Second on-site benchmarking exercises completed

The INSIDER project is developing a validation method of the radiological characterisation for the nuclear installations under decommissioning and dismantling (D&D) process. The in-situ benchmarking exercises are a fundamental part of this objective, and the first round was completed in 2018. Within the frame of INSIDER and in the autumn 2019, the second on-site benchmarking exercise was carried out at the JRC
