Enhancing Nuclear Safety


Back to all the news


Registrations open for the final JASMIN workshop


On May 19, 2016, the IRSN, as project coordinator, is organizing the final workshop for the European JASMIN project (Joint Advanced Severe accidents Modeling and Integration for Na-cooled fast neutron reactors). 


Logo_Jasmin.jpgThe workshop is open not only to project partners, but to anyone working in the nuclear field (including research bodies, universities, manufacturers and safety bodies, etc.). The meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the results from the project and also the prospects for research into the safety of sodium-cooled fast neutron reactors. Those interested can register now by downloading the form on the right.


The JASMIN project was launched in 2011 as part of the European Commission's 7th Framework Program (FP) in nuclear fission safety. Its objective is to extend the use of the ASTEC package to sodium-cooled fast neutron reactors (SFRs). ASTEC was designed initially to simulate numerically  core-meltdown accidents in water-cooled nuclear reactors. JASMIN subscribes to the general objective of enhancing the resistance of 4th-generation SFRs to severe accidents, a major objective of the Strategic Research Agenda set by the SNETP (Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform).


Closing date for workshop registration: May 2, 2016.
