Words from the coordinators
 
Dear Reader,

Thank you for your continued strong interest in the TRANSAT project! The year 2020 that is coming to an end has been difficult but also full of successes and achievements. Difficult because we had to overcome the challenges induced by the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, delays in the project concerned a few experimental activities and are due to the impact of laboratories lockdown. Nevertheless, the majority of actions will be completed before the end of the project and deliverables submitted. Additionally, we expect some delays that will postpone the end of the project to early 2022. We foresee 2021 as a year full of successes because the first experimental results will be available, and you will find a few examples in this newsletter.
We also had a very good evaluation of the evolution of TRANSAT during a meeting with two independent European experts, Dr Pamela and Pr Berkovskyy, accompanied by Mr Iorizzo and Mr Ibbot from the European Commission. This success is only due to the very strong involvement of TRANSAT partners and we would like to thank you again for this!
Our annual meeting also went very well with high-level presentations which were, again, very much appreciated by the members of our Scientific Advisory Committee, who are more and more involved in the follow-up of TRANSAT. All the contributors of TRANSAT are very grateful to them.
Finally, we are actively preparing our second Tritium School under the responsibility of Sabina Markelj (JSI). We are convinced that this School is needed and will be a great success, even if it is organised virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We also hope that we will be able to attract more and more young researchers who will wish to join us one day for future exciting scientific adventures.

We hope you will enjoy this first newsletter and will not hesitate to get in touch with us through our website, LinkedIn page or ResearchGate.

Mussels to research on tritiated steel particles
 
TRANSAT partners determined potential impact of tritiated steel particles using mytilus galloprovincialis as bioindicators. Their research will help monitoring and assessing the risks of tritiated micron and sub-micron particles on human and environmental health.

Ion beam analysis for tritium detection
 
In the framework TRANSAT, nuclear reaction measurements on tritiated samples were performed using 3He beam to develop new possible ion beam method to detect tritium. Tritiated sample fabrication and total activity measurements were performed by Mickaël Payet (Saclay, CEA).
