Following the already established trend of digital transformation of global world economy, nuclear industry is moving towards post-industrial development. The distinctive feature of the atomic industry transformation is the comprehensive implementation of information processes into all spheres of activity in the field of atomic energy use.

In Russia, a Digital strategy of nuclear sector development designed by the State Atomic Energy Corporation “ROSATOM” is currently being implemented. This strategy established, among other things, broad implementation of modern computer programmes

Deep disposal facilities for liquid radioactive waste (DDF LRW) have been operating over 50 years in the Russian Federation. The disposal of liquid radioactive waste (LRW) is carried out by controlled well injection of LWR into deep horizons, isolated from the surface by low permeable rocks and shallow aquifers.

In 2013, the IAEA Mission «International peer review on the deep well injection practice for the liquid radioactive waste in the Russian Federation» was carried out in the Russian Federation. The IAEA Mission resulted in a report containing recommendations for improving the

Reliability of simulation models for nuclear installations, which are realized applying computer codes, has a vital importance for the safe use of nuclear energy. In the process of development of software that allows forecasting to the last detail of nuclear installations behavior in various operation conditions, as well as in case of an accident, the results of the advanced scientific researches are used. The most remarkable mathematicians, physicists, experimentators and software programmers take part in software development, and all components of the nuclear industry innovative

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.
