UPDATE: 1st Workshop on the Radiological and Nuclear Training Framework in the European Union

AGENDA (full version including speakers) update 20 January 2020.

 

 

We invite you to participate at the 1st Workshop on the Radiological and Nuclear Training Framework in the ENEA Frascati Research Center (Rome), 27th January 2020.

 

Background

Radiation and Nuclear (RN) emergencies are by far the most feared by people and difficult to face by the authorities also because new scenarios add to conventional ones to further widen the range of intervention of First Responders.

In this context training and exercise is probably the most important element that can make the difference between life and death, loss and preservation, incident and tragedy. Nevertheless, RN t raining for First Responders still differs between EU countries and this hamper the sharing of expertise and affect countries’ capabilities to manage RN crisis in cooperation with or in support to others countries.

 

Where we are

There is an increasing effort aiming at standardization at EU level of the training activities for First Responders involved in CBRN crisis management.

These actions respond to specific directives contained in the European Commission’s 2009 CBRN Action Plan and re-iterated in the European Commission’s new CBNR-E Agenda issued on 2014.

In this regard, it is a matter of fact that the RN sector comes with specific features that deserve a focus mainly related to new technologies and methodologies in training and in the development of curricula focused on unconventional scenarios .

 

The Workshop

The H2020 INCLUDING project organizes the 1st Workshop on the Radiological and Nuclear Training Framework in the European Union. The main objectives of this one-day workshop are:

- To deliver an overview of the current status of the standardization of RN training at EU level;
- To clarify the role of innovative methodologies and technologies in RN training;
- To assess the relevance of unconventional scenarios in RN training;
- To collect recommendations, suggestions and lessons learnt from participants.

The program will include invited keynote talks, presentations on the latest developments and round tables with discussions.
