Centre for Energy Research (EK) in Budapest, Hungary was designated as the first Collaborating Centre in Nuclear Forensics of the IAEA in 2016 which was prolonged this year till 2025. The Centre provides laboratory, research and training capacity, expertise, and mentoring opportunities together with scientific collaborations in the field of nuclear security.

Accurate prediction of the convective single- and two-phase heat transfer is very important in process and power engineering for safety, reliability, and efficiency. In this aspect, boiling is particularly interesting and complex phenomena, which may significantly enhance the heat transfer from the heated surface to the coolant flow. The detailed understanding of these phenomena is of great importance and, as such, is put under investigation in the THELMA laboratory (Thermal-Hydraulics Experimental Laboratory for Multiphase Applications) at the Reactor Engineering Division at Jožef Stefan Institute (Slovenia).

On April 26th the Chernobyl disaster was 35 years ago. How is the situation on the site today? Which works are currently going on? And how is taken care of the radioactive waste?

17 May 2021 | JSI

As one of the tasks in Work Package 4 of the ENEEP project, a search for novel experimental education activities was performed, which resulted in a shortlist of new experiments for possible future implementation and integration in the activities offered by ENEEP. One of the identified new experiments – a Cherenkov radiation-based power meter – was successfully set up at the JSI TRIGA reactor.

IRSN is involved in PERFROI, an international project to complete the safety knowledge in case of a loss of coolant accident.

17 May 2021 | GRS

In the course of the new Radiation Protection Act (2017) the Federal Radiological Emergency Centre was established. GRS has by law been assigned the task of supporting the Federal Radiological Emergency Centre in its work together with different Federal Offices. In our interview, GRS expert Dr Albert Kreuser explains how the emergency organisation at GRS works and how his colleagues prepare for a possible mission.
