Nordic perspectives of Fukushima: Where are we now and where do we go?
Joint NKS-R and NKS-B Seminar, Stockholm, 12-13 January 2016 (2nd announcement)
NKS proudly announces a new joint NKS-R and NKS-B seminar, which will outline the current state of development in Nordic nuclear risk assessment and preparedness and examine implications and needs for the future. The seminar will follow up on the progress since the NKS Fukushima seminar in 2013, and feature the newest results of Nordic research and development. The Nordic status will also be put into international context. A seminar programme is being formed with selected speakers that will guarantee a fruitful discussion. International speakers include Ted Lazo (OECD/NEA), Chris Clement (ICRP) and Gustavo Caruso (IAEA, addressing the forthcoming comprehensive IAEA report on the Fukushima accident).
More detailed information, including possibilities for registration, will follow in the next announcement in September.
