16-20 February 2015 Vienna, Austria
Organized in Cooperation with the: Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD/NEA)
In Connection with the implementation of the: IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety
When the Fukushima Daiichi accident occurred, there was an extension R&D database for water cooled reactor (WCR) severe accidents, and the information was very useful for predicting and understanding the accident progression. In the light of Fukushima Daiichi accident, new R&D activities have been undertaken by IAEA Member States, as well as by Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD/NEA) and other international organization, dealing with severe accident at NPPs, including those affecting spent fuel pools. This international Expert Meeting (IEM) is being organized to facilitate the exchange of information on these R&D activities and to further strengthen international collaboration among Member States and international organizations.
The objective of this IEM is to provide a forum for experts from Member States and international organizations to exchange information and experience related to R&D work undertaken in the light of the Fukushima Daiichi accident.
