NTI staff joined nearly 90 experts from 21 countries and the European Union for a Joint Working Group Meeting in Helsinki on March 5-7, 2019. The meeting was hosted by Finland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority of Finland. The three technical working groups made considerable progress in preparation for a series of practical activities planned for 2019, which include: a tabletop exercise, or “walkthrough” of the IPNDV’s 14-steps in the nuclear dismantlement lifecycle; a dismantlement exercise hosted by Germany and France at Forschungszentrum Jülich; and technology demonstrations hosted by Belgium and Canada. Partners also continued refining plans for other outputs from Phase II, which will conclude at the end of this year. Opening statements and more photos from the event can be found on the IPNDV website here.
