ENHANCED HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES

As the safety of our guests is our top priority, a layered approach to health measures will be implemented throughout the “Beffroi de Montrouge”, including required wearing of protective face masks and enhanced cleaning measures.

As the situation is constantly evolving and varies depending on your country of origin, we invite you to consult the European Union website to have the latest information on the conditions to enter France.

According to information available from the French government, as of the issue date of this page, a Health Pass must be presented in paper or digital format which includes a QR Code - including the EU digital COVID-19 certificate, or equivalent for non-European Union countries, which fulfills one of the following criteria:

  • That a guest is fully vaccinated (with an EMA-approved vaccine):
    • 7 days after the second shot for two-shot vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca);
    • Four weeks after the shot for one-shot vaccines (Johnson & Johnson);
    • 7 days after the shot for vaccines administered to people who have already had COVID-19 (only one dose is necessary).
  • OR that a guest has been tested (PCR or Antigen) and has a negative result within the last 72 hours;
  • OR for persons who have had COVID-19: the result of a positive RT-PCR or Antigen test, attesting that the individual has been infected, and that a period of time of at least 11 days and less than 6 months has passed since the test result was obtained (considered as a recovery certificate).

Here is a list of pharmacies close to the site of the event that do antigenic tests.

For more information on the Health Pass, including the latest updates, we invite you to visit the French government website.

Guests are being asked to carry with them valid proof of identity should there be spot checks by the police to verify the name on their Health Pass.

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.
