risk management and governance. This seminar will bring together researchers, practitioners, specialists and decision-makers to discuss strategies and practical experiences.

Papers for contributions to the seminar are invited;see Call for Papers

The Radionuclide Metrology laboratories (RADMET) are equipped with a broad set of instruments used for nuclear decay measurements, determination of related nuclear data and radiological characterisation of samples and materials. The set-ups, many of them unique in their kind, are used to perform high accuracy measurements of a large number of radionuclides in diverse samples ranging from reference materials for environmental monitoring to solutions for primary standardisation of activity. RADMET is among the few laboratories world-wide to provide reference data to the international reference system (SIR) on the 100 most relevant radionuclides. In connection to the measurements the lab is well equipped for preparing sources dedicated for the specific measurements.

MONNET is a high-intensity quasi mono-energetic fast neutron source, driven by a vertical 3.5 MV Tandem accelerator producing either continuous or pulsed beams of protons, deuterons or helium ions. Quasi mono-energetic neutrons are generated in the energy region 0 - 24 MeV by using lithium, deuterium or tritium targets. MONNET may also be used as a photon source or for studies requiring proton, deuteron or alpha beams without the emphasis on neutron production, provided that there is added value for the JRC to do so.

JRC operates a laboratory for ultralow-level radioactivity measurements inside the 225 m deep underground laboratory HADES, which is located at the premises of the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre. In HADES, the muon flux (secondary cosmic rays) is a factor of 5000 lower compared to above ground and the flux of protons, neutrons and electrons is reduced to an insignificant level. This reduction of the cosmic ray flux makes the background in gamma-ray spectrometry measurements significantly lower compared to above ground. Therefore it is possible to detect very low amounts of radioactivity (sub mBq range). Eleven specially designed high purity germanium detectors are used for the measurements. There is also a scanning station by which the homogeneity of deadlayers in HPGe-detectors can be studied.

GELINA is a 150 MeV electron accelerator serving as strong white neutron source for high resolution neutron time-of-flight measurements. The facility covers the energy range from thermal to 15 MeV, has unsurpassed time resolution of less than 2 ns (FWHM) and serves an array of flight paths up to 400 m long on which as many as 10 experiments can be carried out simultaneously. GELINA also allows use of the high radiation field in the target hall.

The decommissioning of a nuclear installation is the final step in its lifecycle. It involves all activities from shutdown and removal of nuclear material to the environmental restoration of the site.

By 2025, it is estimated that over one third of the EU's currently operational reactors will have reached the end of their lifecycle and will be shut down.

Understanding our Political Nature: a new report looking at the factors influencing political decision-making.

The JRC wants to improve the understanding of the values held by European citizens and political parties.

How do they influence political decision-making in elections, policymaking and legislation?

The JRC seeks to work with experts from across the globe to provide a state-of-the-science report on the Science of values and identity in the political process.

This study should lead to the development of a practical analytical framework for policymakers to support their political choices by:
