ABOUT THE 2021 EDITION

The Fukushima Daiichi accident, Covid-19 and threats from climate change highlight unexpected risks. The EUROSAFE 2021 Forum will address the role of TSOs facing these new challenges and rising expectations from society.
These themes will be discussed by nuclear safety experts and society stakeholders to help prepare for future events.  Younger generations will play a key part and will present their projects in a science slam.
The forum will consist of technical seminars and panel discussions. A TSO Café will allow informal exchanges over coffee.

About the conference

EUROSAFE is ETSON´s annual international conference on nuclear safety and security, radioactive waste management and radiological protection. Since 1999, this event brings together representatives of technical safety organisations, research institutes, public authorities, power utilities, the nuclear industry and non-governmental organisations from all over Europe and beyond to inform about and discuss current developments in research and technology. Originally founded by the former EUROSAFE Initiative, the EUROSAFE conferences are hosted alternately by BelV, GRS and IRSN on behalf of ETSON.

The EUROSAFE conference offers a broad variety of relevant content in various formats. The conference´s plenary part is devoted to lectures by high-profile representatives of different stakeholders in nuclear safety. It is also the setting of the science slam in which young experts from ETSON member organisations compete for the ETSON Award which is organised by ETSON´s Junior Staff Programme. The latest technical-scientific activities and findings of ETSON members are presented and discussed in several seminars. The TSO Café provides for an excellent opportunity to meet experts from ETSON member organisations and other stakeholders.
