INSIDER project officially kicks off

Launched on 8 June 2017, INSIDER is a new Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission. It represents a major challenge in optimising radioactive waste identification during nuclear decommissioning and dismantling operations (D&D), in particular concerning nuclear power plants, post-accidental sites or nuclear facilities. Today, about 60% of the decommissioning expenditure is attributable to waste management, even though only 3% of
