Word from the Coordinator
Dear Reader,
Thank you for your interest in the INSIDER project! Standing for “Improved Nuclear SIte characterisation for waste minimisation in Decommissioning and Dismantling operations under constrained EnviRonment”, this Euratom Research and Innovation project aims to improve the management of contaminated materials arising from decommissioning and dismantling (D&D) operations by proposing an integrated methodology for radiological characterisation.
This methodology is based on advanced statistical processing and modelling, coupled with adapted and innovative analytical and measurement methods, taking into account sustainability and economic considerations. In order to achieve these objectives, three common case studies will then allow to apply and validate the INSIDER methodology throughout interlaboratory comparisons on matrix representative reference samples and benchmarking. Assessment of the outcomes will be used for providing recommendations and guidelines resulting in pre-standardisation texts.
The first year of the INSIDER project was devoted to different European country’s reports on requirements, practices and needs. In addition, the state of the art in statistical processing, destructive analysis and on-site measurements gave us a clear and complete overview of the current situation. Finally, the selection and validation of the 3 decommissioning sites that will be used for the project’s reference use cases (nuclear fuel cycle facility, nuclear power plant, and post accidental contaminated soils) have paved the way for the future research conducted in INSIDER, namely benchmarking, interlaboratory comparisons and reference material fabrication to implement and qualified the predefined sampling methodology.
I hope that you will enjoy this first newsletter, and will not hesitate to get in touch with us, either through our website, or Twitter and LinkedIn.

INSIDER partners together in Italy
Close by the famous Lake Maggiore, Ispra is the Italian city where the INSIDER partners gathered from 5 to 7 June. After one year, they shared the first project's results and enjoyed a tour of the JRC Ispra site.
Yearly key advances in the project
Discover here the first progresses achieved in the framework of the INSIDER work package 4 - Reference materials and radiochemistry. They are presented by Ben Russell, from NPL (United Kingdom).
