The SOTERIA End-User Group, an essential part of the SOTERIA project, had its very first meeting on Wednesday 6 April 2016, at the occasion of the NUGENIA Forum 2016, held on 5-7 April 2016 in Marseille, France. The User Group meeting brought together constructors, operators, research organisations, and NUGENIA members from Europe, the USA and Japan, all interested in the innovative tools developed within SOTERIA. Representatives from the Jules Horowitz Reactor (JHR) project consortium were also present at the meeting and expressed their interest in joining the group.
As a matter of fact, the members of the End-User Group will receive first-hand information and training on the tools developed within SOTERIA and thus get the opportunity to evaluate the applicability of these tools in the industrial sector. They will also be asked to define end-user case studies based on their own experimental data (as input of models or as variable of interest).
The kick-off event went very well and the high interest from the participants promises to lead to a fruitful cooperation between the End-User group and the project.
It is still possible to join the End-User Group. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Marc BERVEILLER (EDF): firstname.lastname@example.org
