Summary Report from the NKS Board Meeting in Stockholm, January 13-14, 2016

 

Change of Programme Manager for the NKS-B Programme

NKS expressed its sincere thanks to Karin Andgren for all her work, enthusiasm and cooperation as the NKS-R Programme Manager over the last two years and NKS would like to wish Karin good luck and every success in her career in the years ahead.

NKS warmly welcomes Emma Palm from the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) as the new NKS-R Programme Manager. Emma has been employed by SSM since 2013 where she mainly works as an analyst in thermal hydraulics and with the research projects sponsored by SSM. Emma has a PhD in physics from Lund University with a thesis in nuclear structure physics.

For all issues concerning the NKS-R programme please contact Emma at (emma.palm@ssm.se) (Tel. +46 (0) 8 799 40 41).

NKS Seminar – Nordic perspectives of Fukushima: Where are we now and where do we go?

The seminar was held on the 12th and 13th of January, 2016, at Vattenfall in Stockholm, Sweden. The seminar addressed a wide range of nuclear safety and emergency preparedness related topics, covering results of recent NKS activities, as well as analyses and recommendations from other renowned experts.  A total of 26 presentations were given, and the seminar had 100 participants.  The speaker list included prominent international experts like Christopher Clements (ICRP), Ted Lazo (OECD/NEA) and Lyn Bevington (IAEA).  It is hoped that the outcome of the seminar will show the way for new proposals for future NKS work and follow-up on relevant issues in reactor safety and emergency preparedness.
