The two year Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering, SARENA (SAfe and REliable Nuclear Applications), aims to develop scientific, technical and management skills enabling engineers to work in all domains related to nuclear energy and applications. A strong international culture will be added based on the students from all around the world joining the program.

SARENA, now approved and scheduled to start in the second half of 2019, will offer integrated and balanced program, fully taught in English. A wide range of nuclear applications including nuclear power plant (NPP) design and

The Federal Law No. 118-FZ dated of May 23, 2018 “On amendments to the Article 26 of the Federal Law “On the Use of Atomic Energy” and recognition of the individual provisions of the Russian Federation legislative acts to become ineffective” came into force in Russia.

According to the Law, calculation models used for safety analysis should be built with computer programs which have undergone the review procedure established by the Regulatory Authority. Review procedure is to be carried out by technical support organization of the Regulatory Authority.

The present situation of nuclear energy in Europe asks for a continuing effort in the field of Education and Training (E&T) aimed to assure qualified workforce in the next decades.

ANNETTE aims at enhancing the Europe-wide efforts initiated in the past decades by different organizations belonging to academia, research centers and industry to maintain and develop education and training in the different nuclear areas. The main aim of this action is to consolidate and better exploit the achievements already reached in the past and to tackle the present challenges in preparing the

About

„EUROSAFE“ is a global and European initiative aimed at promoting the convergence of technical nuclear safety practices in Europe. It is formed and managed by the EUROSAFE partners Bel V (Belgium), CSN (Spain), CV REZ (Czech Republic), MTA EK (Hungary), GRS (Germany), ANVS (The Netherlands), ENEA (Italy), INRNE BAS (Bulgaria), IRSN (France), NRA (Japan), JSI (Slovenia), LEI (Lithuania), PSI (Switzerland), RATEN ICN (Romania), SSM (Sweden), SEC NRS (Russia), SSTC NRS (Ukraine), VTT (Finland), VUJE (Slovakia), Wood (United Kingdom), a group of technical safety organisations (TSOs) and European regulatory bodies with nuclear safety expertise and competent in nuclear safety assessments, that create the EUROSAFE Association and the Programme Committee. Besides the authorities CSN, ANVS and SSM, all organisations are also members of ETSON, the European Technical Safety Organisations Network.

With a view to promoting the formation of a European scientific and technical network in the field of nuclear safety, the EUROSAFE Association has the following objectives:

  • to form a suitable forum for exchanges on analyses and R&D in the field of nuclear safety,to share experiences, and to exchange technical and scientific opinions,
  • to contribute to fostering the convergence of technical nuclear safety practices in Europe,
  • to further the definition and the implementation of nuclear safety research programmes.

The partners are aware that a high level of nuclear safety and radiation protection is a priority for the countries of Europe; they

  • recognise the reinforcement of the European dimension in the technical, economical and societal challenges which nuclear safety has to face,
  • take note that nuclear safety expertise plays a major role in contributing to the attainment and maintenance of a high level of nuclear safety and radiation protection,
  • acknowledge that the organisations competent in nuclear safety expertise develop appropriate approaches to safety issues as part of their assessments and research activities,
  • recognise the need for increased co-operation and reinforced sharing of experience between organisations competent in nuclear safety expertise.

The EUROSAFE Forums

Anchor Title: 
Forums

The EUROSAFE Forum is an international conference on nuclear safety and security, radioactive waste management and radiological protection. Since 1999, this event brings together representatives of organisations specialised in nuclear and radiological safety techniques, research institutes, power utilities, industry, public authorities and non-governmental organisations to inform about and discuss current developments and achievements in these topics.

Nuclear energy contributes approximately one third of European electricity production. A high level of nuclear safety is a priority for the countries of Europe. The technical safety organisations play an important role in contributing to that objective through appropriate approaches to major safety issues as part of their assessments and research activities.

The challenges to nuclear safety are increasingly international. Changes in underlying technologies such as instrumentation and control, the impact of electricity market deregulation, demands for improved safety, the ageing of nuclear facilities, waste management, maintaining and improving scientific and technical knowledge and the need for greater transparency - these are all issues where the value of an international approach is gaining increasing recognition.

The development of the European Union including its 2004 enlargement will also require closer collaboration between technical safety organisations and even more convergence in European nuclear safety practices. EUROSAFE aims to respond to these needs by offering a European forum for information on and discussion of important nuclear safety issues.

The EUROSAFE Tribune

Anchor Title: 
Tribune

From 2001 until 2016, GRS and IRSN published the magazine "EUROSAFE Tribune". Twice a year, this publication provided readers with articles about key issues in the world of nuclear safety and radiological protection, focusing alternately on the respective EUROSAFE Forum´s main subject and special topics.
