Name: 
Innovative integrative tools and platforms to be prepared for radiological emergencies and post-accident response in Europe
Acronym: 
PREPARE

This project aims to close gaps that have been identified in nuclear and radiological preparedness following the first evaluation of the Fukushima disaster. It addresses the call Fission-2010-3.3.1: Update of emergency management and rehabilitation strategies and expertise in Europe.

The consortium intends to review existing operational procedures in dealing with long lasting releases, address the cross border problematic in monitoring and safety of goods and will further develop still missing functionalities in decision support system ranging from improved source term estimation and dispersion modelling to the inclusion of hydrological pathways for European water bodies.

As the management of the Fukushima event in Europe was far from being optimal, we propose to develop means on a scientific and operational basis to improve information collection, information exchange and the evaluation for such types of accidents. This will be achieved through a collaboration of industry, research and governmental organisations in Europe taking into account the networking activities carried out under the NERIS-TP project.

The project will be implemented by the Software & Knowledge Engineering Laboratory (SKEL) in cooperation with the Environmental Research Laboratory (EREL) and the Research Reactor Laboratory (RRL) from the Institute of Nuclear Technology and Radiation Protection (INTRP).
