There were two NKS-R seminars/workshops scheduled for 2020.  BREDA/BRUTE seminar was postponed due to COVID-19 and will be organized in September.

 

BREDA/BRUTE: Reactor pressure vessel embrittlement seminar for the BREDA - BRUTE project. Ensuring safe operation and the durability of the reactor pressure vessel is one of the most important tasks for nuclear power plants. In the BRUTE project the radiation embrittlement of the B2 vessel is investigated and compared to the surveillance program. The seminar will present and discuss the latest results from VTT, KTH and Chalmers. The seminar will take place as an online seminar on September 22nd, 2020. Registration can be found here https://www.lyyti.in/BRUTE_seminar_220920. For updated information, please also keep an eye on the NKS upcoming seminars webpage http://www.nks.org/en/seminars/upcoming_seminars/upcoming_seminars.htm, Announcements of update information will also be made through NKS NewsFlashes.
