Modelling and measurement training course in Roskilde, Denmark

The training course on “Assessment of long-term radiological risks from environmental releases: modelling and measurements”, will take place the days 20 April to 1 May 2020, in Roskilde (Denmark). It is organised by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in cooperation with PDC-ARGOS.  The training course is co-funded by the EJP-CONCERT.

The course is aimed at providing the participants with an understanding of how to assess by measurements and modelling the long-term radiological risks from releases to the environment of radionuclides.  Nuclear power plant accidents will particularly be in focus, but RDD’s will be considered. The course comprises a hands-on introduction to laboratory measurement techniques including state-of-the-art radiochemistry methods for determination of radionuclides that cannot easily be determined.  It also includes a hands-on decision support modelling session using a state-of-the-art computerised decision support system for nuclear and radiological emergency management.

More information on the course content in the Concert course folder DTU 2020

Registration: Deadline on 15th of January 2020.  Limited to 12 participants

The targeted audience is PhD students and young scientists / advisors.  The course will give students 2.5 ECTS points.

There is no registration fee for persons with affiliation to a European organisation. Participants are expected to cover their own travel and subsistence costs (e.g., meals, hotel, visa if needed)

Do not hesitate to contact Kasper G. Andersson (kgan@dtu.dk) or Per Roos (roos@dtu.dk) at DTU if you need further information.

Four new TERRITORIES deliverables, approved in July by the EC, are available in the web!

In July 2019 four new deliverables of TERRITORIES have been approved by the EC:

  • D59. Report about the TLD (TERRITORIES Library Database), the radiological state database of selected sites.
  • D60. Guidance to reduce sampling uncertainty.
  • D61. Guidance to select the desirable fit-for-purpose level of complexity for models as applied in risk assessment.
  • D70. Framework for socio-economic analysis.

The approved version of these deliverables is now available in TERRITORIES webpage https://territories.eu/publications

 

ICRM Low-Level-Radioactivity Measurement Techniques conference 2020

The Low-Level Radioactivity Measurement Techniques (LLRMT) 2020 Conference is a five-day topical meeting of the International Committee for Radionuclide Metrology (ICRM). INFN-LNGS is pleased to host the conference at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, Assergi, 20-24th April 2020.

The conference brings together 130-150 worldwide experts for presentations and discussion covering the techniques, applications and data in the field of low-level radioactivity measurement.

Abstracts, not exceeding 3000 characters (including spaces), should be submitted to the conference organizers before 15 November 2019 via the website http://icrm2020.lngs.infn.it/. Papers will be published in Applied Radiation and Isotopes.
