The decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear facilities is a global challenge to be addressed in the years to come. This entails a proper management of contaminated materials, which starts with their reliable and efficient characterisation.
In addition to establishing standardised guidelines, INSIDER expects to have economic, societal and environmental impacts in the short, medium and long term, promoting reversibility and sustainability.
The INSIDER partners will carry out three case studies to validate the results generated in the project: hot cells under decommissioning, shielding systems, and the analysis of contaminated soils after a nuclear accident.
The INSIDER consortium comprises 18 partners from 10 European countries.
