The main objective of FISA 2019 is to enable the scientific community and interested stakeholders to take stock of the progress that has been made and the challenges that have arisen since the last FISA-EURADWASTE Conferences held in Vilnius, Lithuania, in October 2013.
FISA 2019 will feature:
- Specific sessions to present and discuss key results and achievements of all the latest FP7 and H2020 Euratom research and training projects (around 70 overall) supporting safety research of reactor systems. Highlights of the needs, benefits and limitations from ‘H2020 Euratom research and training’ complementing the ‘H2020 EU Research and Innovation’ framework programme will be given. Future perspectives and missions of the proposed ‘EU Horizon Europe’ and ‘Euratom research and Training’ for the period 2021-27 should also be discussed thanks to the participation of high-level representatives throughout the entire conference. Sessions will cover research progress on: safety of existing nuclear installations; severe accidents prevention and mitigation including emergency management; advanced nuclear systems for increased safety and sustainability, numerical simulation and digitalisation, research infrastructures, education & training and mobility of researchers, and cross-cutting actions such as International Cooperation.
- Specific thematic workshops will take place in parallel sessions and will address issues of common interest, e.g. 1) infrastructures and International Cooperation (transnational access, co-funding of infrastructures and partnerships in research and innovation), 2) innovations beyond technology, 3) E&T networking event (ETKM, lifelong learning and borderless mobility), 4) Cross-cutting fission, fusion and non-nuclear energy synergies, challenges and opportunities, and 5) Decommissioning challenges and opportunities.
