SOTERIA Mid-term Workshop 9-10 & 12 April 2018, Prague

SOTERIA will hold a workshop as a side event of the NUGENIA Annual Forum & Nuclear Days 2018. The objective of the workshop is to disseminate the project preliminary results and work progress amon the nuclear research and industrial communities, as well as to identify future research needs. The workshop will serve as a forum for regulators, user groups, experts and industry, to exchange information and know-how on the issue of radiation effects on nuclear power plant components. For further information and to register for the workshop please refer to this link.

On 7-8th November 2017, SOTERIA held its yearly General Assembly meeting.

The SOTERIA End-User Group had its Kick-off meeting on Wednesday 6 April 2016, at the occasion of the NUGENIA Forum 2016, held on 5-7 April 2016 in Marseille, France.

PLIM - International Conference on Nuclear Power Plant Life Management

Location: Lyon, France

A PLiM programme is an effective tool that allows an operator to safely and cost-effectively manage ageing effects in SSCs for LTO. Such a programme helps facilitate decisions concerning when and how to repair, replace or modify SSCs in an economically optimized way, while assuring that a high level of safety is maintained.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) organized earlier International Conferences on Nuclear Power Plant Life Management from 4 to 8 November 2002 in Budapest, Hungary, from 15 to 18 October 2007 in Shanghai, China, and from 14 to 18 May 2012 in Salt Lake City, United States of America. The participants of these earlier conferences appreciated greatly the opportunity they offered for information exchange in this field and recommended that the IAEA continue to organize future conferences regularly every four to five years. Accordingly, the IAEA is organizing the fourth conference in the series from 23 to 27 October 2017 in Lyon, France.
