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 (4th announcement)
NKS proudly announces the joint NKS-R and NKS-B seminar at Vattenfall AB Headquarters (http://corporate.vattenfall.com/about-vattenfall/contact-us/our-office-locations) in Stockholm, which is scheduled to start at noon on the 12th of January and end in the late afternoon on the 13th of January 2016.
A draft seminar programme is now available here:
comprising invited international presentations as well as a wide range of presentations from handpicked Nordic experts outlining the current state of development in Nordic nuclear risk assessment and preparedness, and examining and discussing 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. In the longer perspective, ideas and thoughts for future work and follow up from the industry, the authorities, expert communities and NKS should be the outcome of the seminar, in particular focusing on issues where nuclear safety and emergency preparedness work can go hand in hand.
