The role of TSOs in the context of increasing demand for safety expertise

Paris, 3 & 4 November 2008

The EUROSAFE Forum 2008 focused on “The role of TSOs in the context of increasing demand for safety expertise” from the point of view of the authorities, TSOs and industry and presented the latest work in nuclear installation safety and research, radiation safety as well as nuclear material and nuclear facilities security carried out by the founding members of European Technical Safety Organisations Network (GRS, IRSN, AVN) and their partners worldwide.
