The INSIDER case studies validated

At the beginning of the INSIDER project, three major uses cases had been identified for benchmarking the technologies and some partners offered facilities: case 1: decommissioning of a back/end of fuel cycle and/or research facility case 2: decommissioning of a nuclear reactorc case 3: post-accident remediation of a site The different options had been compared in terms of significance, feasibility,
