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

Second set of INSIDER in-situ measurements

In the frame of the INSIDER project, an experimental benchmark is planned to test the characterisation methodologies developed in the project on some real cases of ongoing decommissioning projects. After having performed the first exercise on the biological shield of a nuclear reactor, the second one has started in October 2019. This new exercise deals with the characterisation of two
