Corrosion is the number one degradation mechanism in the nuclear industry, which can seriously affect plant availability and economics or even challenge the safety.

The summer school is primarily intended for people from nuclear authorities, industry and research organisations who would like to get a comprehensive overview on the field of nuclear corrosion. The programme is designed in a way that networking and a knowledge transfer from experienced experts to the «young generation» is facilitated.

This summer school is co-organized by the Horizon 2020 EC project MEACTOS and by Working Party 4 «Nuclear Corrosion» of the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC event no. 440).

SOTERIA will hold a training school in Valencia, Spain, from 3 to 7 September 2018.

SOTERIA General Assembly 2018

SOTERIA will hold its next general assembly on 9-10 October 2018 in Helsinki, VTT premises.

SOTERIA held a workshop as a side event of the NUGENIA Annual Forum & Nuclear Days 2018. The objective of the workshop was to disseminate the project preliminary results and work progress amongst the nuclear research and industrial communities, as well as to identify future research needs. The workshop served 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.
