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.

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 (email@example.com) or Per Roos (firstname.lastname@example.org) at DTU if you need further information.

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.
Delegate registration opens on 15th October 2019.
