Considerations about offshore release of Fukushima Daiichi treated cooling water, 20 October 20212021-10-05T13:48:44+00:00

Webinar organised by SHARE, NERIS & ALLIANCE

Wednesday 20th October, 10:00-12:00 (CET)

REGISTER at: https://nmbu.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_rK5R2MmgRCiiwfepeoB9FA

A decade since the nuclear accident at the Fukushima Daiichi NPP, Fukushima is still setting a precedent for emergency and recovery management. In April 2021, the Japanese government announced its approval of the offshore release of water used to cool the damaged Fukushima Daiichi NPP reactors that has been accumulating in onsite storage tanks.

The planned water release is raising many pressing questions regarding technical issues, radiological effects on the environment, international agreements, ethical considerations, and consequences for post-accident management.

Taking up on these questions, this webinar gathers experts from different fields including citizen scientists, radioecologists, ethicists, emergency managers, national authorities, and international organisations.


Confirmed speakers:

  • Ms. Yuki Tanabe, Nuclear Accident Response Office, Japan
  • Dr. Thierry Schneider, ICRP, CEPN, France
  • Prof. Jordi Vives i Batlle, SCK CEN, Belgium
  • Mr. Azby Brown, SAFECAST, Japan
  • Prof. Deborah Oughton, CERAD/NMBU, Norway
  • IAEA representative


The webinar will be moderated by Joke Kenens, PhD candidate and SHARE member.

After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident: dealing with the unpredictable, 24 November 20212021-07-19T06:55:46+00:00

10 years after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, IRSN invites the participants of this workshop to discuss the results of different research projects in the domain of Social Sciences and Humanities. These projects aimed at understanding and drawing lessons from this major accident. They were conducted by IRSN in the framework of the AGORAS Project cofounded by the French Nuclear safety and radiation protection research program​.

These research projects highlight the question of developing the nuclear safety organisations capability to tackle the unpredictable during the crisis management and at the time of the design of the plants

Morning: crisis management
  •  Involvement in a hostile environment: lessons learnt from the Fukushima Daiichi accident – Olivier Isnard, Elsa Gisquet
  • ​Tackling the unpredictable through crisis exercises – Elsa Gisquet, Patricia Dupuy, Said Khemlie
Afternoon: accident prevention
  • ​After Fukushima, restoring confidence in the robustness of French nuclear plant – Mathias Roger, Olivier Loiseau 
    Preventing the accident in the daily operation of plant – Nicolas Dechy, Hervé Bodineau
