NERIS-TP: Towards a self sustaining European Technology Platform (NERIS-TP) on Preparedness for Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Response and Recovery
Research project under the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme, EURATOM for Nuclear Research and Training Activities (work programme 2010), Fission-2010-3.3.1, Grand Agreement Number 269718
Nature and scope of the projectThis project aims on the one hand to keep the momentum gained through the European Project EURANOS in establishing a platform where the operational and research community can meet and discuss with all the relevant stakeholders the topics related to emergency response and recovery preparedness and on the other hand to tackle urgent research topics in the area of nuclear emergency response and recovery preparedness. Through a collaboration of industry, research and governmental organisations in Europe, methodological aspects and computational models will be developed to be consistent with recent recommendations from international bodies such as the ICRP (International Commission of Radiation Protection) and improve Europe’s response by coupling decision support systems with an emergency information system such as the European wide information system ECURIE. Within this project, a platform will be established that will be a unique place for combined meeting of the research and the operational community.
ActivitiesThe working program reflects the two objectives of the project
The first bullet point mentioned above is the establishment and operation of the European Platform on Preparedness for Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Response and Recovery. This work will be based on the earlier created European wide NERIS Platform and also include the users groups of the two decision support systems ARGOS and RODOS. At the end of the project, the NERIS platform will be self-sustainable.
The second bullet point represents research activities to close existing gaps in nuclear and radiological emergency management and rehabilitation. This comprises work
