The H2020 INCLUDING Consortium is pleased to announce the ‘Tests and trainings included in response to Radiological and Nuclear threats’ article, prepared by the Crisis Management Specialist involved in the INCLUDING project, has been released in two parts, on 29th of June (part I) and on 26th of August (part II) in the NCTMagazine.
The main scope of the article is to make readers aware of the necessity of the radiological and nuclear (RN) training and establishing a unified and international RN crisis response.
The first part gives an overview on the history of the past radiological and nuclear events within Europe as well as it pays the readers’ attention to the gaps and differences between each EU member policy and capability to respond to RN threats and even in the density of the measuring stations of the radiation level amongst them. The potential of the utility of new technologies such as 3D modelling, unmanned vehicles and virtual reality is also emphasised as a part of the developing new and improving existing solutions in the context of RN threats responding and training.
The second part concerns the idea of INCLUDING Project and the tools which will be implemented to improve planning and realization of RN crisis response trainings on Pan-European level. The main functionality and operability of the INCLUDING platform are presented as well as the wide range of the activates planned to be held. It is mentioned, the most relevant and widespread Joint Actions will be organised considering many possible scenarios: from reactor incident to “dirty bomb” attack and will be carefully planned taking into account many factors influencing them.
If you are interested in the RN threats and responses to them we invite you to read the whole article.
