On Friday 11 March 2011 the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan occurred near the East coast of the Japanese main island Honshū. The earthquake and especially the following tsunami devastated big areas in Eastern Japan and caused enormous destruction and claimed the lives of approx. 20.000 people. The subsequent Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident is a human and technical tragedy, which worsened the situation of many inhabitants – about 150.000 people had to be evacuated and were pulled out of their homes, some of them cannot return even today.

The members of ETSON informed the public during the accident and monitored the events and its aftermaths. Within the respective activities the support of the national regulators with the newly developed stress tests should be emphasised. Other contributions include e. g. the participation in national and international research and development projects.

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident, several members of ETSON published a variety of texts which deal with different topics related to the event and its implications. A compilation of texts you can find in the list below.
