The NERIS Platform will address the following three activities.
- Establish a forum for dialogue between European, national and local
authorities, Technical Support Organisations (TSOs), professional
organisations, research institutes, universities, non-governmental
organisations (NGOs) and local and professional stakeholders to initiate
and support through partnership European, regional, national and local
activities and projects in nuclear and radiological emergency response
and recovery preparedness.
- Initiate and coordinate networking activities to share experience,
to contribute to a better harmonisation in Europe, to maintain and adapt
existing tools and methods, and to develop new technical and governance
approaches on nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery
- Ensure a supranational training programme by continuing the training
courses developed during the EURANOS project and by launching new training
courses according to the needs of all the various actors.
In this way, the NERIS platform will build the focal point for any further
coordinated activities in this area in Europe. The structure of the platform
is in principle as follows:
Important to note here is the objective to establish a platform that is self
sustainable after the three years of the project.
