NERIS - European Platform on preparedness for nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery
The mission of the NERIS Platform is to establish a forum for dialogue and methodological development between all European organisations and associations taking part in decision making of protective actions in nuclear and radiological emergencies and recovery in Europe.
Objectives of the Platform NERIS
- Improving the effectiveness of current European, national and local approaches for preparedness concerning nuclear or radiological emergency response and recovery.
- Promoting more coherent approaches in preparedness for nuclear or radiological emergency response and recovery throughout Europe.
- Identifying gaps and needs for further developments in preparedness for nuclear or radiological emergency response and recovery.
- Addressing new and emerging challenges in the field of preparedness for nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery.
- Maintaining and improving know-how and technical expertise in preparedness for nuclear or radiological emergency response and recovery among all interested stakeholders in Europe.
Establish a forum for dialogue between
- European, national, regional and local authorities,
- technical support organisations (TSOs),
- nuclear plant operators,
- professional organisations,
- research institutes,
- non-governmental organisations (NGOs),
- national and local stakeholders.
- Initiate and support through partnership working European, national, regional and local activities and projects in preparedness for nuclear or radiological emergency response and recovery.
Initiate and coordinate networking activities
- to share experience,
- to contribute to a better harmonisation in Europe,
- to promote maintenance, development and adaptation of existing tools and methods for nuclear or radiological emergency response and recovery.
Ensure a supranational training programme by
- stimulating continuation of the training courses developed during the EURATOM 6th Framework Programme,
- launching of new training courses and workshops/exercises according to the needs of all the various actors.
The Platform has been established in 2009/2010 as a follow-up activity of the European research project EURANOS.
The Platform is managed by a Board of 10 members. The presidency is hold by Centre d’étude sur l’Evaluation de la Protection dans le domaine Nucléaire (CEPN), the Vice-President is from Federal office for radiation protection (BfS).
Until July 2016, 54 organisations have signed the Letter of Intent to join the Platform and constitute the Partners. Membership of the Platform is open to all European organisations concerned with nuclear and radiological emergency response and recovery preparedness having expressed interest in the activities of the Platform and having signed the present Terms of Reference.
